It's Official, Galaxy S II Coming to Boost, Virgin Mobile Getting the Galaxy Reverb

Samsung and Sprint held a press conference in New York City today to announce new phones for Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile.

Boost is getting the Galaxy SII 4G for $369.99. It will go on sale September 6. This is apparently a rebranded Sprint Samsung Epic Touch, an S II variant, that features an 4.5 inch 480 x 800 px screen, 8 MP camera, 1.2 GHz Samsung dual core Exynos processor, 1 GB RAM,  WiMAX 4G support and 16 GB of internal flash memory.

Boost is getting two other new Samsung phones next month, the $149.99 Galaxy Rush Android phone and the $59.99 Samsung Array QWERTY slider. The Array will ship available on Sept. 4, the Galaxy Rush will arrive in late September.

The Array (below, left) is a feature (non-smart) phone with a 2 MP camera and 2.4 inch screen. The Galaxy Rush (below, right) has 3.5-inch touchscreen, Android 4.0, 3 MP rear and 1.3 MP front-facing cameras.

Sprint also revealed that the new Galaxy S III is headed to Boost as well, but not until later this year. Update: it's MetroPCS that will be getting the S III this year, not Boost.


Virgin Mobile gets the Samsung Galaxy Reverb (below), also arriving mid-September, for $249.99. It's a mid-range phone, with a 4 inch 480 x 800 px screen, 756 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal memory, 5 MP rear and 1.3 MP front cameras, Android 4.0 and a single core 1.4 GHz Snapdragon S2 processor.

  1. Kind of suspected that the Galaxy S2 was coming to Boost. But the price tag is kind of scaring me away. Just another hand me down from Sprint.

  3. Absolutely no doubt a very good hand me down. But it ticks me off that Metro is getting the S3 while Boost gets the S2.

    1. why would u be mad use common sense man the SG3 came out late june early july it is a flagship phone so sprint would sell it on its contract plan to attract new contract customers their not going to put it on boost their prepaid brand until months after its release just like they are now releasing the SG2. metro pcs is its own company boost is the kid to sprint sprint owns boost. metro owns metro you get me so they can are getting the phone SG3 late but they still getting it only a few months after the main four carriers got it which is not bad for them.

  4. Also, keep in mind that the SG3 is an LTE phone while Boost is using Wimax for it's 4G which the SG2 uses for 4G speeds. Sprint would either have to get a Wimax version of the SG3 or bring LTE to their prepaid services (something that IMO won't happen anytime soon due to Wimax just coming to prepaid this year).
