It looks like Boost Mobile isn't the only MVNO in town that's adding the Samsung Galaxy S III to its shelves this week. Virgin Mobile is now selling the Galaxy S III on its website for $399.99, just like fellow Sprint MVNO Boost.
Virgin's Galaxy S III is the white 16GB model and it comes packing support for Sprint's 4G LTE network, which is currently available in 88 markets. The remainder of the Virgin Galaxy S III's spec list is just like the Sprint variant's, meaning that buyers can expect a 4.8-inch 1280x720 Super AMOLED display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 8-megapixel rear camera, 1.9-megapixel front camera, microSD card slot and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean running beneath Samsung's TouchWiz overlay.
This Galaxy S III is compatible with Virgin Mobile's Beyond Talk Unlimited Data and Messaging plans, which include unlimited data (2.5GB of high-speed data per month) and messaging along with varying sizes of minute buckets. Customers can get 300 minutes for $35 per month, 1200 minutes for $45 or unlimited minutes for $55.
The Samsung Galaxy S III may be the one of the priciest handsets in Virgin Mobile's lineup, but it's also the most high-end and only the second with 4G LTE connectivity. That makes it a good option for Virgin customers that want the most bleeding edge smartphone that they can get on their operator.
