NET10 Samsung Galaxy S II is no longer a rumor. The carrier has confirmed it by adding it to its net10android.com website that serves for promoting upcoming NET10 Android phones. The phone uses AT&T HSPA+ network and will be available soon for $399.99.
NET10 Samsung Galaxy S II has fairly high-end specs even though it’s a year old version. New version, Samsung Galaxy S III, is also present for prepaid carriers. It’s been rumored for MetroPCS for somewhere “after September and before December” and announced for Ting (uses Sprint’s 4G LTE network), which already takes preorders.
NET10’s Galaxy S II comes with a dual core 1.2GHz processor, a 4.3-inch WVGA Super AMOLED display, rear 8-megapixel camera with auto focus, LED flash and full HD 1080p video capture and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera for making video calls. It also runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS, which is unfortunate since the latest Android version Jelly Bean is out while Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich turns into a standard for prepaid phones.
The Samsung Galaxy S II will be compatible with NET10’s $50 unlimited monthly plan that’s right now available for $45 per month if purchased online. The plan offers unlimited voice, text, picture messaging, email, data and 411 calls. In reality, there are limitations to unlimited, of course, similar to Straight Talk’s (2GB per month, 100MB per day). So, use everything in moderation to be on the safe side even though NET10 has no reports from users of their accounts being terminated without any warning.
It is also possible that Straight Talk adds Samsung Galaxy S II in near feature as well although there are no real indications except for those that both carriers are TracFone’s subsidiaries and already have offered same phones many times before.
