MetroPCS Hints a Samsung Galaxy S4 Announcement Coming Next Week


Today on Twitter, MetroPCS posted a tweet reading "We've got a huge announcement coming next week. Can you guess what it is? #Samsung #Android #MetroPCS". There's a Vine short video (above) embedded in the tweet. The video shows a picture of a Samsung Galaxy S3 followed by a plus sign, a one, an equals sign and a question mark which if you put it together says "Galaxy S3 + 1 = ?". The logical conclusion is "Samsung Galaxy S4" meaning that Metro is announcing Samsung's latest flagship next week.

Engadget thinks the MetroPCS S4 will be a CDMA/LTE phone running on MetroPCS' legacy network. I sure hope they are wrong. MetroPCS overlord T-Mobile plans to shut down the old MetroPCS network in mid-2015. Announcing what's rumored to be a $549 phone that will be largely unusable in two years would be a huge mistake.  I'm pretty sure the Metro S4 will be a rebranded T-Mobile GSM/LTE S4 that will work for many years to come.

It's probably significant that MetroPCS says they are announcing rather than releasing the phone next week. The actual release could be weeks away. I wouldn't be surprised if the S4 launch coincides with MetroPCS announcing that GSM phones and SIMs, which are currently only sold in four markets, will be available nationwide.

  1. What have They not taken 5th grade math?! S3 is a 3 and S being multiplied together, meaning 3 has a variable, which 1 does not, so S3+1 does not equal S4. If it was S3+S then it would equal S4.

    1. First of all that would just be represented as S*3+1. If you had S(3 + 1) then you get S3 + S = 4S or S4 depending on the way you like to write it.

  2. "S3 is a 3 and S being multiplied together, meaning 3 has a variable, which 1 does not, so S3+1 does not equal S4. If it was S3+S then it would equal S4."

    That is not always true. In basic algebra, S3 could also be interpreted as "S" being a ten-value number. If S = 7, then S3 would be 73. In this regards S3 + 1 equals S4 does in fact follow the rules of math.

    If S is 7 in S3, then 73 plus 1 is in fact 74 or S4.

  6. If they are going to use the CDMA/LTE legacy network like Engadget thinks, someone needs to pistol-whipped. Metro is going to shut down their legacy network by 2015. This is a great example what happens when GSM merges with a CDMA carrier.
