Boost Mobile's no-contract phone plans will be available with Samsung's new Galaxy S6 32GB flagship smartphone for new and existing customers starting on April 10.As Samsung's hotly awaited Galaxy S6 smartphone is released for sale on April 10, Boost Mobile customers will be able to buy one with no annual contract for $649.99. The new smartphone, and its flashier sibling, the Galaxy S6 Edge, will be released by Samsung that day and will also be available through the big four wireless carriers in the United States—AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless.
Boost Mobile customers can pre-register to ensure they can get a new Galaxy S6 32GB smartphone in its available Black Sapphire color on the launch day, according to the company.The improvements in the new S6 smartphones over the previous Galaxy S5 model are many, from a chassis made of aircraft-grade aluminum to a higher resolution 5.1-inch, quad HD Super AMOLED display (2,560-by-1,440 resolution for the S6 versus 1,920-by-1,080 for the S5) that has about 80 percent more pixels (577 pixels per inch) than the S5. Corning Gorilla Glass 4 is used on both the front display and rear panel of the phones. The new Galaxy S6 models also include Samsung's latest 14nm technology, 64-bit Exynos 7 processors, which have eight cores and use less power while providing higher performance than previous chips made with 20nm manufacturing processes. Android 5.0 Lollipop is running on both devices. Like the previous Galaxy S5, the new S6 models offer a 16-megapixel rear camera, but the latest versions add Smart Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), a 1.9 f lens and automatic real-time High Dynamic Range (HDR) processing for improved picture quality in low light and other conditions. The 5MP front camera of the new Galaxy phones is also improved, with a 1.9 f lens, HDR, new white balance detection for improved images and other improvements that let users get better "selfies" when using the camera. Plus, fast-tracking auto-focus is now featured on the new S6 models. The Galaxy S6 includes a 2,550mAh nonremovable battery, and audio quality is improved over the earlier S5 model, with a speaker that provides sound that is up to 1.5 times louder than the previous-generation audio system in the older devices.
