Samsung leaks a picture of the Illusion for Verizon
Earlier this month we first saw a leaked render of the Samsung Illusion, which was supposedly a new Android-powered smartphone headed to Verizon. Back then an image of the Pantech Breakout also leaked, and we’ve since heard a lot more about that device than the Illusion. But Verizon does seem set to launch the Illusion in the (very) near future too.
We say that because Samsung has decided to go ahead and post an official render of the Illusion on its Flickr account, thereby effectively leaking the handset itself. Now that’s not something you see every day. This can only mean one thing though: launch is near. A phone maker wouldn’t even dream of uploading pictures of an upcoming device if it wasn’t very close to hitting the streets.
Speaking of hitting the streets, the Samsung Illusion is rumored to do just that on or around September 29. It apparently has a Sustainable Product Certification for being eco-friendly, and the model number is SCH-I110. As for specs, previous rumors indicated it should have an 800 MHz to 1 GHz single-core processor, a 3.2-3.5-inch 480×320 touchscreen, and a 3 to 5 MP camera. In other words, this will be a midranger. Knowing that, we can safely assume that Verizon won’t be pricing it at more than $100 with a new two-year contract, for asking anything more than that would probably mean that the Illusion won’t sell very well.
Anyway, we’ll keep you posted on any further developments involving the Samsung Illusion for Verizon.
