Specs:

  • 4" display
  • 1.4GHz single-core processor
  • 768MB RAM
  • 5MP rear shooter
  • 122.40mm x 64.20mm x 11.40mm, 128.7g
  • Android 4.0

While those specs are mediocre compared to the flagship phones of today, it's hard to deny the allure of a device that goes for $249 without contract on a carrier that offers equally as affordable plans.

The Galaxy Reverb is available for pre-order now with an expected ship date of 9/19; you can get yours in by heading right here.
