[NEWS] Samsung’s Exhilarate $50 AT&T LTE phone hits the FCC
Samsung’s Exhilarate was first announced back at CES as AT&T’s first sub-$50 LTE phone. It also apparently meets a variety of sustainability and environmental standards, but the FCC wasn’t concerned about if it was made of bamboo when it shredded the handset for the public’s good. Our boys in blue lab coats were more preoccupied with the internals and despite the small on-contract cost of the device, it’s certainly packing some hardware. Beneath that 4-inch super AMOLED display are GSM, WCDMA, LTE Bands 4 and 17, HSPA, GSM, GPRS and EDGE modems as well as the GPS, NFC, Bluetooth and WiFi modules we expect all self-respecting handsets to carry. Given that this emerged from Washington this morning, we can imagine this to start arriving in stores very shortly.
