For those who are looking to purchase another solid Android smartphone option from MetroPCS, then you will be pleased to learn about the new ZTE Anthem 4G.  Announced earlier today, the ZTE Anthem 4G is an Android 2.3 mid-range handset.

The Anthem 4G offers 4G LTE connectivity, as its name suggests, and features a 4.3 inch WVGA touch screen display.  Other specs include a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, Dolby Surround Audio, and HDMI output.  Unfortunately, the press release does not reveal the RAM, on board storage, or camera(s).  It is disappointing that the Anthem 4G only runs on Android 2.3, but hopefully an upgrade to Android 4.0 is in its future.

In terms of pricing and availability, the ZTE Anthem 4G will be available through MetroPCS in the coming weeks for $219 as an off-contract price.
