Today LG has officially announced their new higher end Android smartphone for MetroPCS. This may not be a top tier high end smartphone, but for MetroPCS it’s one of the best they have to offer and is available now. Earlier last week the LG Esteem was first leaked online and it spilled the beans on all the details and specs including Gingerbread, and 4G LTE.
The hardware specs are nicely rounded off with a 4.3″ WVGA display, 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 512MB of RAM, and a 5 megapixel camera on the rear with LED flash. The Esteem will also offer a 1.3 MP camera for chatting up front, 8GB internal storage with micro-SD support, and even comes with micro-HDMI out as well. A nice well equipped smartphone if you ask me. If you didn’t know this is basically the LG Revolution, but for MetroPCS.
That’s not all either, we also have Android 2.3 Gingerbread and 4G LTE on board making this the best smartphone offered by MetroPCS. With 4G LTE smartphone plans starting at just $40 dollars this makes a great alternative to other options in the 4G LTE realm. Available right now Metro’s offering the Esteem for $250 with no contract (with a mail in rebate sadly). Along with the purchase users will get Rhapsody unlimited free for 90 days as an added bonus.
