The specs listed for the L9 here are different than the specs listed on other web sites. Are there different versions built for different carriers? Because on the MetroPCS website, it indicates that the L9 has a 4.5" screen and not 4.7" as indicated here. Also, no mention of any built-in FM tuner. Also, both units are on Android Jellybean, neither is on Ice Cream Sandwich and both are identified as "4G" but MetroPCS doesn't specify "LTE".
