Cricket Goes for Another Ovation
Cricket today launched its latest Cricket-branded affordable Android phone: the Ovation 2. The new phone is very similar to the first Ovation in terms of specs and features. The biggest difference is a taller screen that brings the screen size to 6.8 inches. Key specs include a MediaTek Helio A22 processor, large 3,900 mAh battery, 13 megapixel main camera, 5 megapixel wide camera, 8 megapixel front camera, and a fingerprint reader on the back. It also has 3 GB RAM, 32 GB built-in storage, a memory card slot, and a headset jack. The phone comes in "Evergreen" and available now for $130. The Ovation 2 is manufactured by FIH (a division of Foxconn) and sourced for Cricket by Emblem, which has a multi-year contract to supply AT&T and Cricket with private-label phones. The original Ovation was manufactured by Tinno.
