With all eyes on the HTC Thunderbolt, Verizon’s other two upcoming 4G LTE smartphones have fallen out of the spotlight somewhat, but it looks like Samsung’s SCH-i510 “Stealth V” may be inching closer to its own release — at least if the appearance of accessories at Walmart is any clue (and it usually is). Plus, we just saw i510 out in the wild courtesy of TechnoBuffalo, and it seems to be increasing the amount of test shots it uploads to Picasa, both of which are fairly good indicators of an impending rollout.
Packing a single-core, gigahertz-class [...]
Samsung’s first 4G LTE smartphone, known as Stealth or i510, cleared the FCC just about a week ago. Verizon-bound, it features an ample 4.3″ Super AMOLED Plus display, Android 2.2, an 8MP camera on the back, and a 1.3MP shooter up front. These leaked shots, procured by TechnoBuffalo, show the big and bright screen in its fully glory, plus the nice-sized hardware keys beneath the display. The photos show the Stealth running with Launcher Pro, though it’ll ship with the latest version of Samsung’s TouchWiz. According to the tipster, the Stealth is pitted for a [...]
Remember back when Verizon announced its lineup of upcoming 4G LTE phones and Samsung didn’t have a name for its contribution? We had already seen a picture of the Samsung i520 apparently connected over LTE, so that seemed like the prime candidate. Later we heard a rumor that the previously-unnamed Samsung 4G LTE phone would be the Stealth. The Stealth was already on our radar thanks to a DLNA certification, identifying it as the i510. Confused yet? Now the i510 is back in the news, as we’ve found documentation, just published today, showing the phone’s journey [...]
You might remember the Samsung Stealth, Verizon’s first 4G LTE smartphone, from the days of CES, and then later, as it passed FCC on-route to Big Red. There were also some recent sightings of the device with pictures of it but we managed to meet the Stealth in person at a recent show.
The device sports a 1GHz processor, eight-megapixel camera on the back with LED flash, 1.3-megapixel camera on the front, acting as a webcam, 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display — the same as the one on the Samsung Galaxy S II — 4G LTE capable radio and it is running Google Android [...]
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 [...]
Yesterday we caught a glimpse of Samsung’s planned Verizon LTE smartphone in Costco’s computer systems, going by a slight variation of the Stealth name we’ve been hearing for some time. Even with the phone’s planned release just over two weeks away, we got word that Stealth was still only the phone’s internal code name, and that it would be getting a proper moniker before Verizon started promoting it. Today there’s finally something in the way of confirmation that the name is indeed changing, and it looks like Verizon has decided on the Samsung Droid [...]
