Samsung Stratosphere II shows off its keyboard in new leaked imagesAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
The Samsung Stratosphere II first popped up on our radar thanks to an entry in Verizon's systems that leaked out at the tail end of August. There hasn't been much information on the device since, but today some official-looking renders of the QWERTY-packin' handset have made their way online. Posted by @evleaks, the images show the Stratosphere II with its keyboard exposed (and lacking the physical Android navigation keys that the original Stratosphere had) as well as the phone's backside, complete with Verizon and 4G LTE logos. Also included in this leak is the Stratosphere II's purported model number of SCH-I415, up from the original Stratosphere's SCH-I405 identifier.
This leaked render of the Stratosphere II's face appears to line up with the blurry, dark image that we saw in the report back in August, as does the I415 model number. When it comes to specs, we're still without many of the finer details of the Stratosphere II's feature set, though it has been said that it includes a 4-inch Super AMOLED display. There's also 4G LTE and a physical keyboard on there. Obviously there's still be a bit of mystery surrounding the Stratosphere II's specs and availability, but with a hardware QWERTY bolted on, the device is likely to garner at least some attention whenever it does finally arrive.
