As much as display technology has advanced, OLED screens are still more expensive compared to their LCD counterparts. This is why when it comes to budget phones, it’s not surprising that many of them still rely on LCD to help keep costs down.
If you’re looking for a cheap smartphone, then perhaps Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy A15 5G could be a phone to look out for. The handset hasn’t been officially announced, but a listing on Walmart’s website has revealed its existence and some of its specs, including the use of an OLED display.
Why is this a big deal? According to the list price, the handset will be sold for $139, which is insanely affordable especially when you consider its OLED display. This would make the Galaxy A15 5G one of the cheapest OLED smartphones around. Other specs include a MediaTek chipset, a 50MP main camera, and a 5,000mAh battery.
With budget phones, there’s really nothing to shout about, but at this price and with its OLED display, it could be a great option for those shopping on a budget and want a phone that gives them the best value for money. We’ll be keeping an eye out for the official announcement so be sure to check back with us again later for updates.
