Samsung Droid Charge Verizon 4G LTE: No Longer Stealth

At OSM we like to bring our readers what they want and one thing that we know is always popular is the news of a new Droid smartphone coming to Verizon. Only a week ago we gave you a roundup of upcoming Verizon Droid-branded handsets but little did we know that we were about to hear of another, the Samsung Droid Charge 4G LTE smartphone.

Our roundup included the impressive much-awaited Motorola Droid Bionic and you may be interested in our look at the Bionic vs. the HTC Pyramid and we also told you about the HTC Droid Incredible 2, the Droid X 2 and the Motorola Droid 3. However if you had decided which handset appealed to you, you now have another to take into consideration.

Over at Engadget, Sam Sheffer brings the news that the unnamed Samsung handset from CES 2011, will in fact be called the Samsung Droid Charge or the SCH-i510 to give it it’s less nifty name. The Droid Charge is packing an 8-megapixel rear camera plus front-facer and a Super AMOLED Plus display, all with that 4G capability, so it sounds pretty decent. The operating system is not yet confirmed but it was seen previously running Android 2.2 with TouchWiz. Engaget also says there’s no news yet on release date or price.

Now this is where it gets a bit confusing as another article over on Android Police, sourced from Droid Life, tells us that the Samsung Droid Charge was previously being referred to as the Droid Stealth and that’s a phone we’ve previously given specs for and earlier today OSM’s own Maddy Rowe gave a release date of April 7 and pre-ordering details. In fact we’ve just taken another look and an update does confirm that the correct name is indeed the Droid Charge, so everybody can stop calling it the Droid Stealth. Talk about confusing!
