LTE-capable Samsung Galaxy Avant reportedly headed to T-Mobile
T-Mobile may soon release a new (and likely affordable) LTE smartphone made by Samsung. The handset is called Samsung Galaxy Avant - model number SM-G386 - and appears to be T-Mobile’s version of the Galaxy Core LTE that was launched in some markets back in February.

@evleaks has press renders showing the Galaxy Avant, though he didn’t provide details on the smartphone’s features. Even so, we assume that this isn’t too different from the Galaxy Core LTE (it even has the same faux-leather back cover). The upcoming handset will probably offer a 4.5-inch display with 540 x 960 pixels, 5MP rear camera, dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of expandable internal memory. It seems that the Avant will run Android 4.4 KitKat at launch (unlike the Galaxy Core LTE, which was released running Jelly Bean).

The date visible on the smartphone’s home screen (July 28) may be an indication on when we should expect T-Mobile to start selling it. 

Another new Samsung device that’s reportedly headed to T-Mobile is the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 LTE. Perhaps the carrier will introduce both the Avant and the Tab Pro 8.4 at the same time? We’ll be here to let you know if that happens.
