Samsung Galaxy Amp Prime 2 is Cricket's new cheap Android Nougat phone
The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ aren't the only new Samsung smartphones released in the US today. If the S8 series is too expensive for you, Cricket Wireless has another handset that you may want to check out: the Samsung Galaxy Amp Prime 2.

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.
