The Samsung Galaxy Ring is available for £83.50 and it is designed for the Virgin Mobile. The Samsung Prevail 2 is intended for the Boost Mobile and users can get it for only £96.50. Except for difference in color, both devices are virtually identical.
The Prevail 2 and the Ring are fairly low-cost devices by today’s standards. They are powered by 1.4GHz single-core processor and run Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) OS. As a comparison, the dual-core and LTE-capable LG Optimus F3 is now also available in Virgin Mobile’s network for only £116. It is not yet known whether both prepaid phone deals will be available nationwide or just in specific cities. So far, both devices are only available in Walmart store in Sacramento California.
