The price details for the Samsung Galaxy Admire 4G arriving through MetroPCS, have been unveiled and the smartphone has even gone up for purchase in the US. This handset falls under the entry-level segment tagging along LTE support at an affordable cost like the Galaxy Victory, the LG Motion 4G and the ZTE Anthem.
The Galaxy Admire 4G is the enhanced version of its predecessor which carries the same moniker, sans the connectivity feature. The device comes with a faster processor, a 1GHz single core SOC to be precise, and a larger display which measures 3.65 inches wide proffering a HVGA resolution and a Corning Gorilla Glass layer for added protection. The Android Gingerbread platform runs the show here, while 4G LTE connectivity renders access to rich content online.
With Mobile Hotspot support, users will be able to share their internet connection with others. However, a monthly charge is applicable to utilize the service. The phone comes loaded with the Google Play store and the carrier’s own App Store. The integrated storage sums up to 1.38GB and there’s even a microSD card slot for expansion needs, compatible with up to 32GB. The device will arrive bundled with a 2GB memory card for free. Lastly, a 3.2MP rear-facing camera and a VGA front-facing snapper have been fitted onto the handset’s 0.47 inch thick form factor.
Where tariff plans are concerned, the carrier is offering a wide range of options. The noteworthy ones include limitless talktime, text and data with 5GB of LTE usage, after which the downlink speed is reduced, for $60. This choice tags along Rhapsody Unlimited Music which provides access to a wide catalog of songs online. Additionally, there’s also a $55 4G LTE subscription that delivers unlimited data, minutes and messages. If coupled with more than one 1 line, the cost drops down to $50 per month. For $70 a month, customers will get the aforementioned benefits with Rhapsody Unlimited Music and MetroStudio video on demand service.
