Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere II I415 is heading to Verizon Wireless. In recent times we have seen some cool Windows Phones announced by Verizon. Now, arguably the leading US carrier is ready to unveil an affordable sliding QWERTY smartphone Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere II I415. Without any surprise it’s a CDMA handset that operates only CDMA network. LTE connectivity is there as well. Samsung is doing a fabulous job with Super AMOLED display. It’s used here in this handset and display size is fixed to 4 inch which is pretty exciting. Seeing the physical QWERTY keyboard many of you will be keen to get your hands on this lovely little piece of smartphone. Since this is a sliding QWERTY smartphone it’s pretty much in the thicker side and weights slightly heavy as compared to most recent droids unveiled by Samsung.
Running on Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere II I415 is powered by Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon S4 SoC that couples two 1.2 GHz clocked Krait cores and Aderno 225 GPU. It’s the same SoC set as standard for Windows Phone 8. Good thing is 1 GB RAM comes with this handset for better multitasking experience.
The droid sports 5 MP rear facing shooter with full HD video recording support. Front facing 1.3 MP camera is there as well. In connectivity segment Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere II I415 equips Bluetooth v4.0, Wi-Fi with hotspot, DLNA, micro USB, NFC. For data network connectivity along with high speed EvDo there is LTE.
