Sprint has finally made the release date and pricing of the upcoming Motorola Photon 4G official announcing that the dual-core, WiMax powered device will be available on July 31st for a grand total of $199 on a new two year contract.
It’s been just over a month since Sprint announced the Photon 4G alongside the Motorola Triumph and since then, the carrier has launched another popular WiMax smartphone, the HTC EVO 3D. What this means is that the Photon 4G is going to have some major competition when it arrives at the end of the month but as I’ve pointed out, it definitely brings some things to the table that are worth looking at.
There is a way to get the Photon 4G before its July 31st launch date. If you’re a Sprint Premier member, the phone will be available to you a day earlier on July 28th for the same price.
And just in case you needed a reminder about the specifications:
- Dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor with each core running at 1GHz and 1GB of RAM
