Samsung Droid Charge Coming to VZW, LTE In Tow?

The phone originally codenamed “Stealth,” the SCH-i510, has been discovered going by a new name.  The device, which was teased at CES by Samsung and Verizon, has shown up as the Droid Charge.  Neither is acknowledging that it exists, but the word is out.  Thanks to Technobuffalo for bringing this to light!

From the reports that are out, it’s sporting a 4.3 inch, 480 x 800 Super AMOLED Plus display, 1.3 -megapixel front-facing camera, and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera that features autofocus and an LED flash.  It’s running the typical Galaxy S 1GHz Hummingbird processor and Android 2.2. It’s also touting HDMI out, a microSD card slot, 828 MB internal storage, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.  A 1500 mAh lithium-ion battery is reported to provide 8-10 hours of service with no problems.

 

What really caught our attention was the fact that it’s rumored to have LTE bands, which means you can enjoy Big Red’s blazing-fast 4G network. TechnoBuffalo’s tipster also pointed out that the Charge will get the same speeds seen on the LTE data cards, with no plans to throttle them. This is a definite plus for anyone that’s interested in buying the device, which is rumored for a mid-April launch. So, with that being said, who’s looking forward to picking one of these up when they drop?

        What sense does that make? Samsung has dual core phones. How about the Infuse 4G? Galaxy S II?

        You mad? that’s why there are a plethora of Android Devices coming out with Dual Core processors soon. Not to mention the Moto Atrix has a Dual Core and it’s already out.

    Perhaps the price stated for the Charge is actually meant for the Galaxy S II?

    What do you mean rumored to have LTE? Wasn’t that announced when they announced the phone at CES?

        Actually hes right in EVERYTHING he said . Verizon is a bunch of mother fuckers who wont even credit ANYTHING on your bill even when its THEIR FAULT. Their phones are ALWAYS behind Sprint and T-Mo’s android line up and the ONLY thing they ever really had going for them was the original droid. THAT was a market changer and NOTHING ELSE verizon has done. Aside from getting a 6 month old already outdated iPhone and giving the poor saps at ATT another shitty carrier to jump ship too … Its like going from a stinky pile of poo to a flaming one.

        THEY MAY be the big 2 but their line up sucks , their plans are RIDICULOUSLY over priced and at the end of the day THEIR SERVICE SUCKS . As long as you live in a big city or surrounding area (90% of Americans) than you have GREAT coverage with T-Mo or Sprint and you have some kick ass phones to go along with it.

          Sprint and T-Mobile have better phones!? Since when!? There about the same. And I don’t mind paying more to actually get service.
