Samsung Stratosphere not Verizon Galaxy S II Variant

August 15, 2011, By Sanjeev

A while back, we heard about the Samsung Stratosphere, which was rumored to be Verizon’s version of the Galaxy S II. The new smartphone is coming out, but apparently not as the Big Red’s Galaxy S II.

This bit of news was cleared of dust by the folks at Droid-life. According to them, the Samsung Stratosphere is likely to be a slider device (a gadget that could resemble the Epic 4G).

The release window of the Stratosphere might coincide with that of the Droid-Bionic’s: September 8th. The news might prove to be disappointing for some, but then we will be seeing a new product out of the shell.

And while they were at it, the Droid-life people also unearthed some info on the HTC Vigor and the LG Revolution 2. The Vigor is said to sport a 1.5GHz dual core processor under the hood coupled with 16GB internal storage and 1GB RAM and it should be running Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread.

Other features on the Vigor include a 4.3-inch 720p HD touch screen, an 8 megapixel rear camera as well as a 2 megapixel front facing camera. The device apparently packs a new version of the HTC Sense that has been code-named as “3.5”.

On the other hand, the LG Revolution carries 4.5-inch HD touch screen and will be coming with enough ammunition to battle out Verizon’s 4G LTE network. The device is rumored to be thinner than the iPhone and HTC Vigor, but that is all about the details that have been let out.

With a nice line-up on front, the end of  2011 should be seeing some pretty boys in the market.
