The phone above very much resembles the Samsung Conquer 4G on Sprint announced back in August but don’t let the resemblance fool you though; the phone pictured seems to be MetroPCS’ own Samsung SCH-R940, codenamed Tikal.
As a variant of the Samsung Conquer, expect it to sport, just like its Sprint cousin, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 3.5-inch HVGA display, 3.2-megapixel camera, and a 1.3-megapixel webcam. It should be powered by Google’s Android 2.3 Gingerbread and, while the Sprint Conquer 4G has WiMAX support, the Tikal will offer 4G LTE connectivity-support. If the recently announced LG Esteem 4G LTE goes for $249 with slightly better specs, expect the Samsung SCH-R940 to be cheaper, hopefully below $200 like currently the Samsung Galaxy Indulge.
