Samsung 4G LTE smartphone for Verizon packs Super AMOLED Plus display
Above the 4.3" Super AMOLED Plus screen, it has a front-facing 1.3MP camera for video chatting. The main camera is 8-megapixel one, on the back of course. The Samsung 4G LTE will come preloaded with Swype for easier text input. To take full advantage of the 4G speeds, it will feature Mobile HotSpot app, so you can share the fast connection with your notebook for example.
We already know that there will be a $25 rugged protective case so you can keep your precious smartphone alive, if you like to drop it.
Currently, there is no information when it will be available and at what price. The four physical buttons at the bottom are certainly no dealbreaker, as some people prefer to feel things clicking beneath their fingers, but the "chin" at the bottom is an acquired taste.

so, the Engadget photos show this device as the i510, not the the i520. different devices? i520 the next galaxy s series? i also agree with Ryan oh yea about the dual core. i have the Fascinate now. i love my phone (rooted). if i was going to upgrade and stick with Samsung, i am looking for the latest and greatest. why not put the dual core Samsung?

because if it did, it would have been the clear choice amongst the new verizon phones.

the physical buttons are gonna keep me from gettting it. cannot stand the clicking of buttons, i want all touch. also, the lack of dual core is very dissapointing. the only reason i'd consider this phone is the super amoled, which verizon does not have any phones coming out with this screen besides this subpar one. very dissapointed.
