Samsung’s nameless 4G LTE Android handset on Verizon may end up being named the Samsung Verdict, based on evidence from trademark filings. While Samsung refused to even refer to the 4.3-inch device by its SCH-i520 model number when introducing it at Verizon’s LTE news conference at CES yesterday, it turns out that Sammy filed for two other trademarks on the same day that it sought protection on the brand that would become its other new phone at this show, the upcoming Infuse 4G on AT&T. Those marks are “Indulge” and “Verdict;” however, with [...]
We’re pretty sure that Verizon is going to reveal the Samsung SCH-i520 among its first LTE smartphones tomorrow, but as is usually the case these days, this handset seems to have shown up a little early thanks to that leaky faucet of an etailer Offwire. Just days after tipping dozens of accessories for the upcoming Verizon iPhone 4, the company is back in the news with more cases for an unannounced device, this time giving us the first clear view of its face.
We have to say that we’re digging the physical buttons up front, as one of our main gripes with the [...]
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 [...]
Ever since we saw a screenshot of a purported Verizon computer, we were pretty sure that Samsung’s 4G LTE smartphone would be joining the Droid lineup as the Samsung Droid Charge. Now, with this product photo showing off a restyled Droid “red eye,” that branding is all but confirmed. It’s somewhat interesting that the eye is being used to market a non-Motorola device, as we’d previously only seen it on that manufacturer’s handsets — neither the Droid Incredible nor the Droid Eris from HTC were publicized with the eye.
Introduced without [...]
