T-Mobile launches Samsung Galaxy Avant for $9/month or $216

As it announced previously, T-Mobile is today launching the new affordable Samsung Galaxy Avant. We previously detailed how the device could have remote unlocking capabilities providing users with the ability to temporarily or permanently lock the device to a carrier through a dedicated app. The app, which was said to be in testing, wasn’t mentioned in T-Mobile’s press release today.

The Samsung Galaxy Avant boasts a stylish, slim design housing a powerful Quad-Core 1.2 GHz processor, 1.5GB RAM, and a brilliant 4.5” qHD screen. Unique Samsung features further simplify the user experience, including Easy Mode to make the phone easier to navigate for first-time smartphone users, S Voice™ for convenient assistance in your daily life, and Samsung Smart Switch™ to make it even easier to transfer your content to your new device.

The Samsung Galaxy Avant is available at T-Mobile starting today for $0 down and $9/month on T-Mobile’s usual installment plan. That brings the full total price to $216.
