Samsung Stratosphere outed, could launch via Verizon September 8th
Remember that mysterious Samsung slider, the SCH-i405, headed for Verizon that was pictured during the summer? Many Verizon customers had hoped that it would be a variant of the Samsung Galaxy S II. Remember the Samsung Stratosphere that was listed on the Verizon roadmap we reported? Many thought that would be the Samsung Galaxy S II. Now that we know better, and the Samsung Galaxy S II is not coming to Big Red as we informed you, it turns out that Pocketnow has discovered that the mysterious slider is the Samsung Stratosphere

To refresh your memory, the Stratosphere has a 4 inch screen with what appears to be a Super AMOLED Plus screen. 2GB of storage is aboard as is a 5MP rear camera and a 1.3MP front-facing one. It will offer 4G, LTE support and Android 2.3 will be pre-installed. The Samsung Stratosphere has a side sliding physical QWERTY keyboard and will replace Big Red's variant of the Samsung Galaxy S-the Samsung Fascinate-in Verizon's lineup. Pricing is unknown and the roadmap suggests a launch as early as September 8th for the phone.
