T-Mobile has just added a new smartphone to its lineup and its none other than the much-rumored Samsung Galaxy Exhibit.
The Samsung Galaxy Exhibit is basically T-Mobile's version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini smartphone that launched globally last year.
TmoNews previously reported that the Galaxy Exhibit would land on T-Mobile on May 29 and it now seems it was accurate after all. The magenta carrier indeed started offering the Samsung Galaxy Exhibit for a $19.99 down payment followed by 24 monthly payments of $9. Customers can also choose to pay the full price outright, which amounts to $235.99.
Considering that the Galaxy Exhibit is a decent mid-range smartphone, the price tag is quite attractive. The $19.99 price tag with 24 subsequent monthly payments of $9 per month also entails a T-Mobile calls, data and text plan on top.
The new T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Exhibit sports a 4-inch display with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels and packs a dual-core processor clocked at 1GHz under the hood. The smartphone also features a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 1-megapixel front facing shooter and runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
Other features of the Samsung Galaxy Exhibit include a micro SD card slot for additional memory and a decent 1,500 mAh battery. The Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini proved to be a popular alternative for those who wanted some of the great experience the Galaxy S3 had to offer, but were on a more limited budget. The Mini version of the then-flagship Galaxy smartphone traded in some specs and features for a more compact design and cheaper price tag, and T-Mobile's version is expected to entice plenty of customers.
Samsung also announced the Galaxy S4 Mini, i.e. the smaller version of its current Galaxy flagship smartphone. That handset is expected to launch at the company's "Premiere 2013" event in London on June 20. It remains unclear, however, whether T-Mobile will ever sell that smartphone or a version of it, so for now the mid-range Samsung Galaxy Exhibit is a pretty good choice for T-Mobile customers. Interested buyers can pick up a new Samsung Galaxy Exhibit from T-Mobile's website.
