Details of a new Android phone by Samsung, called the Samsung Replenish, were leaked through Sprint’s website a week back. Today, Sprint announced the new Samsung Replenish officially.
The Samsung Replenish is the world’s first eco-friendly, green Android smartphone. It is built using recycled plastic and can be charged using a solar charging battery cover.
In terms of form factor, it is similar to the Motorola Droid Pro. It comes with a 2.8 inch QVGA capacitive touchscreen display with a QWERTY keyboard. It runs Android 2.2 Froyo and has a 600 MHz Qualcomm processor and 256 MB RAM. It also has a 512 MB internal ROM and is powered by a 1160 mAh battery. It also comes with the basics – Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS etc.
It is priced quite low at just $49.99 with a two year contract. The hardware specs are definitely not mind-blowing, but it seems to be a decent device if you want a cheap, QWERTY Android phone.
We are excited to expand our portfolio of eco-friendly devices to now include the Samsung Replenish with Sprint, Samsung’s first Android-powered eco-friendly phonesaid Dale Sohn, president of Samsung Telecommunications America. The Replenish offers an impressive feature set with hardware made from recycled materials and eco-centric packaging, giving customers the option to have an eco-friendly phone without having to compromise features and functionality.
