We saw a leaked press render of a Galaxy S2 "Titanium" coming to Sprint just a couple weeks ago, which was reaffirmed by a device roadmap leak as well. Now we're getting an idea for where the device is headed, and it looks to be coming to Sprint's prepaid options. Boost Mobile is picking up this color-refreshed Galaxy SII (S2) for the holiday season. It's the same S2 we've seen dozens of times before, this time just with a new skin around the outside. This model is given the "4G" moniker because it packs Sprint's legacy WiMax radios, which have since been passed down to Boost and VIrgin Mobile.
The Galaxy S2 is hitting Boost Mobile retail stores for $369.99 without a contract, with monthly bills as low as $40 per month. If this sounds like your kind of thing, the device is available starting today.
