Samsung 4G LTE Slider Makes a New Appearance, We’re Doubting This is Verizon’s Version of the Galaxy S II
On 07.16.11, In News, Rumors, by Kellex
Samsung Galaxy S II. I understand that there will always be a place for phones with a full keyboard, just don’t let it be what we currently have as our top phone of all time.
Actually, we’re pretty sure (at least assuming) this device won’t be anywhere near the specs of a Galaxy S II and will likely be more of a keyboarded Fascinate (or like the Epic 4G) than anything. So far Verizon has only released 4G LTE phones that were essentially built with last year’s tech, so it makes sense to assume that this one will also fall into that category. All signs on our end are pointing towards the DROID Bionic being their first real LTE beast (dual-core, 1GB of RAM, etc.) that will be backed by a massive marketing campaign. My guess, is that this phone will be their late July or early August 4G LTE filler while they prepare the world for the release of the Bionic (which may not drop until 9/1).
Oh, you can tell that this phone is running an old version of TouchWiz and not the one seen on the SGS2. That Messaging icon and the shaded home dock are dead giveaways. This specific phone also happens to be sporting a 5MP rear camera (SGS2 has 8MP) and a 1.3MP front cam (2MP on the SGS2). So yeah, this isn’t looking at all like some mysterious dual-core slider beast from Samsung, but instead, just another rehash from 2010.
This device first popped up a couple of weeks ago and is now clearly in the hands of testers – we could be seeing it very soon.
Anyone interested in a 4G LTE slider?

A few more details on Verizon's Samsung SCH-i405 slider
By Phil Nickinson 17 Jul 2011 1:39 pm
We're getting a few more details in on the Verizon Samsung slider we brought you new pictures of yesterday. Good news and bad news, depending on which way you were hoping: This feller -- it's indeed the SCH-i405 -- has a single-core processor running at 1GHz. Not exactly anything to sniff at, but neither is it the dual-core monster found in the Galaxy S II. RAM's at 512MB, with 300MB or so available for running apps.
Other specs of note: The display is 480x800, so none of that newfangled qHD goodness. And it looks like Samsung's crammed an 1800mAh battery into this thing. Other specs we already knew: Android 2.3.4, and that five-row sliding keyboard, and a 4G LTE radio.
So, it's a mid-level slider, which certainly has its own merits. Anybody have a hankering?
