Samsung i425 Aimed At Verizon
Updated: added NFC detail
Documents recently made by public by the FCC confirm that a rumored Samsung SCH-i425 phone is designed for Verizon. Although the model number suggests a Stratosphere II successor, internal photos in the FCC filing confirm that the i425 does not have a physical keyboard. The i425 is an Android phone that supports 4G LTE on Verizon's 750 MHz and 1700 (AWS) frequency bands. It also supports GSM and WCDMA for global roaming, front and back cameras, NFC, and a memory card slot. The i425 has not been announced.

Stratosphere II - Does the naming even mean anything?
Looks like a Galaxy 5
looks like an upgrade to the stellar
Hopefully it'll be free after rebate. The only problem with the stellar is it doesn't have a flash and the camera is only 3 MP. This will be a welcome addition. We need to remember that budget phones are just as important, if not more so, than flagship phones.
