The world of no-contract phones just got a little more high end. Boost Mobile in conjunction with Samsung unveiled the latest additions to the Boost Mobile line-up, the Samsung Galaxy S II 4G and the new Samsung Galaxy Rush. This marks the first time the Galaxy S II will be offered in the United States without a contract.
Running on Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), the Galaxy Rush features a 1GHz Qualcomm CPU MSM8655 CPU, 3.5-inch display, a full 3 megapixel rear-facing camera and 1.3 megapixel camera. Available sometime in late September, the Samsung Galaxy Rush will retail for $149. The Galaxy S II 4G will retail on September 6 for $369 in black and white.
The announcement comes on the heels of Boost Mobile debuting its $55 unlimited 4G data plans. Similar to other Boost Mobile devices, both the Galaxy S II 4G and the Galaxy Rush fall under the carrier's Shrinkage plan. Under the plan, customers will receive a $5 discount on their bill every 6 months for on time payments, eventually dropping the bill down to $40. The plan includes unlimited talk, text and data.
