Today, mobile phone carrier MetroPCS has announced the upcoming availability of a new handset on its network, the Samsung Galaxy S Lightray 4G.
The new device arrives on shelves with support for 4G LTE connectivity, as well as with Google’s Android
operating system on board.
Moreover, this is the first Galaxy S device for MetroPCS, capable of providing users with fast Internet browsing capabilities, as well as with fast downloading and streaming of videos and other content.
The new device has already been made available for purchase at the wireless carrier, with a price tag of $459 (plus tax) attached to it. Users can grab it without committing to a contract agreement, while enjoying the operator’s service for $40 per month.
Samsung Galaxy S Lightray 4G is also being launched as the very first smartphone in the United States to provide users with access to live, local broadcast television via Dyle mobile TV.
“Dyle mobile TV keeps consumers informed and entertained while on the go and allows them to watch local and national sports, news and entertainment broadcast programming on their mobile phones,” the wireless carrier notes.
“Access to the Dyle mobile TV service will be offered in select markets and at no additional charge to customers on a MetroPCS 4G LTE service plan.”
The new mobile phone
lands on shelves with a 1GHz processor inside, a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen display, and Google’s Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system.
On the back, it sports an 8-megapixel photo snapper with LED flash, complemented by a 1.3MP camera on the front, great for making video calls.
It also arrives with 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot, so that users can share a connection with multiple Wi-Fi-enabled devices. The new Android mobile phone can be seen on the wireless carrier’s website via this link
