Samsung Galaxy Amp Prime 2 is Cricket's new cheap Android Nougat phone
Obviously succeeding the original Galaxy Amp Prime from 2016, the Amp Prime 2 seems to be a rebranded Galaxy J3 Emerge (launched by Sprint and its prepay brands earlier this year). Fortunately, unlike the J3 Emerge, the Galaxy Amp Prime 2 runs Android 7 Nougat, not Android 6 Marshmallow, out of the box.
Sporting a 5-inch 720p display, the Samsung Galaxy Amp Prime 2 is powered by a quad-core processor (seemingly a Snapdragon 430), further featuring 1.5 GB of RAM, 16 GB of expandable storage space, and a 2600 mAh battery. The handset also comes with LTE connectivity, a 5 MP rear camera, and a 2 MP front-facing camera.
The Samsung Galaxy Amp Prime 2 is available starting today from Cricket for $149.99 with activation (no contract required). Oh, and the Galaxy S8 can be bought as of now via Cricket, too, but it'll cost you $699.
