Samsung Jasper leaks again, headed to Verizon
Supposedly legitimate photos of the Samsung Jasper, which was previously spotted at the FCC and in benchmark results, have leaked on Twitter, making the smartphone's release on Verizon seem imminent. The tipster who provided the shots posted some of the smartphone's hardware specs as well, and although they don't come near those of the Samsung Galaxy S III, for example, the handset might be a keeper, if priced accordingly.

It is rumored that the Samsung Jasper is equipped with a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor – the MSM8960 clocked at 1.5GHz. The presence of a 4G LTE logo suggests that it will run on Verizon's speedy cellular network for fast mobile internet access. Now prepare for your initially positive impression to be crushed after we tell you that its display has a resolution of 480 by 800 pixels, which is nothing impressive by today's standards. There is no LED flash on the smartphone's back, meaning that its camera likely won't be a huge selling point.

Oh well, at least it is said that the Samsung Jasper will run Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box. The interface reminds us of the TouchWiz Nature UX present on the Galaxy S III, although the similarity might be only superficial, with all those advanced features omitted from the set. Interestingly, there are four capacitive buttons underneath the screen, with the fourth one presumably acting as a "Menu" key, although that is just a guess and its actual purpose might differ.

That is all we know so far, and we can only wonder how much the Samsung Jasper might cost. Its release date is also a mystery, although an announcement will likely come sooner than later, given how long rumors about the device have been circulating.

Looks like a dead-ringer for Samsung Illusion.

iAgree, looks exactly like my DROID DIS-CHARGE; NO THANK YOU, this thing makes my iPhone 4S look like a real smartphone (although, we all know I just use it as a music player). DROID DIS-CHARGE = CRAPPY, LAGGY and BUGGY¡

Name does not says anything. I believe that this Phone will be good, with such a fast proccessor, how can it be a phone for old mans? think through and remember- DON'T Judge the Book by its cover, in this case, name.

Looks like a "lower end" variant of the Droid Charge. Could possibly be for the prepaid market.

i guess we're going to have to disregard the S4 as being any kind of status symbol now since every class of phone is coming out with it. o:

If you placed the Samsung Illusion next to the Jasper and compare the backs -- the similarities are too great to ignore. The main difference is the 4G LTE logo,
