Galaxy S II 4G, Galaxy Rush, Array coming to Boost Mobile

Boost Mobile announced today that it would be adding three new handsets to its lineup: Samsung's Galaxy S II 4G, Galaxy Rush, and Array smartphones. The new devices will be available beginning in September. All will be compatible with Boost's Monthly Unlimited Plans, as well as the carrier's Shrinking Payments feature.

The announcement marks the first time that the Galaxy S II 4G has appeared on a no-contract carrier. The S II 4G, a variant of last year's flagship Samsung smartphone, has a 4.52-inch Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen, 8MP rear-facing camera, 2MP front-facing camera, and a 1.2GHz dual-core Exynos processor. It has 16GB of internal memory, and it runs Android 4.0, though an upgrade to Android 4.1 is expected in the coming months. The Galaxy S II 4G will go on sale on September 6 for $370.

The Galaxy Rush, available in late September, has a 3.5-inch touchscreen, 3MP rear-facing camera, and 1.3MP front-facing camera. The Galaxy Rush will be available at Boost Mobile's retail stores and at select independent wireless dealer locations for $150.

The Samsung Array, available on September 4, bears a slide-out hardware QWERTY keyboard and web-browsing capability. It packs a 2.4-inch LCD screen, and comes with a 2MP camera. The Array will be available on Boost Mobile's $45 Talk & Text Unlimited Plan with Shrinking Payments. The phone will retail for $60.
