Samsung Forte 4G LTE Phone Coming to MetroPCS?
Here’s another 4G LTE phone that was not part of the CES 2011 avalanche: Samsung Forte. This handset has a pretty interesting story and it’s supposed to be one and the same with the Samsung R190 model, pictured next to it below.
Samsung Hub is claiming that the two are not the same model, since Samsung Forte packs a sliding QWERTY keyboard, while R190 does not. Both run Android 2.2 and feature a 1GHz Hummingbird CPU, but the Samsung logo on the Forte is above, while the other model has it below the screen.
Also, the same R190 shows off the MetroPCS logo, while the other model does not and back to similarities, both handsets feature a 5MP camera, a microSD card slot and TouchWiz UI. We’ll probably have this story cleared once MetroPCS makes a price announcement for these units…
