Samsung Godiva rides into the FCC, ultimate destination is Verizon

Samsung Godiva rides into the FCC, ultimate destination is Verizon
Last month, we told you about the SCH-I425, a Samsung model headed for Verizon that made an appearance on the GLBenchmark site. Code named the Samsung Godiva, from what we could find out the device has a screen of undetermined size with 720p resolution. A dual-core 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 processor runs under the hood, and the Adreno 305 GPU crunches the graphics. Android 4.1.2 is said to be installed, out of the box.

Last month, we figured that the Godiva could be a Samsung Stratosphere III based on the SCH-I425 model number. The original side sliding QWERTY enabled Samsung Stratosphere was the SCH-I405 while the Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere II was the SCH-I415. Hey, this isn't brain surgery you know. Anyway, the Samsung Godiva just rode in to visit the FCC, and if the model number theory does pan out, the Feds might have been looking at a new mid-range model with a side-sliding QWERTY. Also spotted was support for CDMA and LTE bands, as well as for future AWS pipelines. GSM roaming capability and NFC support are both also included with the device.

With the FCC in the rear-view mirror, perhaps we will soon see a more revealing introduction to the SCH-I425.
