Samsung’s Stratosphere 2 isn’t one of the most grand and groundbreaking devices that they have released this year compared to the Galaxy S III and some other notable ones. Regardless, Samsung’s long-rumored Stratosphere 2 is expected to serve as a decent entry level device on Verizon’s network. In addition to that, a couple of images have surfaced revealing that dummy units for Samsung’s upcoming QWERTY sliders is officially headed to retailers across the country. That could mean that a launch for the entry-level handset might not be that far off from now. In fact, a launch could be as early as next week.
Samsung’s Stratosphere 2 is expected to tout a 4-inch Super AMOLED Plus display running off of a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB of RAM and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Also, as with all of the new devices that are released on Verizon’s network, the Stratosphere 2 will be able to run on Big Red’s nearly finished 4G LTE network, which means that you will be getting some crazy data speeds. Pricing hasn’t been made official, but it is possibility that it could be running at $99. That would definitely be a selling point, but keep in mind that the Nokia Lumia 822 is also a mere $99. Of course, if you prefer a QWERTY keyboard, that Stratosphere is definitely not a bad smartphone.
