Verizon and Casio have been good friends in the last few years, releasing various handsets in the US. However, the two companies have launched only one Android smartphone – the G’Zone Commando. But this may change soon, and in a big way.
According to Droid-life, a reader of the website has recently participated in a focus group where a high-end Casio smartphone was showcased. Reportedly, the device features a large (possibly 4.5 or 4.7 inch) AMOLED display, LTE connectivity, NFC, quad-core processor, 8MP rear camera, and a 2MP front-facing camera. It’s said that the handset is “beautifully simplistic”, very thin and slightly curved (like the Galaxy Nexus), has no physical buttons on the front, and runs the latest version of Android (that can only be Ice Cream Sandwich).
Unfortunately, there are no images to show the alleged high-end Casio smartphone.
I’ve rarely seen Droid-life reporting something that didn’t happen eventually, so this quad-core ICS handset could indeed be out via Verizon at some point. We’ll let you know if we hear more details about it.
