The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime is ready to join Sprint's lineup in a couple of days, set to go on sale on July 10.
The carrier has several pricing options in place for the Galaxy Grand Prime, offering the handset on contract, with monthly installments, or contract-free at full retail price.
The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime comes with mid-range specs and features all around, aiming to provide a good experience at a budget-friendly price point.
"Every year, parents across the country head to stores looking to get their kids a high-quality smartphone their friends will envy at an affordable price," touts Doug Kaufman, Sprint's Director of Device Strategy.
"Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime and the Sprint Family Share Pack make it possible for parents to give their kids a premium smartphone and enough high-speed data for the entire family without breaking the bank."
As a reminder, the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime sports a 5-inch TFT screen with a modest resolution of 960 x 540 pixels (220 ppi) and packs a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor running at 1.2GHz, paired with an Adreno 306 graphics processing unit (GPU) and 1GB of RAM.
Other specs include 8GB of built-in storage space, microSD support for additional storage of up to 128GB, an 8-megapixel main camera, a 5-megapixel selfie shooter, and a 2,600 mAh battery. The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime also features the Ultra Power Saving Mode, which is designed to shut down unnecessary apps when the phone's battery drops to 10 percent, providing an extra 24 hours for calls and messages.
The handset comes with Android 5.1 Lollipop on board out of the box.
As previously mentioned, Sprint will start selling the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime on Friday, July 10. The handset will cost $0 down, followed by $10 per month for 24 months for well-qualified Sprint customers who sign up for a service plan. Sprint will also be offering the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime on a two-year service agreement for $29.99, after a $50 mail-in rebate. Lastly, interested customers who don't want to commit to a contract nor purchase the device in installments can buy the smartphone outright for $240.
Sprint will offer the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime on its website, in physical retail locations and through telesales.
