Samsung Galaxy Ring hits Virgin Mobile for $179.99

Samsung Galaxy Ring

One of the larger prepaid carriers in the US, Virgin Mobile offers a decent selection of phones for their no-contract plans. They recently announced the Samsung Galaxy S III 4G LTE, and now they’ve got another Samsung smartphone in the pipes: the Samsung Galaxy Ring. While it’s not a high-end phone, it’s no slouch either.

The Galaxy Ring packs a 4-inch display, 1.4GHz processor, 1GB RAM, 5-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, 4GB storage, microSD card slot and a 1,750mAh battery. On the software front, you’ll find Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI placed delicately atop.

The Galaxy Ring may not appeal much to you in the specs department, but it has a very wallet-friendly price tag of just $179.99. Since Virgin Mobile’s main focus is price, this could be a pretty good seller for people who want a decent smartphone at a low price. Bear in mind though, it only has support for Virgin Mobile’s 3G network.

Are any of you guys thinking about picking up a Galaxy Ring?
