T-Mobile releases two budget Samsung smartphones, equips one with 4G

Between the handset and the data plan, getting a 4G smartphone is usually quite expensive. Fortunately for us budget-mindful users, Samsung and T-Mobile have just announced the Samsung Exhibit 4G, a 4G smartphone with a reasonable price tag. For those of us who live in a city not graced with T-Mobile 4G or prefer a hardware keyboard, a 3G only companion device called the Gravity Smart was also introduced. 

Priced at only $79.99 with contract, the Exhibit 4G (shown on the right) still packs respectable hardware. Behind the 3.7 in. 800×480 AMOLED display you will find a Samsung 1GHz processor and 512 MB of RAM, which should be plenty of power for normal use. Although the rear camera on the device only shoots at 3MP, Samsung also included a 0.3 MP front facing camera for video chat. Surprisingly, the Exhibit also ships with Touchwhiz on top of Android 2.3 Gingerbread, the latest Android version for phones.

The Gravity Smart brings slightly less impressive, although still reasonable, specs to the table. Keeping in mind that the device will only set you back $29.99, its 3.2 in. display, 3 MP camera, and 800 MHz processor are quite adequate. Unfortunately, the Gravity Smart did not get the bump to 2.3 Gingerbread, and will ship with Android 2.2 Froyo.

Even though these devices are not premium products, they are solid offerings by Samsung. The Gravity Smart should please users who want to discover Android cheaply, while the Exhibit 4G will offer  a little more power for those who need it, along with 4G as a nice bonus. If you have been waiting for a good budget handset, you can grab one of these devices when they are released later this June.
