Images of MetroPCS’ first LTE, Android smartphone surface; Samsung SCH-R910

A new source has come forward with an image of what we believe to be MetroPCS’ first LTE-capable, Android smartphone — the Samsung SCH-R910. The device, which sports both a CDMA and LTE radio, will run the Android 2.2 (Froyo) operating system alongside Samsung’s TouchWiz interface. We’re being told that the device will boast a 1GHz Hummingbird processor and 5 megapixel camera — just like the Galaxy S — and will have a user-accessible micro-SD card slot under the battery cover; at this point, memory and on-board storage specs are still unknown. Expect to see the R910 drop on MetroPCS in Q1 with a snazzy new nickname and a contract-free price-point between $329 to $399.

Thanks, S. Mango!
