Back in April was when we last heard about the Samsung Jasper
, or if you prefer, the SCH-i200. This model is expected to come Verizon's way packed with some nice high-end goodies, like the dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 processor
. Yet, despite the S4 under the hood, the Samsung Jasper's display of unknown size will be flaunting its rather low to mid range screen resolution. Jasper seems to want to tempt you with silicon
, but these days 480 x 854 is nothing to write home about.
Considering that the mid-range Samsung Gem and Samsung Illusion were the SCH-i100 and the SCH-i110, the Samsung Jasper fits right in. We could see this as a back up for those who love the Samsung Galaxy S III but don't want to spend the scratch ($199.99 for 16GB with a 2-year contract) that Verizon will be charging for the Korean manufacturer's new flagship model. By the way, the Samsung Jasper scored a respectable 2853 on the GLBenchmark test.
