While everyone is waiting for a particular Samsung handset to finally arrive at Verizon (the Galaxy Nexus, of course), here’s another phone made by the South Korean company and bound to be released by the largest North American carrier: the Samsung SCH-U380, which has been unveiled by the FCC recently.
Unlike the Galaxy Nexus, the Samsung U380 isn’t a smartphone. It seems to be a basic touchscreen handset with a sliding QWERTY keyboard.
Verizon didn’t confirm the upcoming launch of the U380. However, there are signs which confirm this is a Verizon device, including a V Cast logo on the phone’s charger, and a rear that resembles the back of the Droid Charge.
We don’t know when the Samsung U380 will be available at Verizon, bu we can assume that it’s going to be pretty cheap on contract (possibly under $50).
