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?

Am I missing something or is the "Stratosphere" series completely redundant when they have the Galaxy series? With the "Rugby" series the you know a device will be rugged, a "Captivate Glide" series would imply a device has a slideout keyboard, and the "Note" (sub)series means a device will have a massive screen. From what I can tell "Galaxy" and "Stratosphere" mean nothing more than a flat slab Android-based Samsung-produced phone. The name "Stratosphere" name is really redundant and basically irrelevant, right?

Looks like a Galaxy 5

I had a Samsung Galaxy 5, and besides the copper/gold colouring, my phone looked identical to this one, including the back behind the cover. It really was not a very good phone.
Just wanted to correct that for ya!

looks like an upgrade to the stellar

Maybe they will call this a galaxy mini?
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.
