MetroPCS’ new marketing campaign is so awesomely ridiculous that we can’t help but love it. The emerging carrier has enlisted the help of acclaimed hip hop superstar Snoop Dogg to help introduce its new 4G smartphone, the Samsung Indulge. And in honor of MetroPCS’ glorious 4G LTE service, Snoop has “doubled down on his G’s.” That’s right, his name is now “Snoop Dogggg” — at least, that’s his new name for the purposes of this campaign. “It feels good to be working with MetroPCS and Samsung for the launch of the Galaxy Indulge,” said Snoop Dogggg in a statement. “I’m stepping it up to 4G’s so my phone can keep up with my demanding, always-connected lifestyle.” MetroPCS’ full press release can be found after the break along with a quick video shout out from Sir Snoop.

Remember that Samsung SCH-R910 we first told you about back in January? Well, it looks like the device has officially launched with a new name, the Samsung Galaxy Indulge. Metro has a placeholder page live on its website for the Indulge, and while there are no official pictures of what the device will look like, the handset’s SKU pretty much gives it away (SCHR910ZKAM). The site does confirm some of the specifications we provided to you last month: LTE and CDMA radios, Android 2.2, 1GHz Hummingbird processor, and a $399 price tag. Other specs listed include a 3.2 megapixel camera, 1,500mAh battery, and micro-SD card slot (with support for up to a 32GB card). Expect to see an official press release from MetroPCS go live in the very near future.
