Quietly, without so much as an official word, US Cellular has made the Samsung Galaxy Axiom available today. We’ve seen the Axiom once so far, a couple of weeks ago, when a press shot depicting it got leaked alongside some details. Turns out those were accurate, and the device is now ready to be ordered online from US Cellular.
The Galaxy Axiom looks to be that particular carrier’s interpretation of the Samsung Galaxy S III Mini that got announced for a global release not long ago. Specs are very similar, and the looks aren’t much different either.
The Samsung Galaxy Axiom comes with a 4-inch 480×800 touchscreen, a 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, a 5 MP rear camera with LED flash, a 1.3 MP front-facing camera, 4 GB of built-in storage space (of which 1.8 GB is available to the user), microSD card support, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC, and a 2,100 mAh battery. It runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The processor frequency, the battery capacity and the LTE support are steps up from the Galaxy S III Mini, while the OS version the Axiom is running is unfortunately a step down. Still, it looks to be an interesting midranger if your carrier of choice is US Cellular.
The Galaxy Axiom is available for free in some regions, and for $79.99 in others, with a new two-year contract. In case you don’t want to sign a long-term agreement to get the device, you’ll need to pay $399.
