Samsung SCH-R910 to be MetroPCS’s First LTE Device?

We’ve found some shots of a new Samsung device that’s rumored to be headed to MetroPCS. The only name we have to go on at the moment is the model number, SCH-R910. It’s essentially another Galaxy S phone, with a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, TouchWiz, and a micro SD card slot. There are a few exceptions: it runs Froyo, and it has CDMA and LTE radios. This would be the first LTE device for MetroPCS, and it’s not too bad of a start. It’s rumored to be released sometime in Q1 contract-free at around $329 to $399.

So, a Galaxy S with Froyo (and TouchWiz, of course) and LTE capabilities. Did MetroPCS just one-up Verizon? We’ll let you be the judge of that. We’ll see if we can’t find some more infoAnyone else excited to see MetroPCS stepping it up?

    I own a Samsung Genoa(Corby) and it looks the same as this but with different software and other features of course. In terms of mobile phones I highly regard Samsung.
