Been itching for a good press render of Verizon’s upcoming LTE enabled Samsung Stratosphere? Look no further.
Originally rumored to launch September 8 (the device has obviously missed that date), the Stratosphere is essentially a reworked and upgraded Epic 4G for Verizon. Coming in with a full Qwerty keyboard and support for Verizon’s LTE 4G network, solid specs on the Stratosphere have somehow remained a mystery (even after being leaked several different times now). The latest rumors on the Stratosphere pegged the device as having a ~4-inch screen, a 5 megapixel camera, a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera and Android 2.3.4.
As you might have already guessed from the paragraph above, nothing new has been revealed with the discovery of this photo. While browsing around the Pantech Breakout page on WireFly.com, blogger Owen Johnston happened across the picture of the Stratosphere with no information attached.
As of right now, the Stratosphere is expected to launch on October 6. Much like the Breakout, the Stratosphere may be a more wallet friendly device from Verizon, that still offers access to the carrier’s blazing fast 4G network. You might not find dual-cores, NFC and Ice Cream Sandwich when the Stratosphere finally launches, but you will find a sufficiently fast device that texting teens would love to buy.
