Our favorite go-to guy for mobile tech leaks just spilled the beans yet again. In a tweet this morning, @evleaks showed what appears to be the Lumia 521 with MetroPCS branding in the Phone tile.
This doesn’t come as much of a surprise as T-MobileUS is currently in the process of merging the companies’ networks after agreeing to purchase MetroPCS. This would help ease the transitional process and add some familiarity between the carriers as users are eventually switched to the former’s network. This is also significant as it marks the first and only Windows Phone 8 device to launch on MetroPCS.
There has been no official statement made, but we’ll likely hear something soon.
