Sprint’s already generous smartphone line-up is about to get downright crowded, as three new handhelds have just had their release dates on the network confirmed, with a fourth finally getting slapped with a price tag.
First thing first, let’s say LG’s G2, available for a while now with Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile and discounted with Big Red pacts to one penny, will at long last see daylight on Sprint November 8. Far too late to make a difference? You got that right, especially as the 5.2-incher will go for $200 on-contract with the Now Network.
November 8 is D-Day for a Samsung duo as well, namely the Galaxy Mega 6.3 and Galaxy S4 mini. The former, up for grabs on AT&T for $150, will go with Sprint pacts for $199.99, whereas the latter is destined to start at a much more affordable $99.99.
Finally, though HTC’s spanking new One max is still in need of a clear ETA (translation: stop with the “holiday season” bs already), at least we know something unequivocal on pricing. Then again, sometimes it’s better to not know, as the 5.9-incher is to cost $249.99 with 24-month Sprint agreements.
Granted, its size and gimmicky fingerprint recognition may warrant extravagant pricing, but don’t forget for a second the One max packs Snapdragon 600 speed (not 800) and tips the scales at a whopping 217 grams.
