AT&T to sell $50 Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate starting June 10th

 ATT to Launch its First LTE Smartphone with Environmentally Conscious Features, the Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate

Dallas, Texas, June 05, 2012

Beginning June 10 ATT will offer a new option for customers looking for sustainable features in asmartphone – the Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate™.  The Exhilarate will be available in all ATT channels for $49.99 with a two-year agreement and is the first ATT 4G LTE smartphone to obtain UL Platinum certification.  This phone is also set to be one of the first to go through ATT’s eco-rating system, which will be unveiled later this summer.

ATT customers have access to the nation’s largest 4G network, covering more than 260 million people.  ATT has two 4G networks that work together for customers, LTE and HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul. That means ATT customers are able to enjoy a widespread, ultra-fast and consistent 4G experience on their compatible device as they move in and out of LTE areas.  With other carriers, when you travel outside of their LTE coverage area, you’re on a much slower 3G network.

The Exhilarate features a rear casing made from 80 percent recycled (post-consumer waste) material and is packaged with a low-load, energy-efficient charger that alerts customers when the device is fully charged. The device also boasts a 4-inch touchscreen Super AMOLED display, a dual core 1.2 GHz Scorpion processor, voice recognition and access to ATT U-verse® Live TV.  It also features a 5-megapixel auto-focus rear-facing camera that let’s you record videos in 720p HD and a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera.

In addition, the Exhilarate is the first 4G LTE smartphone to receive platinum certification from UL Environment, a business unit of UL (Underwriters Laboratories). Since 2011, ATT has joined UL Environment and other sustainability stakeholders in working towards the development of requirements to identify leading mobile phones from an environmental and human health perspective. UL Environment sets minimum requirements for “environmentally preferable” mobile devices by measuring environmentally sensitive materials, energy management, manufacturing and operations, impact to health and environment, product performance, packaging and product stewardship.

ATT will also offer two custom case options by Incipio. These ECO ® SILICRYLIC® cases are made from a combination of biodegradable and recycled materials.  Composed of two parts, an inner silicone rubber made of recycled silicone regrind material, and an outer bio resin plastic shell, ECO SILICRYLIC complements the environmentally conscious features of the smartphone it protects.

“ATT is committed to developing and supporting products, like the Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate, that enable consumers to reduce their environmental impact without sacrificing features or the ability to enjoy a world-class smartphone experience,” said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president, Devices, ATT Mobility. “We’re working hard every day to empower consumer choice and provide consumers with more options in-store as part of our ongoing commitment to sustainability.”
