Boost Mobile Getting Galaxy S6 April 10

Sprint's Boost Mobile announced on Facebook today that the Samsung Galaxy S6 will be available on Boost starting April 10. That's the same date that the S6 is being released on postpaid operators. No price was given but I'm guessing it will be $599.99 like the S5 was when it was released last year.

Key features of the S6 include:

  • 5.1" Quad HD Super AMOLED screen with 2560 x 1440 px resolution and 577 PPI density
  • 16MP main camera with 0.7 second activation for faster response and auto real-time HDR
  • Front facing 5 MP Selfie Camera with 120° wide angle lens
  • Smart Charging: 10 minutes on charger is good for 4 hrs of regular use or 2 hrs of HD video.
  • Wireless charging support
  • Sansung Exynos 7420 eight core 2.1 Ghz 64 bit processor
  •  32, 64 or 128 GB internal memory (I suspect Boost will get the 32 GB version)
  • 2,550 mAh non-removable battery
  • Aluminum body
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop
  • 143.4 x 70.5 x 6.8 mm dimensions, 138 gram weight
Notably missing are an SD card slot and a user replaceable battery, which were big selling points for previous Galaxy S versions.

If you want to be one of the first to get the S6, Boost is accepting pre-registrations here.

  1. I'm a big fan of finding the best possible budget smartphone. Currently, I use an LG Transpyre on Verizon Wireless and I'm very impressed. I honestly don't see the point of a high end smartphone. I'd rather have a nice tablet.

  2. Hi Dennis.
    I'm a dealer and we just got notified that it will cost $649.99 and It will only be available in black sapphire.

    1. I can't imagine it will be any sort of doorbuster, considering the price and Boost-Sprint's poor coverage.

      This has me wondering if this is the highest price ever for an MVNO/similar marketed smartphone.

  3. Absent from the list of cons is the biggest problem of all, a slow processor. Samsung should have gone with the Qualcomm 805, 810 or an Intel processor. Samsung tried to save money and consumers will get stuck with a slow, inefficient Exynos processor. Fortunately, LG, HTC, Motorola, Sony etc offer flagship phones with strong Qualcomm or Intel processors.

  4. For an Internet Radio owner/operator its a MUST to have a smartphone with at least a 4.7 inch screen as I use LiveWebDj which has some very small links to try and tap. It works very well for the GAlaxy Note 2 and pretty well on the S4. Also it is a MUST for me to have a 4G phone and a smartphone with enough RAM that my Internet Radio apps don't bog down. Some of those low end phones like the ZTE Imperial just don't cut the mustard they are real cheap toys. Plus you can get a nice LG G2, Galaxy S4, HTC pretty reasonable if you look. The Motorola's are nice as they are very rugged and should last at what the general wear and tear will put on it. These are very important features when I look at a smartphone. I won't go too cheap here.

  5. legacy: off topic: I have been interested in internet streaming radio, and have some questions about this. Any place I can get a hold of you?

  6. I do my shows from Noon till 5PM (Sometimes 8PM. You can goto my station's site and Download the app for your android then you'll know when I do my show. Plus I have a RockLine you could call to talk with me directly. I can get you in contact with the best Internet Radio software out there and help you to get a good dependable Android phone to monitor the station. As long as you stay away from Straight Talk and either go with Verizon, AT&T, Cricket you'll have the best coverage while you monitor your station on the road. Plus if you use LiveWebDj you can take requests away from home while your away as it has 20 GB of storage for your station. I'll talk more about Part 15 FM Transmitters too so you can set up a part 15 Radio transmitter to Dj the neighborhood as well.

    1. Thanks! And thanks for getting it back on topic with mentions of pre paid phone services.

  7. Great Great Phone, dismal network
