Echoing a theme that will be repeated much more this year, Samsung has announced a very inexpensive 5G phone. The Galaxy A32 5G debuts first in Europe, starting at € 279 for a 64 GB version or € 299 for 128 GB. There is still no official word on whether it will come to the United States.

We would still like to remind you that 5G alone is not a good reason to buy a new phone, but it is becoming more and more likely that some new phone you are considering this year will offer 5G, anyway.
