LG Brings LTE to MetroPCS with the Connect 4G
MetroPCS today announced the addition of the LG Connect 4G to its smartphone lineup. The LG Connect 4G can access MetroPCS's Long Term Evolution 4G network and includes a 4.0-inch Nova display with Gorilla Glass and a dual-core 1.2GHz processor. It has a 5-megapixel main camera with a flash, and 720p HD video capture, as well as a user-facing camera for video chats. The Connect 4G also includes Dolby Mobile for enhanced sound. The Connect 4G will be available from MetroPCS within the coming month, though pricing was not disclosed
The LG Connect 4G is designed to be a relatively affordable LTE phone for carriers like MetroPCS. While it's small in size and price, it's no slouch in features.
MetroPCS's latest LTE 4G smartphone comes from LG. The Connect 4G offers a decent spec list, but stumbles a a few times on the road to smartphone nirvana.
