Samsung Stratosphere Launching October 13: Full Specs and User Manual Available

The Samsung Stratosphere stopped being a mystery long ago, but after a couple of missed release dates, we now have the official one thanks to our friends at Verizon.  You can purchase this mid-tier 4G LTE slider next week on October 13.  Pricing has not been announced, but we are expecting or assuming at least, that it will swing in around the $149 mark on 2-year contract.

We have full specs (again) for you below, as well as the user manual and some side shots.  

Download the user manual here.

A look at the device from all angles:

Cheers ___ and A!

    Well this once again proves my point of no quality control, and you will just whore yourself to the highest bidder. I can’t wait to hear about the newest Cricket phone that you’ll undoubtedly be pimping next. Right G-Money? I wanted to make sure to appeal to your suburban-wanna-be-gangsta mentality, since you continually look like moron when you post your retardbonics on here.

  • bleh, nobody cares about this Verizon. we want the damn nexus prime.

    It looks proper for the midrange people. We all know it will be plastic.

    I’m just glad there’s an LTE slider finally…if this thing had CM it’d be great.  In the mean time my Droid 2 Global with CM7 is still fantastic.  Not everyone wants GIANT screens on a slab phone, I value having a keyboard, but wish they’d make more 3.7″ sliders at the same res, like the OG Droid and Droid2 :-

  • Jeesh, I guess some people are all about the megahertz and don’t buy their phone to serve a function. I have been waiting for this phone to come out for a while. So what if it is 1Ghz? So is the Droid 2. So far, the Droid 2 has ran every program I have put on it. Even games. My Thunderbolt can as well. Until I find an app or a game that requires twelve cores or 700 gigahertz or 15 GB of RAM, I think this will be a good, solid phone.

    I just hope there is enough interest to get CM7 on it.

      I do wish it came with 1GB of RAM instead of 512MB but other then that its a pretty solid mid level phone. 1 GHz single core is pretty good as well for most basic smart phone uses (ie: Facebook, music listening, etc). Hopefully this thing will have a decent battery life.

      I do agree, there are a lot of people that will buy this device. Htc bliss wil sell good as well.

  • This is like Samsungs version of the Motorola Droid 2, with LTE.  This is so totally last year, like duuuhhh!!

      Perhaps, but at least they put 4g in it unlike the Droid 3.  That was very disappointing. 

  • shouldnt this phone have come out before the d3?
    i’m not talking about release date wise.. tech wise.. i think it could have came in a good month before the d3 and it would have still been a mid range-ish device.

      Except it is actually better than the Droid 3.  The D3 didn’t even bother to put in 4g which is a big deal to those of us that have it. I would hate to go back to slow 3g. Plus it has a better screen.

        I agree let with one core its better than dual core 3g.

  • Ooooh Verizon you spoil us with phones like this.

  • Me

    This what the prim should have been j/k j/k

  • if you buy this, you must not really care about keeping up with the latest

    • Or on a budget

      Not everyone does. There are a lot of people happy with a phone that has a keyboard. Not everyone is like you and feels they need the latest and greatest.

        You said something good at last lol.

    • Mctypething

      Yeah, I imagine that concept. People exist that don’t need the absolute best thing out there.
