Cricket launches its own smartphone brand, first device costs less than $100
Cricket Wireless has just announced it's first own-brand smartphone, the Icon. The device is made by Emblem Solutions, a rather new wireless device supplier that makes phones exclusively to AT&T and Cricket customers.

The Icon is a very cheap handset, which customers can now pick up for just $80. It runs Android 9.0 Go Edition and it's the first smartphone from Cricket that comes with a 2-year warranty, double the standard warranty period in the United State. Moreover, customers who buy the Icon will be eligible for a device exchange-by-mail while the phone is under warranty.

As far as the specs go, the Icon is quite decent considering its less than $100 outright price. The budget-friendly smartphone sports a 5.5-inch display with Dragontrail glass, a 5-megapixel main camera, and a secondary 2-megapixel selfie snapper.

The phone is equipped with a 1.5GHz quad-core MediaTek processor, 16GB expandable storage (up to 64GB), and a 2,500 mAh battery. The Icon features 4G LTE, HD Voice, and Mobile Hotspot support.
