    So we are trying to put the pieces together from SamFirmware's recent tweets early today on a device that's "a lot better then the Nexus S" due out February of 2011. Cereal Killer was quick to reference back to a device that was mentioned by PhoneArena a couple weeks ago dubbed the Samsung SCH-i510 (Stealth V). This flagship phone was rumored to have all hardware specs that many of us were hoping the Nexus S would have received. Some of these include:

    • 4.3" Super AMOLED Display
    • 8MP Camera with dual-LED Flash
    • Full 1080P Recording
    • Samsung Orion Dual Core Chipset @ 1GHz
    • Android 2.3 Gingerbread

    So, we (Verizon Wireless users) might miss out on yet another Google Phone but with rumors of this super phone in the android pipe we at least have something better to look forward to.

    I hope so...the Orion dual core. Something to at least do comparisons with the Tegra 2.

    My main concern is battery life. I got a feeling at least one of these dual core chips will be at the bottom for battery life...

    Yea CK....if its has vanilla Android...forget about the Nexus S...THIS will be the phone you want...

    I may have to leave Moto for a spell if its has vanilla Android....even if it doesnt. If that chip winds up being better than the Tegra 2....its over for me n Moto...lol

    It will probably have TouchWiz 4.0 Which looks even more like iOS. I really wish it would have stock Gingerbread, but it most likely wont.

    I don't think it will be "better" seeing that it has the same CPU architecture as the Tegra 2. Graphics is a whole other story though. I don't know what GPU the Orion will be running. One thing is for sure. The Tegra 2 and Orion will hands down be the best processors to breathe inside an Android handset.

    I think the real difference may be which one is the best with battery life.

    I cant wait til my upgrade comes next year....lol Hopefully there will be at least 2 dual core phones to choose from.

    I guess all that matters in the choice between Etna and this device (and maybe the LG Star) is build quality and whether or not the iu is skinned.

    So I've been keeping up on the Etna and have noticed that you were pretty confident that was going to be your next phone. Over in the other area you seem like you are leaning towards this one. What would have swayed your decision? Screen size and the Super AMOLED?

    No manufacturer UI overlay would be the deciding factor for me. If this handset comes with plain Gigerbread, and thats a big if, I wouldn't hesitate on upgrading to it.

    I'm going to see how this all plays out. One thing is for sure the Etna is at the top of my list and something needs to knock it off : ) this device MAY just do that. We'll see.

    Any insider info on release dates? :) The initial on the Etna was Feb (verizon) but then I heard early summer 2011.

    Once you get a taste of pure and simple Android it's hard to go backwards : )

    Vanilla Android is like a fresh clean stream. These UI's(Sense, Blur Touchwiz) are like throwing mud into the stream. They pollute it.

    Launcher Pro, ADW etc etc...it's just not the same. It's hard to explain but I personally don't want to be forced to install one of these launchers on my device to enjoy it.

    Amen, brotha! I've had the Nexus One all along, and nothing with an overlay appeals to me in any way. In fact, that's part of the reason I haven't rooted the thing yet! I just like the way Google does it--pure, straightforward Android. dancedroid
