LG Esteem 1

The LG Esteem is a name that's been kicking around the Internet for a month or so, and today a friendly ninja sent us these screenshots from LG's partner portal, confirming the LTE enabled device for Metro PCS.  We have most of the specifications: 1GHz Snapdragon, 512MB RAM and 8GB on-board storage, a 4.3 inch LCD display, 5MP shooter around back (capable of 720p video recording) and a 1.3MP front facing camera, a 1500mAh battery and it will run on Metro PCS' CDMA/LTE network.  Also on board will be Gingerbread, and what looks to be the latest version of LG's Optimus UI.  No word on the price or the release date, but we're hearing "soon" <insert grain of salt>.  Catch some more screen shots, including the specifications after the break.

Update: Our friend just let us know that the Esteem will $349 with a $100 mail-in rebate.  Our wallets approve!

Thanks, Anon!
