Rumor Round-Up: HTC Vigor, Samsung Stratosphere, LG Revolution 2

If all the leaked hardware info from earlier today for some of Samsung’s upcoming smartphones wasn’t enough for you, we’ve got a couple more rumors of future Androids for you to start drooling over, with info on devices from HTC, LG, and Samsung.

The Samsung Stratosphere is one smartphone we’ve heard will be coming to Verizon, and previous rumors had speculated that it might be the carrier’s version of the Galaxy S2. This new rumor says that the phone is definitely on its way to Verizon, anticipated for arrival on September 8, but that it won’t be the GS2 at all. Instead, the Stratosphere would be the SCH-i405 QWERTY slider, the first for the manufacturer on Verizon.

HTC’s Vigor popped back up on our radar this summer after not hearing the name for years. From some of the early specs we heard rumored, the phone sounded like it would be a real dynamo, which this additional information seems to support. We heard it would have a 1.5GHz processor, which we’re now told will be dual-core. Its 4.3-inch screen is said to in full 720p HD resolution, and the handset should have a gig of RAM while shipping with Gingerbread and Sense 3.5. This would also be one of the first HTC models to take advantage of the just-announced partnership with Beats.

Then we have the LG Revolution 2, which so far we’ve known of through its test pics. This one’s supposed to be very, very thin (though we’re left guessing as to an actual measurement) and run on Verizon’s LTE network. The only other spec available is that it may have a 4.5-inch display, which is said to be HD; another 720p component?
