As expected, Verizon has stamped "Official" on the speculation that the next LTE handset would be launched next week. The Samsung Droid Charge will be released on April 28th and as we earlier reported
, will be priced at $299.99 with a 2-year contract. Verizon customers might be shocked at the price, considering that the phone has a 1GHz single-core processor under the hood. But the rest of the specs are certainly high-end including the 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Plus display, the 8MP camera in the back that captures video at 1080p, the front-facing 1.3MP camera and the 1600mAh battery. One other minor disappointment is that Android 2.2 is on board rather than Gingerbread.
