Good news for AT&T customers, as the carrier’s product line just got a little bit more diverse with the inclusion of the HTC One Mini, the Samsung Galaxy Mega, and the Moto X. All three premier smartphones are now available for consumer purchase starting today.
Users looking for high-end design at an affordable price may be interested in the HTC One Mini, which features a similar metallic casing design to HTC’s flagship handset the HTC One, but with slightly toned down specs. The 4.3-inch handset offers a 720p resolution display, a 1.4 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 4MP rear-facing “UltraPixel” camera, and the device runs on Android 4.2. The HTC One Mini is currently available at AT&T retailers and online for $100 with a two-year contract.
Even in the age of large smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy Mega stands out with its exceptionally large 6.3-inch, 1280 x 720 resolution display. The device serves as a relatively low-end alternative to Samsung’s popular Galaxy Note line, for those that want a large screen without the large price tag. The Mega features a 1.7 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage with microSD support, a large 3,200mAH battery and will run on Android 4.2 with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI. The Samsung Galaxy Mega is now available at AT&T for $150 with a two-year contract or $480 unsubsidized.
Google and Motorola’s joint venture is the last handset of the trio. The 4.7-inch Moto X boasts a wide selection of colors, though users looking to get the full range of choices will have to buy the handset online; only the black and white variants are available from brick-and-mortar stores. The handset comes equipped with a 1280 x 720 AMOLED display, a 1.7 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 16GB of internal storage (along with a 32GB option) and a 10MP rear-facing camera. The Moto X is available for purchase starting at $200 with a two-year contract. AT&T is also offering a one-year contract, but that greatly raises the cost of the handset to $450, and users looking to totally get away from the restraints of a contract can purchase the device outright for $580. The handset is also available through AT&T’s Next Installment plan for $27 a month for 20 months.
