Samsung Droid Stealth Joins Verizon Lineup, May Launch April 7 [Update]
The Samsung Stealth is set to be the company’s first LTE smartphone on Verizon LTE. We’ve heard about it, seen it in the flesh, and now we may finally have an idea as to when the handset will finally come out. Android Central was leaked a screenshot revealing details of the phone’s launch with Costco, giving the phone both a tentative release date of April 7, as well as renaming it the Samsung 4G Droid Stealth.
The screenshot confirms some of the specifications we received earlier, like the 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen and a 1GHz processor, now identified as a Hummingbird. Just as expected, the Droid Stealth should have both main eight-megapixel and front-facing 1.3-megapixel cameras.
We were already expecting a mid-April launch for the Stealth, so this April 7 date certainly looks plausible. Hopefully any LTE-related bumps have been smoothed-over since the Thunderbolt’s launch; we wouldn’t want to have to see another series of delays. You’ll be able to get your hands on the phone even earlier than the 7th, as demo units are set to arrive in Costco stores this Thursday, coinciding with the start of pre-orders.
Update: The guys over at Droid Life have been hearing from their tipsters that even at this late stage, Stealth is only the phone’s internal code name. According to multiple tips, they believe the phone will be launched as the Droid Charge.
