FCC filing reveals the Samsung U380 - a slider bound for Verizon?
You’re probably thinking hard already about what this new slider might be all about, especially when it bears many similarities to the Samsung Droid Charge, but let’s get it out of the way – it’s nothing more than a feature phone!

You heard that right people! It’s nothing more than a feature phone with a slide-out landscape style keyboard. Sorry to get your hopes up, but a recent FCC filing managed to dish out some details regarding this device, which is currently going by the name of the Samsung SCH-U380. Besides the close design similarities with the Droid Charge, it’s almost certainly bound for Big Red’s network – well, that’s because it employs a distinguishable V CAST logo on the handset’s charger. On top of that, it supports the CDMA EV-DO 850/1900MHz bands.

As far as features, there’s not a whole lot that can be found from the filing, but it does show it packing a camera of some size, 3.5mm headset jack, and microSD card slot. More than likely, the Samsung SCH-U380 will be priced affordably considering it’s a feature phone. Even more, it can potentially land as being a prepaid device too from Verizon.
