AT&T has updated its portfolio with a few of the most awaited new Android devices of the moment – you can now get the HTC One Mini, the Moto X, as well as the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 from the carrier. Here are the details.
New AT&T Android Smartphones
HTC One Mini
The HTC One Mini, or the smaller version of one of the best Android devices at the time of this writing, is a 4.3 inch smartphone with a 720p screen resolution and makes the compromise of using polycarbonate in some places where its larger brother features aluminum.
It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU running at 1.4 GHz (with an Adreno 305 graphics chip), working together with 1 GB of DDR2, and runs Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 with HTC’s Sense interface on top. Internal memory is 16 GB.
It has an Ultrapixel camera on board, as well as Boom Sound speakers, so you can enjoy your music to the fullest.
Now for the most important thing – the price. With a new two-year contract, AT&T is offering the HTC One Mini for $99.99, and it’s available here.
The Moto X is also available on AT&T, but only in black and white models. The customization options — Moto Maker — which the company has promised and that will be AT&T-exclusive for a while are not yet available. The device can be controlled with your voice and has an active display, which can display notifications when the screen is locked. It has a 4.7 inch display, a 1.7 GHz dual-core CPU and 10 megapixel main camera. And there’s a 2 megapixel shooter on the front, too.
Both of these versions are available for $199.99 with a two-year contract.
Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3
Last, but certainly not least, is a smartphone that will impress with more its sheer size – which is 6.3 inches. However, the resolution is only 720p. This is basically a cheaper phone for users who want a big screen device — like Samsung’s own Note line.
It’s powered by a dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU at 1.7 GHz and 1.5 GB of RAM memory and 16 GB of internal storage. You can add also add more storage via a MicroSD card. The main camera is an 8 megapixel one, with the device running Android 4.2, with Samsung’s TouchWiz on top. The device is available for $149.99 with a two-year contract.
The holiday, err, I mean new smartphone season is coming up, and we’ll be seeing even more new models of Android devices for sure. Also, Apple, Microsoft, and who knows what other companies will be releasing new gadgets, and we’ll continue to cover the best of the best.
