MetroPCS announces the Activa 4G, Huawei’s first LTE Android smartphone for the US
MetroPCS has announced a new LTE smartphone: the Huawei Activa 4G, which is available starting today, coming as Huawei’s first LTE-capable handset made for the US market.
Despite featuring 4G connectivity, the Activa is an entry-level smartphone. It offers a 3.5 inch HVGA display, Wi-Fi, stereo Bluetooth, 800MHz single-core processor, 5MP rear camera with LED flash, VGA front-facing camera, 1,880 mAh battery, and a 4GB MicroSD card pre-loaded with Kung Fu Panda 2. The handset runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and there’s no word if it’s ever going to get Android 4.0 ICS (probably not).
For a limited time, the Huawei Activa 4G will cost just $149 (plus tax, following mail-in and instant rebate). At this price, the Activa 4G is the cheapest LTE handset you can get in the US without contract. You can buy the new smartphone either online, or in MetroPCS stores across the US.
The Huawei Activa 4G is the fourth LTE Android smartphone available at MetroPCS at the moment, alongside the LG Esteem, LG Connect 4G, and Samsung Galaxy Attain 4G.
