Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime launches in the US via Cricket, costs just $179.99
Cricket Wireless today released a new Samsung smartphone that won't break the bank: the Galaxy Grand Prime, a device that's been available in Asia since last year.

Customers can buy the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime from Cricket for $179.99, no contract required. The highlight features of the new handset include LTE connectivity, an 8 MP rear camera with LED flash, and a 5 MP wide-angle lens front-facing camera. The smartphone also comes with a 5.0-inch, 540 x 960 pixels display, a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, 1 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of expandable internal memory.

Measuring 5.70 x 2.84 x 0.34 inches (144.8 x 72.1 x 8.6 mm) and weighing 5.50 oz (156 grams), the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime includes a 2600 mAh battery.

Right now, the Galaxy Grand Prime runs Android 4.4 KitKat, and we don't know when (or if) it's going to be updated to Android Lollipop. It looks like the device is available only in white. Any takers?
