Samsung Galaxy Amp Prime 2 is Cricket’s new cheap phone running Android Nougat


Last updated: April 24th, 2017 at 09:08 UTC+02:00

Even though there are some variants of Samsung’s previous generation flagship smartphones that are yet to receive the Nougat update, Cricket has announced the Galaxy Amp Prime 2, a new cheap phone running Android 7.0 out of the box. The smartphone is a successor to last year’s Galaxy Amp Prime, and a rebranded version of Sprint’s Galaxy J3 Emerge that was launched earlier this year. It is available from Cricket for $149.99 with activation.

The Galaxy Amp Prime 2 features a 5-inch HD display (probably LCD), a 5-megapixel primary camera with HD video recording, and a 2-megapixel secondary camera. It is equipped with a 1.35GHz quad-core processor (probably a Snapdragon 430 chipset), 1.5GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, and a microSD card slot. It features 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and microUSB port for connectivity, and comes packed with a 2,600 mAh battery.
