Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate arrives on AT&T next week
If you happen to be one of the Android faithful that prefers the AT&T network, and aren’t too bothered about picking up the latest rage smartphone from Samsung in the form of the Galaxy S3, you might like to know that AT&T is launching the Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate on their network next week.
According to the guys over on Ubergizmo by way of the Boy Genius Report, the Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate is a cheaper environmentally friendly Android smartphone to the Samsung Galaxy S3, but naturally doesn’t sport the same features that are offered by the SGS3.
So what does the AT&T Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate offer the customer? Well the smartphone sports a 4-inch Super AMOLED touch screen along with a 5 megapixel rear facing auto-focus camera, 720p video, a 1.3 megapixel front facing snapper, a 1.2GHz dual core Scorpion processor, and runs the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system.
The Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate will also support LTE connectivity, and is apparently the first 4G LTE smartphone to gain platinum certification from UL Environment, and AT&T is marketing the Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate as an eco-friendly handset due to the rear cover being constructed from 80 percent recycled waste along with a low-load energy efficient charger.
The Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate Android smartphone will be made available in all AT&T channels as of the 10th of this month and commands a price tag of $49.99 when signing up for the usual two-year agreement, although there is no word if the smartphone will see an update to Android Ice Cream Sandwich at some point in the future.
So, does the Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate seems an appealing alternative to the Galaxy S3 for some of our AT&T faithful readers over in the States?
