Boost adds Samsung Galaxy S II 4G, Galaxy Rush to lineup

69

Boost Mobile has announced a pair of Android-powered smartphones from Samsung, both of which are due in September.  Each is a little different from the next and offers something unique to their pre-paid subscriber base.  Generally speaking, one could consider these two to be on the opposite end of the Android spectrum for Boost Mobile.

First up is the Samsung Galaxy S II 4G, an Android 4.0 experience with a a 4.5-inch display, dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB RAM, and 16GB internal storage. Like the Galaxy S II from 2011, this one also comes with an 8-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and 4G WiMAX connectivity.  Look for this one to arrive September 6 with a $369.99 price tag.

Next up is the Galaxy Rush, another Android 4.0 smartphone, with a 3.5-inch display, 3-megapixel camera, and 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.  Priced at a much lower $149.99, this guy should be retail stores at the end of September.

Both of these Samsung phones can be paired with Boost Mobile’s no-contract $55 Android Monthly Unlimited plan with Shrinking Payments.  This means that for every six on-time payments (even non-consecutive), the plan shrinks by $5, eventually getting down to $40/month for unlimited nationwide talk, text and picture messaging, and web (2.5GB per month of full-speed data).
