Boost Mobile has revealed the 4G version of the Samsung Galaxy S II mobile phone with the revamped design and for the pricing of $369.99. The 4.52-inch Super AMOLED™ Plus powered display of the Galaxy S II comes in Titanium color, and has a camera with 1080p HD video recording capability. The 4G LTE network would be supported by the Sprint’s WiMax radios which have been passed to the Boost and Virgin Mobile.
The specifications of the Samsung Galaxy S2 4G available through Boost Mobile are –
- Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) operating system
- Dual-mode 3G/4G
- 8MP camera (2MP front facing) with 1080P full HD video
- Dual-core 1.2GHz processor
- 16GB internal memory
- 8 hours talk time
- Wi-Fi/mobile hotspot capability (additional fee of $10/month)
“Together with Samsung we continue to launch compelling device options from entry level to 4G-enabled smartphones to meet the evolving needs of our customers,” said Andre Smith, vice president-Boost Mobile. “Launching the award-winning Samsung Galaxy S II 4G marks a defining moment for Boost’s customers craving a portable entertainment powerhouse on a no-contract unlimited plan that shrinks to as low as $40 a month.”
The Galaxy S II 4G is paired with Boost Mobile’s no-contract $55 Android Monthly Unlimited plan with Shrinking Payments. For every six on-time payments, the cost of Boost Mobile’s Monthly Unlimited plan shrinks by $5, eventually getting down to as low as $40 a month for unlimited nationwide talk, text and picture messaging, Web, email and calls to 411. Payments do not need to be consecutive to qualify for the next savings milestone.
Along with the Titanium Samsung Galaxy S II, there are a couple more phones unveiled by Boost Mobile – The Samsung Galaxy Rush and the Galaxy Array. When there is a rush of devices with almost the same specs and operating system versions, one would even have the connectivity in mind, and would prefer to go with the one which has the compatibility to the 4G LTE networks.
