    Boost Mobile now offering Galaxy A21 at $50 off, A11 coming soon

    Boost Mobile is expanding its Samsung device lineup with two new budget-friendly smartphones in the form of the Galaxy A21 and Galaxy A11, the carrier announced Tuesday. The Galaxy A21 can already be purchased from the Boost Mobile online store, priced at $199, which is $50 below its MSRP. The Galaxy A11 will become available on similarly favorable terms starting July 21st. More specifically, the former Sprint subsidiary will be offering the $179 handset at a $129 price point.

    Both deals are said to be of the time-limited variety, albeit the company has yet to clarify how long either promotional period will last.

    Large displays and aggressive pricing

    It was only last week that the Galaxy A21 hit U.S. store shelves without much fanfare, whereas its lower-specced counterpart has yet to become available for purchase in the country. Both smartphones were announced as part of an all-encompassing product event Samsung held in May. They're barely distinguishable in terms of display real estate as the Galaxy A21 features a 6.5-inch (1,600 x 720) screen, whereas the Galaxy A11 uses a 6.4-inch (1,560 x 720) one instead. Performance should be comparable as well, at least when comparing the Galaxy A21 with the 3GB RAM variant of the Galaxy A11.

    Boost Mobile has been a pretty reliable prepaid partner to Samsung for many years now. However, it was only last week that the carrier was sold to Dish for $1.4 billion as part of concessions Sprint and T-Mobile negotiated in exchange for their merger getting approval from U.S. antitrust regulators. It's still too early to tell if the new ownership will be making any radical changes to Boost Mobile's device strategy, which is unlikely to be high on top of anyone's priority list anyway due to the minuscule profit margins that non-premium smartphones command.
