Hot on the heels of its launch of the Samsung Galaxy S III 4G LTE, Virgin Mobile today added another Galaxy handset to its lineup. Dubbed the Samsung Galaxy Ring, the new device is a bit more affordable than its Galaxy S III sibling, coming in at just $179.99 without a contract.
Along with having one of the most appropriate "Galaxy" names in Samsung's Android-powered roster, the Galaxy Ring includes a 4-inch display, 1.4GHz processor, 5-megapixel rear and 1.3-megapixel front cameras, 4GB storage, microSD card slot and 1GB RAM. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean comes preloaded on the Galaxy Ring, and there's also a 1,750mAh battery powering the whole package.
While the Galaxy Ring is obviously a bit of a step down from the Galaxy S III in terms of specs, its feature set still seems respectable, and its price tag is also $120 lower. Meanwhile, the fact that the Galaxy Ring comes with Android 4.1 preinstalled helps it to stand out among the multitude of other 3G-only Android handsets in Virgin's lineup. Both the Galaxy Ring and its big "Add to Cart" button are waiting for you at the link below.
