A phone that was released back in October 2014 in India is coming to another carrier here in the U.S. The first carrier to start selling the Galaxy Grand Prime was Cricket Wireless back in April for the price of $179.99 with no contract. Now it’s Sprint’s turn to offer this device.
The phone will start selling three days from now, on July 10th for a no contract price of $240. You do also have the option of getting the phone for $0 down by paying $10 per month for the next 24 months thanks to Sprint’s Easy Pay plan (for prime customers). If you’re not going to go through the Easy Pay plan or wanting to pay full retail price, there’s always the option of signing another two year contract and paying $29.99 after a mail in rebate of $50.
This mid range Samsung phone has some pretty decent specs for the price of $240. Screen size comes in at 5 inches (540×960), has an 8 megapixel rear facing camera with a 5 megapixel front facing camera. The specifications round out with 8GB of internal storage, 1.5GB of RAM, a 1.2GHz quad core processor (Snapdragon 410 chipset), and microSD support for up to 128GB of expandable storage. Android Lollipop 5.1 looks to come pre-installed from the picture that was provided to Android Central. The phone is also equipped with 4G LTE and Spark capabilities, so you’ll get blazing fast data speeds.
