Today, MetroPCS and Huawei announced their latest collaboration, the Huawei Premia 4G.
Powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the Huawei Premia 4G is the carrier's second smartphone to feature 4G LTE connectivity.
Hardware details include a 4-inch display, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, and a 5-megapixel camera. Falling somewhere between the ZTE Avid 4G and the LG Spirit 4G, the Premia 4G should appeal to first-time smartphone buyers.
While the handset does run an older version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich is still modern enough to hold its appeal. As an affordable smartphone capable of 4G data speeds, the Premia 4G features Joyn by MetroPCS, as well as access to Rhapsody Unlimited Music service.
The Huawei Premia 4G is available in stores and online beginning today for $149.99 and can be paired with rate plans starting at $40 per month.
