Details on Verizon’s 4G LTE Samsung Slider, courtesy of Mr. Blurrycam

We know some of you love those physical keyboards, and the selection of devices with this feature is becoming less abundant. Verizon (like most carriers) doesn’t have many options (mostly just the Motorola Droid family and the LG Ally). If you’ve been waiting for your next slide-out keyboard device, and don’t want to settle for one of the current options, tes much-rumored Samsung Slider may be the phone for you.

Mr. Blurrycam has shown up again, bringing pictures[1] (posted below) and details of Verizon’s next slide-out keyboard device by Samsung. As you’ll probably notice, the device does look a lot like Sprint’s Samsung Epic 4G. Those looking for a high-end device should look elsewhere, though, because the phone’s specs aren’t as exciting as its look. According to Mr. Blurrycam, this is what you can expect:


  • Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread
  • 1 GHz single-core processor
  • 512 MB of RAM
  • “Awesome” screen; Super AMOLED Plus display? (480×800)
  • 5 MP rear-facing camera / 1.3 MP front-facing camera
  • 4G LTE connectivity
  • 1800 mAh Battery

The specs aren’t that impressive, at least compared to some other debuting devices. This should also mean the price is on the lower end, but considering Verizon’s prices for their 4G devices, it might still be a bit pricey. It definitely looks like a good option for those who are in the market for a slide-out physical keyboard smartphone and aren’t impressed with the newly released Droid 3.

This device will come with the latest version of Gingerbread (2.3.4), and the 4G LTE connectivity may be a plus if your city is covered. As you can expect from Samsung Android smartphones, the screen should be quite impressive with beautiful saturated colors. Also, that battery is a beast! It’ll most likely meet your daily needs, even when using Verizon’s 4G LTE network (famous for draining batteries).

Those looking for a physical keyboard, 4G LTE connectivity and good battery life should consider this device. According to the tipster, it’s model SCH-i405, so keep your eyes open for coming details! If you prefer stronger specs, the Motorola Droid 3 is definitely a good option. What do you guys say? Think you might be going for this one? Would you rather get the Droid 3? Or are you willing to give up your physical keyboard and go for another device?

    Also remember that if you’re looking for a dual core 4G slider and you’re either with T-Mobile or willing to start up with them, they have the MyTouch 4G Slide dropping this week for web sales, next week in stores. It’s basically got a 3G Slide form factor, but some revved up internals.

    I’ve been following the reviews so far and the WORST was where CNet gave it an 8/10, in part for the camera not living up to the hype of being able to replace your dedicated point-and-shoot digicam. It’s a good camera and they liked it overall, but they felt the marketing overpromised. Other sites reviews have ranged from glowing to rave.

    I have a Samsung Moment. That phone has cost Samsung and Sprint a LOT of credibility with me. My wife and I are looking to get new sliders and the MyTouch 4G Slide looks not only like an awesome phone, but the only really good slider that’s going to be available this quarter.

    Weird,I could have sworn this phone was rumored to possibly be the Verizon SGSII variant.

    Another “last years tech” 4g phone from Verizon….

    Great device for 2010 AT BEST spec wise. I guess that finally because verizon decided to place gingerbread on this device as well as LTE for a change this can be considered to be a decent device. Well what can possibly MESS THIS UP???? WATCH VERIZON OVERPRICE THIS DEVICE AS USUAL…All they care most about is themselves NOT THE CUSTOMER. At least this and the Droid 3 have GINGERBREAD on board because everyone already knows that UPDATES ARE NOT VERIZON’S STRONG POINT and this device will not see anything PAST GINGERBREAD that’s forsure.

    Let’s see what LTE does to this 1800 MAH battery maybe the people who purchase this device can get past 4hrs on LTE….I wish them luck cause only god knows they will definately need it…

    • johnnycsx

      Dude, 1800 mAh is pretty high capacity for a phone. It should be a real blessing for any 4G/LTE handset

      • Shadowlore

        While I don’t disagree there, with the 1800MaH… the rest of the specs seem very subpar… lets hope this is meant as a ‘value’ phone and not going to be advertised as the next great thing.

  • Shadowlore

    Wow… WTH?!?! The site is redirecting the Gameloft news article to here.

  • donger

    definitely not an high end phone.
