T-Mobile announces the Samsung Exhibit II 4G, available at Walmart starting tomorrow
The Samsung Exhibit II 4G, T-Mobile’s latest budget-friendly 4G device, is set to hit most Walmart stores tomorrow. We first heard about the Samsung Exhibit II 4G a couple weeks ago when it dropped its Galaxy W moniker and showed up in a leaked T-Mobile inventory sheet. Today T-Mobile and Samsung have officially announced the Samung Exhibit II 4G which will be the first no annual contract 4G smartphone to be sold at Walmart starting October 27. The device will eventually make it to T-Mobile retail stores as well as www.T-Mobile.com starting Nov. 2.
Those looking for a budget-friendly 4G solution will be pleased to know that the Exhibit II 4G will be offered for $29.99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate card with a two-year service agreement and $199.99 via no annual contract. The Exhibit II 4G’s specs are what can be expected out of a mid-range budget phone and include:
- A 3.7-inch WVGA TFT touchscreen
- A 1 GHz Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processor
- 3-megapixel rear-facing camera with flash and video capture capabilities
- Front-facing camera for video-chatting
- Android™ 2.3 Gingerbread
- T-Mobile® TV in mobile HD and Samsung Media Hub.
The processor came in a tad bit smaller than predicted as well as the retail price being higher than the expected $99, but for a 4G budget device, it’s a deal worth looking at. Let us know what you think and if you plan on picking one up tomorrow.
