Samsung’s first 4G LTE Android phone for Verizon Wireless, the Samsung Droid Charge, will be available next Thursday for $299.99 with a new two year agreement. It was originally reported that the Droid Bionic would be second out of the gate for Verizon Wireless 4G devices however it seems Samsung has testing complete and the Charge is ready to, well, Charge.
Although the name has been reported earlier and on other sites, this will be the first time a device not made by either Motorola or HTC is sporting the “Droid” moniker. It’s also believed that the Samsung Droid Charge is what all the hype over at the @droidlanding twitter account is about. We’d suggest following @droidlanding now.
The Samsung Droid Charge was originally announced as the Samsung Galaxy S 4G at CES earlier this year. This feature Android phone includes:
4.3 inch SuperAMOLED screen
8.5mp rear facing camera and a 1.3mp front facing camera
Adobe flash compatible
Unique new form factor
One of the most notable features on the new Samsung Droid Charge is the ability to hook up 10 other devices via Wi-Fi Hotspot on 4G and up to 5 other devices via Wi-Fi Hotspot using 3G.
The Samsung Droid Charge has now officially been announced by both Samsung and Verizon and we will see it next week.
