Samsung Launches Galaxy Admire 4G

By - Source: MetroPCS | B 9 comments

$170 handset is LTE-ready.

Samsung has launched its Galaxy Admire 4G smartphone, which is now available from U.S. carrier MetroPCS.

While it may bear more of a resemblance to the Samsung Galaxy S3 than the original Samsung Galaxy Admire, it does boast the Admire moniker.

The device itself introduces LTE connectivity, which brings faster data transfer when compared to Metro's 2.5G network.

However, the smartphone is lacking in its technical specifications. In addition to a 3.65-inch HVGA screen, it has a 1GHz processor and one of the older version of Android -- 2.3 Gingerbread.

The Admire 4G also features a 3-megapixel rear-facing camera and a VGA front-facing camera for video chat support. MetroPCS is now selling the Admire 4G online for $169 with no contract requirement. It'll launch in stores from December 7.

    @otacon72 a new phone? at least he is giving people info that some people didn't know about. and at least its not something like "iphone sales dropped 2%" or some bullshit we didnt need to know.

    The point of these "news" is so that we get them before we hear/see from other places. Like i wouldn't know if samsung would have released a new phone unless they did some huge ad around the place and same thing with apple.

    Your pretty much saying "What a new (insert something new that is about to come out)?!? i don't need this bullshit, (insert name) sucks at his job of finding material to write about"

    otacon72Sheesh Zak ANOTHER article about Samsung?!?! Dude all you're doing is advertising for Saumsung. You suck. Slow news day I guess. We should just rename this website to Toms's Samsung Guide. Never knew how pathetic the iHaters sounded until I acted like one...

    If Zak isn't doing a article about Apple, then it's an act of god! O_O

    You miss the point...
    Nobody would complain about articles like "Apple launches new iPhone 6". The problem are articles like "Analyst says new iPhone 6 may be available in a sighly darker shade of black".

    He's missing a lot of points... One could sit down and educate him a bit, but then again... what's the point?
    The amount of research material found online is incredible, yet some people choose to stay ignorant and fall back on the same false preconceptions again and again.
    Whatever...

    I'm not supportive of Samsung launching what appears to be a purposely castrated phone. I know those desiring pre-paids and and lower cost devices need products too but Android 2.3? Really? Really? Is that legal?

    I got my mom a 3G HTC One V for $50 on Virgin Mobile. It has a 1.4Ghz CPU, 512mb RAM, Android ICS, "beats" audio, and a 3.7" LCD. That is way better than this phone.

    This model looks like the kind that will go strait to those pay-as-you-go companies. I know a bunch of people who want a "smartphone" no mater how castrated it is, just so they can say "hey, my mom now has a smartphone!"

    It'll be perfect for people who need a phone they can toss at a moment's notice but who don't want to draw attention to themselves by using a clamshell. :p
