We have recently disclosed that T-Mobile was poised to release the Samsung Galaxy J7 and the LG K10 smartphones on May 18.
While T-Mobile had not officially confirmed the release of the two budget Android Marshmallow-powered smartphones, leaked images of the internal documents from the carrier had set the rumor into motion.
The rumor turned out to be true, as on the specified date T-Mobile officially released the LG K10 and Samsung Galaxy J7 smartphones, along with the HTC 10. The trio of smartphones will boost T-Mobile's Android offering inventory.
The Samsung Galaxy J7's variant for T-Mobile is priced at $239.99 for the unlocked variant. Alternately, consumers can shell out $10 each month for two years. Remember this is the 2015 model of the Galaxy J7 and not the 2016 one, which we reported was recently released in India alongside the Galaxy J5.
The Galaxy J7 smartphone from Samsung sports a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels. Under the hood, the smartphone houses an octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor clocked at 1.5 GHz and 2 GB of RAM. The handset also boasts a 5-megapixel secondary camera for selfie lovers, as well as a 13-megapixel rear-facing one. It boasts 16 GB of on-board storage and comes pre-loaded with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It also has a microSD card slot to expand the device's memory to a maximum 128 GB.
The LG K10 smartphone is the cheapest of the three T-Mobile offerings. It is also the third LG smartphone launched by T-Mobile in the United States this year. Purchasing the smartphone outright will set consumers back by $164.99. Alternately, consumers can pay $6.88 each month for 24 months. Only the gold hue of the smartphone is up for grabs.
The budget LG smartphone sports a 5.3-inch HD screen with a resolution of 1,280 x 720p pixels. The handset is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, which is clocked at 1.27 GHz and 1.5 GB of RAM. The LG K10 has 16 GB of on-board memory, which is expandable to a maximum of 32 GB via a microSD card. Like the Galaxy J7, the LG smartphone also touts a 5-megapixel selfie camera. The primary camera is 8 megapixels. The smartphone comes pre-loaded with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
The T-Mobile HTC 10 also released on May 18 is available in silver. Purchasing the unlocked version of the device will cost consumers $679.99. Alternately, you can opt for the $28.34 per month for 24 months, $0 down plan. Purchasing the handset between May 18 to May 24 will get T-Mobile consumers some free goodies - the HTC Ice View Case and the Rapid Charger, which are worth $85 in total.
