Samsung Galaxy Amp Prime hits Cricket Wireless
Cricket Wireless has just announced a very tempting deal for customers on a tight budget who are looking for a large screen smartphone with the latest Android version on board. Although most cheap Samsung handsets come with Android 5.1 Lollipop without offering any hope for an official firmware update, the $149.99 USD Galaxy Amp Prime runs Marshmallow out-of-the-box.
While the official press release does not offer many details about the Galaxy Amp Prime, Cricket Wireless says it packs premium features and aims "social media power users and value seekers." Its highlights include 4G LTE connectivity, a 5-inch Super AMOLED display, 5 MP main camera, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Additional features include one-handed operation support, Easy Mode for beginners and seniors, Ultra Power Savings Mode for extended battery life.
Next to the Galaxy Amp Prime, Cricket Wireless introduces an even more affordable handset, namely the Galaxy Amp 2. With a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED display and 4G LTE connectivity, it offers Quick Launch camera, Ultra Power Savings Mode, as well as an outdoor mode that increases the screen brightness for improved visibility in sunlight. Its price tag is $99.99 USD and will launch on April 15 while the Amp Prime can be already acquired online and in stores.
