The Samsung Stratosphere 2 is on its way to Verizon. The obvious successor to the original Stratosphere from last year has been seen in some internal documents yesterday. Though at that point we didn’t know much about the device, other than that it will have a 4-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen, and LTE support.
Today though we get to talk about almost all the specs of the Stratosphere 2. This will be an upper-midrange offering, and probably Verizon’s best specced smartphone to feature a QWERTY keyboard.

The Stratosphere 2 will indeed have a 4-inch touchscreen, but Super AMOLED Plus. That means no pentile matrix, pure RGB goodness for those of you who care. Unfortunately, a resolution isn’t confirmed, all we can tell you is that it won’t be HD. Our bets are on 480×800, though.
Furthermore, the handset will come with a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor (probably clocked at 1.5 GHz). We’ve seen this unit in many devices so far, and despite the fact that it’s ‘just’ dual-core, it can certainly hold its own against quad-core offerings.
Cameras: 8 MP rear with 1080p video recording, and 1.9 MP front-facing with 720p video. The Stratosphere 2 will launch running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and will be thinner than its predecessor.
An exact release date isn’t set, but expect this phone on the market within the next three months.
