MetroPCS is launching the Samsung Galaxy S4 on its network, as previously teased, and will work on the carrier's 4G LTE network. The flagship Samsung smartphone will be going on sale in select markets for $549 without a contract, as MetroPCS does not currently offer such commitments. Other markets to receive the device on the network, along with online availability, will be announced in the future.
