Cricket Wireless is readying the launch of no less than three new Samsung Android smartphones. The first one is the high-end Galaxy S4. As previously reported, Cricket will start selling the S4 on June 7. The handset will cost $599.99 – no contract required.
Like the S4 that’s already available via most of the other US mobile operators, Cricket’s version will run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean at launch, coming with a 5 inch Full HD display, LTE, quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 13MP rear camera.
“The Galaxy S4 redefines the smartphone and we are very proud to offer our customers the highest level of wireless technology on the market. Cricket’s three smartphone rate plans start as low as $45 per month1 and give customers value-packed choices for the plan that’s right for them with unlimited music included,” declared Matt Stoiber, senior vice president of devices for Cricket.
Next we have the Galaxy Admire 2. This is the device that US Cellular is currently selling as the Galaxy Axiom. It runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, featuring a 4 inch WVGA display, LTE connectivity, dual-core processor, and a 5MP rear camera.
And finally, the Galaxy Discover is smaller, sporting a 3.5 inch HVGA display, and featuring Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, plus a 3MP rear camera.
