Samsung Galaxy Avant to bring Remote Unlock capabilities to T-Mobile on July 30
Las month, we told you about a new (and yet to be announced) Samsung smartphone that was supposed to be released in the US by T-Mobile. Samsung Galaxy Avant is the name of the handset, and it looks like it’s going to be available at T-Mobile starting July 30.

According to an internal document received by TmoNews, that’s the day when the Galaxy Avant will be released by T-Mobile via all channels. The most interesting thing about the Avant is that it will be the first handset to offer Remote Device Unlock - a feature which, as previously reported, should allow you to unlock the phone and use it with another carrier.

As we assumed in June, the Avant is T-Mobile’s version of the Samsung Galaxy Core LTE. The only difference that we’re noticing when it comes to specs is that the upcoming handset features a quad-core 1.2GHz processor, while the Core LTE has a dual-core 1.2GHz CPU (both made by Qualcomm). Other than that, you get a 4.5-inch qHD display, LTE connectivity, 5MP rear camera, 1GB of RAM, and expandable internal memory. We don’t know how much T-Mobile will ask for the Samsung Galaxy Avant, but the device should be pretty cheap.

probably around $240 like its current Samsung Galaxy Light. Though at this time I would say the LG Optimus L90 seems to be a much better deal (only $99.60), with the same Snapdragon 400 quad-1.2ghz and same screen resolution, and a little bigger display. Though the L90 has no LTE... and no NFC.

Looks almost the ATIV S Neo's twin! Which I snagged a great deal on the AT&T version from good ole Ebay. So many Android's coming out.. But I am really like WP again & 8.1 makes it so much better!

Stay glue to Apple articles or just pass incognito. You don't have to speak all the time.

All Samsung Galaxy phones look almost the same (shape style). And they already are so many. Guys with no info background can be easy fooled. Time to change for Samsung. Last train.
