Samsung Stratosphere LTE-Capable QWERTY Slider Hops on to Verizon Network

September 7, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

For all those who thought that Verizon’s LTE network needs to add more devices to their line up, here is something to be happy about. The US carrier is expected to offer the combo of LTE and a QWERTY slider in the form of the Samsung Stratosphere SCH-I405, as early as this week.

The device may arrive alongside big names such as Droid Bionic and the BlackBerry Curve 9370 Apollo. The specs of the device are a bit sketchy, though the LTE support will mean faster mobile broadband connection.

The Stratosphere is rumored to have an awesome screen, may be Super AMOLED Plus and the spec sheet goes thus: Google Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread OS, 2 GB internal storage, and a 5 megapixel rear camera plus front facing 1.3 camera.

The device could be positioned below the Galaxy S line, or somewhere between all those mid and high-end smartphones that are now available.

The Samsung Stratosphere may not replace the Galaxy S II, which Big Red decided not to carry. But it looks like those who wanted the Galaxy S II could be pleased with this one on Verizon.

The device may come for around $150 or more on contract, depending on the processor it packs as well as the screen.
