T-Mobile Prepaid Samsung Galaxy Exhibit 4G Specifications

T-Mobile and Samsung announced today that the Samsung Exhibit Galaxy 4G Android phone will go on sale tomorrow, Oct. 27th. exclusively at Walmart stores and walmart.com for the no contract price of $199.99.

By virtue of its support for HSPA+ The Exhibit II's is the first 4G prepaid phone ever sold at Walmart.

Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread OS
Qualcomm MSM8255 (1.0GHz Single Core) Processor with Adreno 205 GPU
Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n
Wi-Fi Sharing (Up to 8 connections)
Tethering APN
Micro USB
Bluetooth® 3.0, Power Class 1, A2DP (stereo Bluetooth), OPP (Object Push Profile)
3MP (rear-facing) camera with LED Flash, 3x digital zoom, Auto Focus, Face Detection and Video recording MPEG4
VGA (front-facing) camera for video calling over T-Mobile’s 4G network or Wi-Fi.

The specs are very good for an Android phone with an subsidized price under $200.  A year ago you would be looking at a $500 top of the line model if you wanted such a large and high resolution screen  and as fast a processor.  The spec's weakest point seems to be the 3 MP camera which is on the low side for a modern smartphone.

The Exhibit II can be activated on any T-Mobile prepaid plan but the best fit is a plan with lots of included 4G data like the $70 or $60 unlimited monthly plans or the $30 Walmart plan that comes with unlimited messaging and data (first 5 GB at 4G speeds) and 100 minutes.

  1. Yeswap,

    I would like your opinion on a new Samsung galaxy S. I am monitoring this website and others to find a good price, but I don't trust Ebay or Amazon that much. I wish Tmobile would let me buy it online or at the store, but I want the $30 unlimited data, monthly prepaid plan. Walmart has it but the phone is more expensive (around $560).
    Do you think that Wirefly or Newegg are good options if I find a good price? Do you have any other suggestions of where to buy it at a good price?
    Thank you!

  2. The Galaxy S isn't exactly new as it was released early this year. It's still an excellent phone. I have the Sprint Nexus S which is the "pure Google" version of the Galaxy S which I think is the best phone I've ever used.

    The upgraded Galaxy S 4G is available online from T-Mobile for $349.99 (refurbished). I doubt you will find it anywhere cheaper. If you do be sure it's the T-Mobile version or you won't get 3G

  3. Thank you for your answer, Yeswap.

    When I said "new" I meant not refurbished :-) My budget is very limited so I thought that since the new Galaxy S II is out the "old" Galaxy S would go on sale. But maybe that's not the case...

    I have to make sure then to buy a T-mobile Galaxy to get the 3G. But the $30 plan says that I will get the 4G. I am not too technical, so then does it mean that if I buy an unlocked phone I won't get the 3 or 4G?

    Thank you!

  4. The refurbished phones are generally indistinguishable from new. Warranted is only 90 days instead of a year though.

    The "suggested retail" off-contract post-paid price of a new T-Mobile Galaxy S 4G is listed as $399.99. I don't know if they'd sell you one at that price for prepaid use but it's worth asking, both through tele-sales and at T-Mobile stores.

    T-Mobile uses uncommon frequencies for 3G/4. An unlocked AT&T or international Galaxy S wouldn't support T-Mobile frequencies and would only get 2.5G

  5. I bought this phone, the T-Mobile Exhibit II. It's my first smart phone, and I am impressed so far. The only thing that bothers me is the battery life. I don't use it that much and I have to recharge it every day. I have it in power saving mode and still... But a good phone in deed, and at a very attractive price. I am glad I got it before it went temporary out of stock in Walmart and Amazon!
