Virgin Announces Samsung Galaxy Core Prime
Virgin Mobile today announced the pending availability of the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime smartphone. The device, which was approved by the FCC in late December and is the same as Boost Mobile's Galaxy Prevail 2, features a 4.5-inch screen, Snapdragon 410 processor, 5-megapixel camera, and Android 4.4 KitKat. The Core Prime will go on sale Jan. 17 — the same day as Virgin's new no-contract shared data plans — for $129.88.
Samsung churns out another entry-level Android handset for Boost Mobile's prepaid service. The Galaxy Prevail LTE is an updated handset that improves upon its predecessor's specs while maintaining a low price point.
