Samsung and Verizon may be teaming up again to bring another mid-range smartphone based on results taken from the database of GL Benchmarks. This model is called Godiva and has a model number SCH-i425. This suggests a new Stratosphere model since the previous devices in this lineup had names such as SCH-i405 and SCH-i415.
The Stratosphere lineup is known for its models having a physical QWERTY keyboard and this upcoming model might just have one too. This line isn’t known for its high end specifications at the time of release but instead offers a solid smartphone at a competitive price point.
Based on the benchmark results though there is no proof yet that this model comes with a QWERTY keyboard. Despite the fact that touch screens are great to use there are still some people who prefer using physical keyboards. Verizon may want to supply this particular niche with a great model.
Since details of the Samsung Godiva are still scant here’s what we do know so far of this model.
- It’s coming to Verizon
- It will support the carriers LTE network
- Screen resolution is 1280 by 720 pixels
- 1.4GHz MSM8960 SoC powers the device??
- Adreno 305 graphics
- Runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean
The specs of this device suggest a mid-range smartphone that’s capable of supporting LTE. There’s no detail yet on what the screen size will be even though the screen resolution is already given.
Those are the known facts so far. Now for the speculations, a lot of people are considering this as the successor to the Stratosphere II mainly because of the naming convention used. The frist Stratosphere was named SCH-i405 while the second model was named SCH-i415. Based on this pattern then it would be safe to assume that the upcoming SCH-i425 will become the Stratosphere III.
Since this is still all preliminary results with nothing official announced yet we will keep you guys posted on further details about this product.
