While Samsung and Verizon Wireless had shown off the manufacturer’s 4G LTE Android smartphone earlier this year at the Consumer Electronics Show, Samsung did not have a name for the phone, which utilizes Verizon’s faster 4G mobile broadband network along with rivals like the LG Revolution, HTC Thunderbolt, and the Motorola Droid Bionic. However, since then, it seems that the outfit may have settled for Stealth as the name.
The Samsung Stealth will sport a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, like the Samsung Infuse 4G on AT&T, and will feature a 1 GHz single-core Hummingbird processor, like those found on the Galaxy S smartphones, and not the newer dual-core Exynos CPUs.
The device has a front-facing camera along with an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash.
The Stealth is said to be upgradeable to Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but it’s unclear when the new OS will be made available to users and Samsung still has not announced a release date for the Stealth. The phone will initially launch with Android 2.2, it seems, and will support mobile broadband sharing by allowing up to 8 devices to tether to the phone’s 4G connection.
