MetroPCS' first LTE phone?
MetroPCS' first LTE phone? Boy Genius Report

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)

  • TouchWiz interface

  • 1GHz Hummingbird processor

  • 5-megapixel camera

  • micro-SD card slot

  • Pricing between $329 to $399 (no monthly contract)
