Today Boost Mobile, one of Sprint’s prepaid brands, has added a new cheap smartphone to its roster. It’s called LG Tribute 5, but it’s actually just the recently announced K7 with a different name. The new K series is supposed to bring decent design and specs to very low price points according to LG.
The Tribute 5 comes with a 5-inch 480×854 IPS touchscreen, a couple of 5 MP cameras (one on the front, one on the back), Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 210 chipset running the show (with a 1.1 GHz quad-core CPU), 1GB of RAM, 8GB of expandable storage, 4G LTE support, and a 2,125 mAh battery. It runs Android 5.1 Lollipop.
You can pick one up straight from Boost Mobile for only $99.99, and since this is a prepaid carrier there’s no need to sign a long-term contract. You can pair it with a plan that gives you unlimited talk and text as well as at least 2GB of data, starting at $30 per month.
