US Cellular now has another 4G LTE handset available to customers, the Samsung Galaxy Metrix 4G. The Metrix 4G is now available online for $179 after a $100 mail-in rebate, but if you purchase the phone in an LTE capable market (or a market that will have LTE by the end of the year), then the device will only cost you $129. If don’t live in an LTE capable market, but live relatively close to one, it may be smart to take the quick drive and save yourself a quick $50. As for the specs of the phone, here’s what you can expect:
- A slide-out QWERTY keyboard
- A 1GHz processor
- A 4.0-inch touchscreen
- A 5MP rear-facing camera and camcorder
- A front-facing camera
While it’s no Samsung Galaxy S III, it’s still a more than capable device that will give you 4G LTE speeds. You can read the full press release after the break.
