We’ve been expecting the Samsung Stratosphere to make its way to Verizon with a little LTE action, but besides that 4G connectivity, the phone’s capabilities have been largely unknown to us. We had been expecting something upper-mid-tier-ish, and it looks like we weren’t too far off; a leaked Verizon spec sheet details the Stratosphere’s components while identifying it as mid-tier piece of hardware.
According to the leak, the Stratosphere will have a 1GHz processor (we’re assuming single-core), 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of internal flash storage (a 4GB microSD brings total storage up to 8GB). The QWERTY slider will feature a four-inch WVGA Super AMOLED screen, a five-megapixel main camera, and a 1.3-megapixel front-facer. It will arrive with Gingerbread and TouchWiz installed, and support mobile hotspot mode with up to eight devices when connected over LTE.
Considering all that, Verizon’s mid-tier assessment sounds pretty spot-on to us. Look for it to arrive in early next month, possibly on October 6.
