Samsung Stealth V with Verizon 4G LTE hits the FCC, is a launch coming soon?
Samsung’s Stealth V, the company’s first 4G LTE phone for Verizon, made an appearance on the FCC today. The device, which goes by the model number SCH-i510, made its first appearance at CES this year. The Stealth V was expected to be one of Verizon’s first LTE phones, but with the launch of the HTC ThunderBolt delayed with no ETA in sight, the Stealth V might be the first LTE device to make it on Verizon’s new 4G network.
The Stealth V rocks a 4.3” super AMOLED display powered by Samsung’s dual-core Orion processor. The phone is expected to take 1080p video with its 8MP camera. At CES, the device was running Android 2.2, although we’d suspect that an upgrade to Android 2.3 will be coming soon. Other features include HDMI out and a micro USB port.
The device was expected to launch in the Summer of 2011, but today’s FCC filing might signal an earlier-than-expected launch date. Check out a video of the Stealth V at CES below.
