Samsung Craft, MetroPCS's first LTE phone, poses for a hazy photo shoot
The article has been updated on August 8, 2010.

MetroPCS seemed to be on the way to become the first carrier to officially out an LTE phone in the US,  after a Samsung Craft was spotted to clear the FCC hurdles. Now, a forumer who claims to be one of the chaps testing the Craft, obviously couldn't resist the temptation, and posted pictures of the dual-mode CDMA/LTE handset.

In line with what we have heard so far, this LTE specialty is said to be priced around $300. We did expect somewhat more rigid specs than a supposed 3.2MP camera, but, oh, well, at least it has a flash on the back. The front has the ubiquitous back button, but the rest of the typical Android keys are nowhere to be seen – neither on the front, nor on the physical QWERTY keyboard - so if this is indeed the Samsung Craft, it is definitely not running Android, but a typical TouchWiz 2.0 UI for dumbphones. Makes us wonder how on Earth will those LTE speeds be enjoyed.
