It hasn’t been long since T-Mobile acquired MetroPCS. According to a new report two T-Mobile branded smartphones are coming over to MetroPCS, these include the LG Optimus L9 and the Samsung Galaxy Exhibit. The report also mentions that from 12th June MetroPCS is going to start a BYOP or Bring-Your-Own-Phone service. Basically they’ll allow new subscribers to bring their own GSM devices on this pre-paid carrier. The BYOP service will not be compatible with any BlackBerry devices, but it will support Windows Phone and Android devices, as well as the iPhone.
T-Mobile introduced the LG Optimus L9 on its network late last year. The smartphone has a 4.5 inch display, 1GHz dualcore processor, 4GB internal storage and 1GB of RAM. The Galaxy Exhibit is actually Galaxy S 3 mini, the only difference is in the branding. It has a 1GHz processor, 16GB of internal storage and 1GB of RAM, powered by Android 4.1.2 with TouchWiz slapped on top. The report claims that their tipster has not provided any pricing information, the purported leaked internal “cheat sheet” images that they received also do not mention pricing.
