A month ago, we showed you the first leaked shots of an upcoming 4G device, the Samsung R920, for MetroPCS. The device, as we have just learned, was actually the Samsung Conquer 4G, which is available in the U.S. on Sprint. Now MetroPCS is planning to launch it as the Samsung Galaxy S Lightray 4G, and the photo above is said to be what the device will look like upon launch. Still no words on when MetroPCS is planning to have said launch, but it’s expected to be sometime within the next month.
The Lightray 4G comes with a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 3.5-inch display, 3.2MP camera, a 1.3MP front-facing camera, and of course, 4G LTE connectivity. It’ll be running Gingerbread, and we wouldn’t expect an ICS update to such a mid-range device.
So, is anyone on MetroPCS planning to pick up the Lightray 4G when it drops? Perhaps as a birthday present for a loved one? Let us know by leaving a comment below!
