Samsung accidentally spills the beans on the Illusion for Verizon through Flickr
posted by John V. / Sep 16, 2011, 11:35 AM
Just only last week, we were introduced to the Samsung Illusion for Verizon as a rendered image of the handset was leaked. Based on the information dished up by Flickr, it confirms that it’s given the SCH-I110 model number, and the fact that it’s going to be some sort of eco-centric smartphone. Additionally, it’ll be featuring 3G speeds only and Samsung’s most up-to-date TouchWiz interface running on top of Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
However, we’re still in the dark regarding other warranted specs – such as its screen size, processor, and price point. So far, the rumors suggest it packing an 800MHz or 1GHz processor, either a 3 or 5-megapixel shooter in the rear, and a screen resolution of 320 x 480. Furthermore, it’s purported to launch sometime on or around September 29th with a price point of $100 or less with a 2-year contract.
If it’s indeed shaping up to become an eco-centric device, we wonder what other notable features it’ll be packing along for the ride. Maybe a solar charger like the one used by the Samsung Replenish?

It's a 3G phone. It's already out-dated. LOL

You showed your best? Sorry I think I migh have missed it. I'll just tell you one thing doing what apple haters do just on the opposite side turns you into what you hate. And make this site more like a playground rather than a discussion site. And yeah I'm already writing books. I'm a hobbist.

Some people won't be getting LTE love from VZW for a while (in some instances, for more than 2+ years). What are they to do? Suck it up? Go to another carrier who has 3G phones that have other updated features? VZW has phones like the Droid X2, and this latest Sammy model and others for those customers who aren't going to be getting any LTE love for a while. Apple understands about LTE still having a ways to go - both from a technology point as well as an implementation footprint. Which is why no LTE edition of the iPhone.

I love how everyone jumps on entry/midlevel phones here immediately and dismisses them. Android fans dis the iPhone for only coming in one size/shape/spec a year, but when an Android phone comes along that's obviously not meant for power users, all I see is "where's the LTE/4.3"+ screen/dual core/front facing camera?? FAIL". Part of the beauty of Android is that it comes in a huge variety of sizes, shapes, speeds, colors, flavors and PRICES.

Hard to imagine that ANYONE who lives in the USA in 2012 - 2014 will not at least enter a 4g area SOMETIMES...regardless of their home area. So, if you see someone in, let's say, Vegas, on an ip5...you KNOW they have no 4g and thus have an inferior outdated device. Period.

Why does everything have to be about Apple vs. Android????? Iphone is a great phone and so are several Android phones. I personally like and dislike some things about both of them! Also, isn't it about time some of these plan prices start to drop? Or at least give us a good pre-paid smartphone with a decent rate! I am really getting sick of having to pay such a hefty price for a smartphone. They are commonplace eough now that it's time to start giving the consumer some more options so that we don't have to spend so much on these things! Don't get me wrong, I love all things moble tech, but I gotta be able to afford to do something else besides own a smartphone! Jeeeez!
