As the race for carriers and phone manufacturers surges to push out LTE 4G-enabled phones of the likes that poured from CES last week, we've seen some rumors that Samsung is prepping to release a new LTE phone with MetroPCS.
The photos of the phone information clearly show that the phone is the Samsung SCH-R910 running LTE (look under Baseband version.) It also appears to run
Android 2.2 (Froyo; look under Firmware version.)
If that's the case, the Samsung SCH-R910 would be MetroPCS' first LTE smartphone, after the regional, contract-free carrier released the Samsung Craft, a feature phone, in early October.
Here are the rumored specs and pricing details. Samsung was not immediately available for comment or confirmation.
CDMA and LTE
Android 2.2 (Froyo)
1GHz Hummingbird processor
micro-SD card slot
Pricing between $329 to $399 (no monthly contract)
