After bringing the A10e to AT&T last week, Samsung has now launched the budget all-rounder on Boost Mobile.
Despite being a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) running on Sprint’s network, Boost has a significant grip on the United States telecommunications sector.
Samsung is quite determined to get a foothold in the US’ budget smartphone category, and the company hopes to succeed through A10e’s largescale availability.
Dubbed as an inferior version of the A10, the A10e offers a good range of features for the price. It sports a notched 5.83-inch 1560 x 720 display, Exynos 7884B octa-core processor, 2 gigabytes of RAM, 32GB of inbuilt storage, 8MP rear camera, 5MP selfie camera, 3.5 headphone jack, and a pretty decent 3,000 mAh battery. The Micro USB charging interface is a bit of downer for some, but that’s certainly not a dealbreaker.
Where to buy
While AT&T launched the device for a $210 MSRP, Boost has proposed a little more complicated pricing. You can get the device for only $49.99 if you switch to Boost Mobile —from non-Sprint networks only — before July 19 and pick a monthly plan of $50 or higher.
