Boost Mobile, in NYC on Wednesday, did add a trio of new Samsung Android smartphones to its fall lineup, offering a little something for everyone. Offered completely with off-contract, the first one handset is the Galaxy S2 4G, which will come in at a compelling $369.99 when it’s released on Sept. 6. It can be operated on Sprint’s 3G and 4G WiMax networks along with on WiFi mobile hotspot for up to five devices. Wait there’s more.
The smartphone will be joined by the two another phones, namely Galaxy Rush and Samsung Array, both affordable and small (but slightly revved-up) low-end Android options.
While the Galaxy Rush will be available in late September for $149.99, the landscape sliding feature equipped Samsung Array smartphone, targeted at avid texters, and is expected to be released on September 4 for $59.99.
Following is the quick spec run-down for trio of handsets, head over down for more:
Samsung Galaxy S2 4G: a 4.52-inch Super AMOLED display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, Android 4.0 ICS, 8MP rear and 2MP front-facing shooters, and 16GB of storage. Available in both black and white colors along with hotspot capabilities (additional $10/month fee)
Samsung Galaxy Rush: a 3.5-inch HVGA display, 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8655 processor, Ice Cream Sandwich, 768MB of RAM, 3MP rear snapper, 1.3MP front camera, 2GB built-in storage (microSD slot for expansion), 1,750mAh battery, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and more.
Samsung Array: a 2.4-inch LCD screen, featuring full slide-out QWERTY keyboard, 2MP camera, and web browser support.
All 3 devices can be purchased and used with Boost’s Shrinking Payments option. “Under the plan, customers will receive a $5 discount on their bill every 6 months for on time payments, eventually dropping the bill down to $40. The plan includes unlimited talk, text and data,” Boost said.
Moving on, Virgin Mobile was also a part of Wednesday’s festivities, announced that it’ll soon offer the Samsung Galaxy Reverb. The device is expected to go on sale in September for $249.99, though interested customers will be able to pre-order the device starting August 29. Unfortunately the device is limited to 3G data speeds, so don’t expect swift surfing unless connected to a Wi-Fi network.
