MetroPCS has officially announced their latest Android smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S Lightray 4G. The handset is, as the name would imply — compatible with the MetroPCS 4G LTE network. Other features of the Lightray 4G include the following;

  • 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus touchsceen
  • 1GHz processor
  • 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera
  • 8 megapixel rear-facing camera
  • microSD card slot
  • Ships with a 16GB memory card
  • Measurements: 5.11 x 2.66 x 0.46 inches
  • Weight: 4.87 ounces

One perk that comes along with the handset is the compatibility of the Dyle mobile TV application, which according to MetroPCS, makes this the “first phone in the U.S. to offer live local broadcast television on a smartphone.”

“Dyle mobile TV keeps consumers informed and entertained while on the go and allows them to watch local and national sports, news and entertainment broadcast programming on their mobile phones.”

Dyle TV will be available in select markets, of which you can check here. The good news, Dyle mobile TV will come with no additional expense. Simply put, MetroPCS is rolling Dyle TV into their regular monthly plans.

That all being said, the one disappointing part here — the version of Android. The Samsung Galaxy S Lightray 4G has arrived running Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Finally, the handset is available today and priced at a contract-free $459.00.
