Samsung Stratosphere hits the FCC, shows dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n
Yesterday we informed you about the Samsung Stratosphere, which will be a new 4G LTE smartphone for Verizon that will feature a sliding full QWERTY keyboard, 4" Super AMOLED Plus display, 2GB internal storage, 5MP autofocus rear camera, and a 1.3MP front camera.

Now that the device has been posted to the FCC site, we've found something interesting. According to the RF Testing reports and an image of the antenna locations, the Samsung Stratosphere will support dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n. For those of you not familiar with dual-band Wi-Fi, it means that the device can connect to older 2.4GHz wireless routers (b/g/n), but also supports newer 5GHz routers (a). The advantage is that the 5GHz bandwidth has a lot less congestion, so it can make for a better Wi-Fi connection.
