Remember the Samsung Stratosphere, one of those devices we’ve seen on Verizon’s leaked roadmap? Well we now have additional details to report about it, compliments of DroidLife which managed to get its hands on two charts comparing Samsung’s baby with some other smartphones.
But first, let’s talk about the specs. The Stratosphere is a device that we would most easily describe as Verizon’s version of Sprint’s Epic 4G. It’s pretty much the original Samsung Galaxy S under the hood, adding the ever-useful physical QWERTY keyboard to the mix. In that sense, it comes with a 4-inch WVGA Super AMOLED touchscreen, single-core 1GHz processor, 5-megapixel camera on the back, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, 512MB of RAM, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, Wi-Fi, GPS Bluetooth, and the most important part – 4G LTE connectivity support.
All said, we’re not surprised Verizon is describing phone as a mid-tier option, hinting us it could cost about $150 on a contract.
Here’s how the Samsung Stratosphere compares with other Verizon’s 4G LTE phones (except Droid Bionic):
