The first of Verizon's sliders with LTE connectivity will soon launch on October 5th as the Samsung Stratosphere
. Droid Life has obtained a couple of Verizon charts that compares the Stratosphere with other Verizon 4G LTE devices and other Verizon sliders. First, let's delve into the official stats of the phone. According to Verizon, the Samsung Stratosphere will have a single-core 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM aboard. There are two cameras with a 5MP shooter on back capturing video at 480p and a 1.3MP one on front. The screen is a 4 inch WVGA Super AMOLED display. Samsung's TouchWiz runs over Android 2.3.
On the comparison chart showing other LTE devices (except the Motorola DROID BIONIC which is conspicuous by its absence), Verizon lists each phone's "tier". For example, the Samsung Droid Charge
and the HTC ThunderBolt
are listed as being high tier phones. In case you're wondering, the Samsung Stratosphere is listed as being a mid tier phone, so you can expect it to be priced accordingly.
