It packs a 1.6GHz quad-core processor with 2GB RAM and comes with 16GB internal storage with a microSD option. It runs on Android Jelly Bean and has a 5-megapixel camera at the back plus a 1.3-megapixel lens in front.

  • Its like Galaxy Tab ya?

    • like the tab 7.7 but with a pen and calling feature and the features of all galaxy note.

  • Griswold

    may limit po ba yung makaka-avail nung free phones? baka paunahan ulit yan makakuha ng number.

    • amg sabi sa amin, ayaw daw ng DTI na may number limit yung mga promo. so sabi ni samsung, as long as swak ka sa 10 to 12noon sa pila, bubunot ka sa raffle ng phone na mapapanalunan mo pag bumili ka ng note 8.

  • Pao

    I was able to look for a Galaxy Tab 10.1 for the same price. Should I buy the 10.1 instead?

    • depends on your need eh. if you want a bigger, heavier tablet or the more portable one that comes with a stylus and you can make calls with.

  • Baka gift cert lang yung prize ng iba, haha.

  • bobet

    sana mag-release ng black version

  • Gelo

    Not AMOLED, Cam WITHOUT FLASH? Not so cool!

  • chase

    Too pricey : ) at a 24K pricerange. Already at laptop pricerange

    • uhmm if you’re looking for a laptop then obviously you won’t buy this one.

  • Dale

    Sayang, nasa cebu ako now 🙁

  • techNo

    eh yung Wifi only kaya magkano? at kailan release date?

    • wala pa silang plan i-release ang WiFi only sa mga stores. Sa Sun lang daw talaga as of now.

      • techNo

        thanks. maghihintay na lang siguro ako ng mga magpla-plan sa sun cell tapos ibebenta din ang kanilang mga tablets.hehe. But too confused ang ipad mini cellular nasa 20k lang.

    Hi. Is the free phone and book cover promo also available for people who’ll use credit card(12 months 0%interest) or cash only?

    And whatever happens each person who will line up from 10am to 12pm will get a free phone?


    • hi jamie, yep that’s what samsung ph told us.

      • Jamie

        So this promo can also be availed using credit cards?

  • Stan

    I’d just like to inquire on how the mechanics of the phone will be given. Will the consumers literally get to pick the phone of their choosing(highly doubt it though) as you said we get to pick a prize or will it be like a raffle of some sort? I got a relative who is planning on buying a tablet and i need a new phone aswell and 4 of the phones listed above are decent enough. Please reply ASAP. Thank you!!

    • pick a prize randomly. dunno if it’s from a fishbowl but you get the idea. it’s up to fate kung anong phone ang makuha ng relative mo.

  • Ty

      • Cindy

        Awts…un p nmn habol ko kaya gusto ko na mgswitch from ipad2 to samsung ay dahil s adobe flash for streaming..

        Sir good specs din nmn un galaxy 7.7 anu po? Bka un n lng bilhin ko..thank u ulit 🙂

        • yup 7.7 is still good. if you don’t need the S-Pen pwede rin naman yung 7.7

  • justin

    ask ko lang po if ano ang mas mganda yung 10.1 or 8.0 ,when it comes to specs ?? and may adobe touch na po ba na nka install sa 8.0 kpag binili ?? and last yung 10.1 po ba pde gmitin as a phone ?? i’m planning to buy kse ehh kso hndi ko alam kung anong mas okay na tablet .. hoping for ur reply .. thankyou :))

  • deeperdigger


    Would you know if the SRP P23,990 will also be the price if credit card and/or installemnt purchase or will the cost be higher?
