Other than the Samsung Restore to be released by Virgin Mobile USA, Sprint is also launching another eco-friendly mobile phone, the Samsung Replenish, that is partially built with recycled plastics and recyclable packaging. The phone has a casing with 34.6 percent post-consumer recycled plastic content and 82 percent of the device is made from recyclable materials.
The Samsung Replenish is a bar-type Android smartphone with QWERTY keyboard. It has a 2.8-inch QVGA touchscreen, a 2 Megapixel camera with video recorder, built-in GPS, Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity and a microSD card slot. The QWERTY phone is powered by a Qualcomm MSM7627 600MHz processor with 256MB RAM and 512MB ROM. It runs Android 2.2 Froyo.
Sprint will release the Samsung Replenish on 8 May for $49.99 with a two-year service agreement. It comes in Onyx Black, Arctic Blue and Raspberry Pink.
