MetroPCS to launch the Galaxy On5 in the US on June 27


If a leaked pricing grid shared by PocketNow is anything to go by, it looks like MetroPCS, T-Mobile’s prepaid subsidiary, is preparing to bring the Galaxy On5 to the United States. At present the handset, which made its debut back in October 2015, is only available in the Asian market, but the carrier appears to believe there’s a strong demand for a budget-friendly 5-inch smartphone in its home region as it will be adding the device to its lineup on Monday, June 27 where it’ll be available to purchase for just $60.

Don’t be put off by the Galaxy On5′s low price tag, though. It’s still a capable handset, and we’d recommend it for anyone who doesn’t need a phone sporting the latest and greatest specifications. Under the hood, it packs a 1.3GHz in-house Exynos 3475 quad-core processor, a Mali-T720 GPU, 1.5GB of RAM, an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 5MP selfie snapper and a 2,600mAh removable Li-Ion battery that’ll last for around 15-hours of intermediate use on a stable 3G/4G cellular connection.
