T-Mobile has announced the Samsung Galaxy Avant, a smartphone that brings the Samsung Galaxy experience to consumers on the cheap.
The Galaxy Avant is equipped with an unspecified 1.2GHz quad-core processor that is paired with 1.5GB of RAM. That processor is powering a 4.5-inch 960×540 display and Android 4.4 KitKat. While there’s only 16GB of internal memory, the MicroSD slot allows for expandable memory up to 64GB.
Other specifications include a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, and while there’s a front-facing camera, its megapixel count is unspecified. What isn’t unspecified, thankfully, is how much it costs. If you opt for a payment plan, the Galaxy Avant can be yours for $9 a month. If you want to buy it outright, however, it costs $216.
For all intents and purposes, the Galaxy Avant is the Galaxy Core LTE. Regardless, the $216 does represent a good value if you’re looking for your first smartphones (or one for your kids). If you’re interested in the Galaxy Avant, it’s currently available for purchase from T-Mobile’s website.
