LG Spirit 4G available from MetroPCS

MetroPCS bring well-priced, decently-specced Android handsets to market, and we have a feeling that’s something potential and current subscribers certainly appreciate.

With today’s LG Spirit 4G launch, MetroPCS continues to expand its LTE-at-a-bargain ideals, announcing a smartphone that carries some pretty decent specs for being contract-free and costing a mere 269 bucks.


Naturally, the 4.5-inch, 960 x 540 display is among the Spirit’s main highlights, but there’s also an unspecified 1.2GHz, dual-core CPU, a 5-megapixel rear shooter capable of 1080p video, and Ice Cream Sandwich, to boot. The carrier’s quick to point out that its newly introduced slab is a follow-up to that LG Motion 4G we saw last year, and that it’s compatible with those LTE plans which were unveiled earlier this month.

It’s worth noting that while the LG Spirit 4G’s official MSRP is $269, MetroPCS will have it up for grabs, starting today, at the cheaper price of $199 — that, of course, after a beloved mail-in rebate and for “a limited time” only. You’ll find a couple more press shots after the break, and be sure to hit the source link if you’re interested in grabbing one of these for yourself.

It also houses a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash that’s capable of shooting 1080p HD video. On the front is a 1.3-megapixel camera for video chatting and vanity shots.

Powering the Spirit 4G is a 2,150mAh battery, which has a reported talk time of 4 hours and a standby time of 200 hours. Users will also get 4GB of internal storage, and up to 32GB of external memory.
