MetroPCS launching the new Samsung Galaxy S Lightray 4G next month?

A new Samsung Galaxy handset with LTE connectivity is seemingly going to be released by MetroPCS in the US soon: the Galaxy S Lightray 4G. The device looks a lot like Verizon’s Samsung Droid Charge (introduced more than a year ago), as well as like Sprint’s unannounced Galaxy Reverb.

The Galaxy S Lightray 4G features a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED display, an 8MP rear camera with Flash, 1.3MP front-facing camera, mobile hotspot, HDMI, and a 16GB memory card pre-installed. It also appears to have a retractable antenna for Dyle TV – a mobile TV service unveiled by MetroPCS earlier this year. The processor inside the Lightray is a mystery for now.

Reportedly, the Galaxy S Lightray 4G will be released by MetroPCS in mid-August, and should become its second LTE-capable Samsung Galaxy, after the Galaxy Attain 4G. we don’t know what version of Android it’s going to run at launch, but let’s hope it will be 4.0 ICS.
