Feature-phones FTW: First Samsung Intensity III photo appears

Feature-phones FTW: First Samsung Intensity III photo appears
Do you remember the Samsung Intensity for Verizon? Yeah, that T-Rex of the feature-phone era - one of the last of its kind, actually... Well, guess what, a new model in the same series will be released very soon (as it was also indicated by its recent appearance in the CelleBrite system).

Apparently, those Intensity IIIs will soon be hitting the shelves, as an enterprising tipster has sent us the first ever photo of a Samsung Intensity III dummy unit. Whoa!

All joking aside, there are still a lot of people using feature-phones, so the Intensity III will sure be a welcome addition to Verizon's budget line-up. Plus, it's got a shiny physical QWERTY keyboard, which will make typing out emails messages a breeze... or at least, a bit more convenient than it is with a virtual one.

As far as other specs go, though, we know absolutely nothing. Still, that screen seems to be around 2.2 or 2.4 inches... Hmm. We'll leave the rest to you, guys.

So, um, who's getting an Intensity III?

Thanks, anonymous tipster!

Cool if it's prepaid I'd get my pet dog one. She isn't smart enough for touch screen phones...(:

Funny- I was just talking to my Sis-In-Law about her wanting a new phone, and all she wants is text and call. I hope Sammy gets this out in a hurry. The LG Extrovert is the only feature phone I have found on Verizon with even decent reviews. Be nice to see her have choices. I have taken a survey: in my depressed area, 2 out of every 3 people I know have a feature phone or just a basic flip. This is STILL big business.

I don't think its sad I sell phones and believe it or not some people still buy these type of phones but its usually older people in there 50s not everyone wants all them flashy stuff like 4G ,ffc, touchscreen etc... Some people just want a basic phone to make calls and send text that's the part u and many others don't seem to get...

First off, this phone is marketed for pets. I'm getting my dog one so talk what you know. But I already know Verizon is going to price it at like 50 dollars on contract....

My sister uses the current version of this. She doesn't need and couldn't use a smartphone. It's hard to find a feature phone these days, let alone one that has the features she needs. Glad Verizon still has these.

Looks like they went with a "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" philosophy. This is good. The Intensity has been a venerable series, with very few screwing up that I've ever seen. It's also been one of the few basic messaging phones out there that still has a relatively intuitive design, unlike that s**tbag the Flight.

This aint nothing to the Samsung Brightside. But it is a good option if you dont want touchscreen at all

its really not all that uncommon for these phones to sell decent, some people just want basic stuff. and some people who leave these phones for smartphones get too connected and come back to these phones. the instensity line hasnt been bad, but i know im waiting for july 9th or 11th for the gs3
