Samsung SCH-I425 "Godiva" appears on photos, lacks QWERTY keyboard

The mysterious Samsung SCH-I425, also known by its "Godiva" codename, appeared on the GLBenchmark database earlier this week. And judging by its model number, we were quick to assume that it was a successor to the Samsung Stratosphere II (model SCH-I415) QWERTY slider from Verizon. However, the smartphone in question has now been leaked on the web, and a QWERTY keyboard is nowhere to be seen. Instead, the device reminds us a lot of a Samsung Galaxy S III with redesigned Android buttons.

The tipster who provided the images didn't reveal any specifications for the Samsung SCH-I425, although it is being shown that Android 4.1.2 comes installed on it. According to the smartphone's benchmark results, there's a dual-core Snapdragon S4 chip handling all computations and the screen has a resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels. There's also support for Verizon's 4G LTE wireless network. Further details aren't yet known, but an official announcement of the Samsung "Godiva" might not be far off.
