Virgin Mobile has announced that its customers can now get their hands on the Galaxy S II 4G, the predecessor to the wildly popular Galaxy S III smartphone. With this new addition, users can finally get 4G access on the Virgin Mobile network starting at $35 per month. This comes after repeat requests from users who asked for better phone options, as well as 4G.

The Galaxy S II 4G is now available in Titanium in addition to white. The handset is priced at $369.99, and can be used as a mobile hotspot for an additional $15 per month. You can nab the Virgin Mobile version of the Galaxy S II 4G from the carrier itself or from a retail store; you'll have to head over to Radio Shack, however, if you want the Titanium version.

Virgin Mobile USA's Director Mark Lederman offered this statement. "[The] Samsung Galaxy S II adds tremendous value to Virgin Mobile’s all-smartphone lineup. Coupled with our affordable unlimited data & messaging plans starting at just $35 per month, this is an ideal package for those who think they have to go to postpaid carriers for the hottest devices and to save money."

The Galaxy S II 4G features a 4.52-inch Super AMOLED Plus display. Inside you'll find a 1.2GHz dual-core Exynos processor. There's an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front camera, as well as a microSD card expansion slot that supports up to 32GB. The handset features Bluetooth 3.0 and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. You can check out our review of the device here.
