AT&T has announced pricing and avialability for a couple if their upcoming phones. For starters, the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 (which Samsung also announced would be headed to Sprint and US Cellular) will be headed our way August 23rd. AT&T claims it will be the first to carry the smartphone, so it’s safe to say Sprint’s and US Cellular’s won’t be out until later on in the year.
The Galaxy Mega 6.3 will cost users $150 if they’re willing to sign a new two-year contract agreement, though users can go the AT&T Next route to get it for just $24 per month.
For that, you’re getting a 6.3-inch 720p smartphone that has a 1.7GHz dual-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, and 8 megapixel camera, Android 4.2.2 with TouchWiz and more. It’s Samsung’s biggest phone yet (in terms of sheer size, anyway) so you might want to check it out in an AT&T store to see if it’s right for you.
AT&T has also announced that it would be the exclusive carrier for the HTC One Mini, and that the device would also launch August 23rd. You’ll be able to grab this one for $100 on a two-year contract or $21 per month for 24 months using AT&T Next.
The One Mini features Qualcomm’s dual-core Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.4GHz, and has a 4.3-inch 720p display. Despite having a smaller display, the One Mini is quite close to the original HTC One in size (thanks, in part, to that enlarged bezel on the top and bottom).
Go ahead and check these out in the videos above, and let us know if you are looking to pick one of these up. They might not be the best smartphones available, but you’ve gotta love having options.
