Kyocera Presto spotted at the FCC with MetroPCS frequencies on board

Kyocera Presto spotted at the FCC with MetroPCS frequencies on board
Another day, another upcoming handset spotted at the FCC. This time, we have come across the Kyocera Presto, a budget-friendly CDMA handset that you probably wouldn't care much about if it got dropped on the ground or ran over by a car.

Judging by the 1700/1900MHz frequencies that the Kyocera Presto supports, the cellphone is meant to run on MetroPCS' network, and its hardware specs are not something that one would be impressed with. What it has to offer, though, is 3G connectivity over the carrier's EvDO rev.A pipelines for the times when you feel like dowlnoading a ringtone, a video game, or you desperately need to check something on the web through the phone's presumably limited in functionality browser.

A peak at the Presto's internal shots reveals that inside the handset ticks a low-end Qualcomm QSC6055 chipset and right next to it we see a Hynix chip for data storage. The cellphone also has a Bluetooth radio, a basic camera with no flash, a 920 mAh battery, and what appears to be a microUSB port on its side.
