Samsung Galaxy Stellar Tipped For Verizon, Could Launch In A Matter Of Weeks
Samsung’s clearly been busy in the mid-low range with multiple Androids in the works for a number of CDMA carriers. We’ve seen two in the pipeline for Sprint, the SPH-M950 Galaxy Reverb, and the SPH-L300. Over at Verizon, we’ve been talking about the SCH-I200 “Jasper”, and late last week we saw the SCH-I415 pass through the FCC with the carrier’s bands. We may now be able to put a name to one of those Verizon models, with signs of a Galaxy Stellar emerging in a new Verizon leak.
The name appears on a list of various rebates available for Verizon smartphones and USB modems from several different manufacturers. The timetable reflected in the document, covering sales occurring through August 19, suggests that Verizon will be launching the Stellar in the very near future. Just which phone is it, though?
If the Stellar is the commercial name for Jasper, we could be looking at a WVGA handset with quite the capable dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 at its heart. We know far less about the I415, and aren’t even 100% convinced it’s an Android model, though that’s the most plausible explanation by far. It definitely uses LTE, and will have hardware capable of NFC, but that’s all we know for the moment; based on the model number, we’d assume it’s a mid-range Android.
Maybe the Galaxy Stellar is one of these two models, or perhaps it’s neither one; if the dates on this leak are accurate, we should know for sure in under a month.
