Samsung Array for Sprint is a QWERTY feature phone for the budget-conscious
Believe it or not, feature phones are still a thing. Sure, more and more of the newly bought handsets belong to the smartphone kind, but a huge chunk of subscribers still rely on simpler, more affordable devices. These are the people that the new Samsung Array for Sprint is made for. It stands out with its side-sliding QWERTY keyboard that heavy texters are surely going to appreciate. Seems like the handset could also turn out to be a decent music player with its 3.5-millimeter headphone jack and microSD card slot for storage expansion.
Other than that, the Samsung Array doesn't have anything to stand out with when it comes to hardware. It has a TFT LCD display of 2.4 inches with a resolution of 240 by 320 pixels and a pretty basic 2-megapixel camera with no LED flash. The processor inside it ticks at 480MHz and is made by Qualcomm. Its 1,000mAh battery should provide about 4 hours of continuous talk time or a little over 10 days of stand-by time.
Overall, the Samsung Array could be suitable for the youngest crowd, or for people who mostly use a handset to text. Pricing is still unknown at this time, although a version of the device known as the Samsung Montage will be offered by Virgin Mobile for $50, indicating that the Array likely won't hurt anyone's budget either. The phone is currently listed as coming soon.
