LTE-capable Samsung Galaxy Avant reportedly headed to T-Mobile

@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.

Well, at least they upped the screen resolution a little...

And it's running KitKat with the latest version of Touchwiz, so it won't run too terribly. It's a decent lower mid range device. I just wish Samsung had a more consistent and unified device line up. They should just release their Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series everywhere instead of having tons of devices that are basically re-branded variants of the same phone. Galaxy S5, S5 Mini, and S5 Prime Galaxy Note 3, and Note 3 Neo. That should be it. High end, mid range, and premium smart phones, and high end and mid range phablets. Maybe they can add an entry level smartphone like the Moto E for emerging markets, but that should be the end of it. That's 6 devices that can be released everywhere and covers all bases. Updates would come more quickly to everyone, and they could reduce costs by producing more of a few models rather than producing less of more models.

Hello? Tmobile? Does Motorola exist to you at all? Everyone else knows about them. Pull your head out of your ass.
