There are huge number of people out there who refuse to buy a new smartphone through a normal carrier because they get locked into contracts lasting years. That means that a lot of people prefer to purchase their smartphones from a prepaid carrier such as MetroPCS. Word surfaced today that a new smartphone from Samsung is headed to MetroPCS in time for the holiday season.
The smartphone is the Samsung Galaxy Mega featuring a 6.3-inch display. The data launch date for the phone is unknown as is the price, but sources say it will be there in time for holiday shopping. The Mega features a dual-core 1.7 GHz processor with 1.5 GB of RAM.
It comes in versions with 8 GB or 16 GB of storage. The phone also has a memory card slot for storage expansion, an eight-megapixel rear camera, and a 1.9-megapixel front camera. The smartphone runs Android 4.2.
