Samsung Galaxy S II for Boost Mobile

Samsung has teamed up with Boost and Virgin Mobile to unleash a slew of new contract-free smartphones. Amongst the line-up is a Samsung Galaxy S II model for Boost Mobile, and the Samsung Galaxy Reverb for Virgin Mobile.

The Samsung Galaxy S II is being priced competitively at $369. The phone will be available in a choice of white or black and it comes running Android 4.0. Under the hood you get the same prowress that made the S II so popular, that includes a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and an amazing 8MP camera.

Boost Mobile and Samsung are also introducing another Android smartphone, albeit a more affordable one – the Samsung Galaxy Rush, which will retail for $149 when it becomes available in late September. The Rush packs in a 3.5″ display, a 3MP rear camera, a 1.3MP front-facing camera, it’s powered by a 1GHz processor, and comes running Android 4.0.

Finally, the Samsung Galaxy Reverb is Virgin Mobile’s first Samsung Galaxy class device. The Reverbe packs in a 4″ WVGA display, a 5 MP rear-facing camera, a 1.3MP front-facing camera, a 1.4GHz processor, and it comes running Android 4.0 too. The Samsung Galaxy Reverb will be available to purchase in September for $249.99.

All of the announced devices have support for Sprint’s 4G network. And one thing is for sure – the smartphone line-up for contract-free wireless providers is getting better and better everyday.
