Affordable Samsung Galaxy Avant officially launched by T-Mobile
Just as expected, T-Mobile today officially released the Samsung Galaxy Avant, a new mid- to low-end smartphone that’s offered at a low price. T-Mobile is selling the Avant for $216 outright, or for $0 upfront and $9 per month for two years.

The Galaxy Avant is a slightly improved version of Samsung’s Galaxy Core LTE, which was released in other markets earlier this year. The Avant runs Android 4.4 KitKat, and comes with an “Easy Mode” that should allow first-time smartphone users to quickly accommodate with the device. The new smartphone further features a 4.5-inch display with 540 x 960 pixels, LTE, NFC, a 5MP rear camera with LED flash, front-facing camera, 1GB of RAM, and a quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz. There’s 16GB of onboard memory which can be expanded via microSD.

T-Mobile didn’t say anything about the rumored Remote Unlock capabilities that should have debuted on the Galaxy Avant, so the handset doesn’t seem to include them for now. Anyway, the new Samsung smartphone is available to purchase both online, and in T-Mobile stores nationwide. It looks like you can buy the Avant only in black (there’s no word on other possible color versions).
