MetroPCS intros affordable Samsung Galaxy Admire 4G
MetroPCS has unveiled yet another new 4G LTE-capable smartphone: the Samsung Galaxy Admire 4G – which has similar characteristics to the Galaxy Ace Plus S7500 (released earlier this year in Europe and Asia).
Like the Samsung Admire that was launched in 2011 by MetroPCS, the Galaxy Admire 4G is an affordable device. It costs just $169.99, no contract needed. Feature-wise, the new handset offers a 3.65 inch display with 480 x 320 pixels, Mobile Hotspot, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3MP rear camera with flash, VGA front-facing camera, and a 1GHz single-core processor. It also comes with MetroPCS’ joyn service (which provides “an intuitive way to unify mobile-to-mobile communications” and “enriched services like integrated instant messaging or chat, WiFi and video calling, and simplified content sharing.”)
Sadly, the Admire 4G runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread at launch. MetroPCS didn’t say if it’s going to be updated to Ice Cream Sandwich or Jelly Bean. Anyway, if you want to buy the handset, you can go here at MetroPCS. It looks like the phone is offered in a white color version only.
Besides the Galaxy Admire 4G, MetroPCS is currently offering other 8 LTE smartphones: Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung Galaxy S Lightray 4G, LG Esteem, LG Connect, LG Motion, ZTE Anthem, Huawei Activa, and Coolpad Quattro. The most expensive among them is, of course, the Galaxy S III ($499), while the cheapest is the Coolpad Quattro ($79).
