Samsung 4G LTE smartphone for Verizon packs Super AMOLED Plus display
Samsung 4G LTE smartphone (cool name, huh) seems to be the name of the SCH-i520 for Verizon Wireless. The first 4G LTE phone from the manufacturer to hit the carrier, runs on Android 2.2 Froyo with TouchWiz interface, and 1GHz processor.

Above the 4.3" Super AMOLED Plus screen, it has a front-facing 1.3MP camera for video chatting. The main camera is 8-megapixel one, on the back of course. The Samsung 4G LTE will come preloaded with Swype for easier text input. To take full advantage of the 4G speeds, it will feature Mobile HotSpot app, so you can share the fast connection with your notebook for example.

We already know that there will be a $25 rugged protective case so you can keep your precious smartphone alive, if you like to drop it.
Currently, there is no information when it will be available and at what price. The four physical buttons at the bottom are certainly no dealbreaker, as some people prefer to feel things clicking beneath their fingers, but the "chin" at the bottom is an acquired taste.
