Samsung Galaxy Indulge appears on MetroPCS’ website; Android 2.2 and LTE in tow

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.

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.
