Samsung 4G LTE Slider Makes a New Appearance, We’re Doubting This is Verizon’s Version of the Galaxy S II

“Please, oh please don’t let it happen,” is all I can seem to tell myself after seeing the latest photos of a Samsung slider that appears to be headed for Verizon’s 4G LTE network.  And what I mean by that is, please do not let this be VZW’s version of the Samsung Galaxy S II.  I understand that there will always be a place for phones with a full keyboard, just don’t let it be what we currently have as our top phone of all time.

Actually, we’re pretty sure (at least assuming) this device won’t be anywhere near the specs of a Galaxy S II and will likely be more of a keyboarded Fascinate (or like the Epic 4G) than anything.  So far Verizon has only released 4G LTE phones that were essentially built with last year’s tech, so it makes sense to assume that this one will also fall into that category.  All signs on our end are pointing towards the DROID Bionic being their first real LTE beast (dual-core, 1GB of RAM, etc.) that will be backed by a massive marketing campaign.  My guess, is that this phone will be their late July or early August 4G LTE filler while they prepare the world for the release of the Bionic (which may not drop until 9/1).

Oh, you can tell that this phone is running an old version of TouchWiz and not the one seen on the SGS2.  That Messaging icon and the shaded home dock are dead giveaways.  This specific phone also happens to be sporting a 5MP rear camera (SGS2 has 8MP) and a 1.3MP front cam (2MP on the SGS2).  So yeah, this isn’t looking at all like some mysterious dual-core slider beast from Samsung, but instead, just another rehash from 2010.

This device first popped up a couple of weeks ago and is now clearly in the hands of testers – we could be seeing it very soon.

Anyone interested in a 4G LTE slider?

    I’ve never understood people who dislike a keyboard. Actually use it and the level of precision is awesome, I don’t want to give one up which is why I was praying for D3 to be 4GLTE.

    Well I was told that it is hard to get a dual core and LTE to work properly. That is why Moto had a hard time getting the Bionic to work. So maybe that is why all these companies are releasing 2010 phones just so they can get something on the LTE network and next year put out better phones so they have time to test and prepare the phone and not have people angry and on edge like we all are on the Bionic!!

    I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, GrabPenny.com

    You gotta love how the Samsung Charge was completely omitted (intentionally) by the writer.
