MetroPCS to gain Samsung Galaxy S Lightray 4G
If you are one of the Android faithful over in the US of A, and your preferred carrier happens to be MetroPCS, the word is the carrier will be releasing a new Android smartphone soon, in the form of the Samsung SCH-R940, otherwise known as the Samsung Galaxy S Lightray 4G handset.
According to an article over on Ubergizmo by way of Phone Arena, the guys over at Howard Forums have leaked several photos and details of the MetroPCS Samsung Galaxy S Lightray 4G handset, and if this new smartphone looks a bit familiar it is because it resembles the Verizon Samsung Droid Charge.
So what does this new Sammy smartphone offer the MetroPCS customer? Well apparently that handset sports a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus touch screen along with an 8 megapixel rear facing camera with LED flash, a 1.3 megapixel front facing camera, HDMI-out, Mobile Hotspot capability, and a 16GB SD memory card, which means the Android handset obviously sports a microSD slot, and apparently is an Android 2.3 Gingerbread device.
Apparently documents with the FCC (Federal Communication Commission) show that the Samsung Galaxy S Lightray 4G does indeed support 4G LTE functionality, as one would expect.
As for just when MetroPCS customers can get their hands on the Galaxy S Lightray 4G, the word is the device will be hitting MetroPCS shelves in the middle of next month, but just how much the smartphone will hit the pocket for remains a mystery at this time, but as soon as we hear we will of course pass it along.
