Samsung Galaxy Ring

Low-end specs and a familiar design hit a great off-contract price point

Virgin Mobile has quietly announced that it will be carrying a new entry-level device, the Samsung Galaxy Ring, starting today for just $179 without a contract. In both design and specifications, the Galaxy Ring slots right in with other low-end Samsung handsets -- with a 4-inch 480x800 display, 1.4GHz single-core (MSM8655) processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of storage (with SDcard support), 1750mAh battery and 5MP/1.3MP cameras. On the software side, we're looking at Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with Samsung's software enhancements along with it. The Galaxy Ring is a 3G (CDMA)-only device, which you would expect at a price point like this.

Virgin offers the Galaxy Ring on any of its no-contract plans, which are very price competitive at $35, $45 or $55 for 300, 1200 or unlimited minutes, respectively, along with unlimited data. The Galaxy Ring is available starting today, and can be purchased online at the source link below.

Flexible No-Contract Service Options:  With the innovative technology of Samsung Galaxy S III, Virgin Mobile USA customers will appreciate the real savings over postpaid service of our monthly Beyond Talk plans which offer unlimited data and messaging starting at $35 per month. These no-contract plans are especially designed for data-savvy customers, who tend to surf the internet; send emails, texts and instant messages and post to social networks more than they use their phones for calling.  As Sir Richard Branson asks in his Virgin Mobile USA video manifesto for A Higher Calling, “Why pay for minutes when it’s unlimited data you really want?”

How about a cheaper than $200 lte device Virgin?

No LTE? You'd be better off going with the Victory 4G LTE in my opinion.

This is like a mix-up of high-end, mid-range, and low-end specs.
