The Samsung Replenish is Sprint's fourth eco-friendly handset. The phone's casing includes 34.6 percent post-consumer recycled plastic content and 82 percent of the phone is made from recyclable material.
The Samsung Replenish will be available on May 8 for a $49.99 with a two-year contract and is waiving the $10 monthly premium data add-on fee. The phone will also come in arctic blue (shown here) and raspberry pink; both of these models will ship in June.
Aside from the eco-friendly benefits, the Replenish offers a 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and runs Android 2.2.
The Samsung Replenish offers a touch screen, QWERTY keyboard combo. The QWERTY keyboard is slightly on the cramped side, even compared with a BlackBerry or the Motorola Droid Pro, but the keys are elevated and provide a nice tactile feedback.
The display measures 2.8 inches and has a QVGA (240x320-pixel) resolution. It's definitely not the sharpest screen, but we weren't expecting the latest display technology, considering the price.
In addition to being made of environmentally sensitive materials, the Replenish can also be outfitted with Sprint's Green ID pack. This custom skin provides access to green tips, environmental resources, and more.
