Samsung Galaxy S II 4G launched by Virgin Mobile

Virgin Mobile USA has announced the availability of Samsung Galaxy S II 4G. The handset can be purchased as of today – we already told you that this would happen, but it’s good to see the operator sticking to its plan.

Virgin Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy S II 4G costs $369.99 (no contract required), and can be purchased both online (here), and in stores. Customers should be able to find it in two color versions: white and titanium.

Like the Galaxy S II 4G released by Boost Mobile, the one available now at Virgin is nothing else than Sprint’s S II Epic Touch that was introduced last year. Still, it’s more than a nice offering for those who are in need of a new prepaid handset.

The S II runs Android Ice Cream Sandwich (upgradeable to Jelly Bean), and features 4G (Sprint’s Wimax, to be exact), a 4.5 inch Super AMOLED WVGA display, 8MP rear camera, 2.0MP front-facing camera, and a dual-core 1.2GHz processor.

    Do you know if Virgin Mobile’s SG2 is unlocked or can be easily unlocked for use under another carrier that uses chips instead of CDMA?

    It says “upgradeable” to JB BUT, do you think it will really ever see an update? Neither do I. It’s articles like this that bait the consumer into believing in the update fairy… Many Virgin phones are still selling with Gingerbread… You gain a slight screen size bump, however with less resolution, over the HTC EVO V with the same RAM and dual core 1.2 processor. The Evo has the trick 3d capability that’s guaranteed to get that “special shot” of the new friend you met at the rave all for $120 less… The Evo comes loaded with Flash, thats still being updated through the Adobe site. So if you enjoy watching video the EVO is the way to go.
