Verizon New Samsung Illusion: Coming September

Samsung are definitely not stopping at anything in terms of devices that they are bringing out. The news seems to be coming in frequently in relation to something else that has or is about to hit the market. It wouldn’t be a Samsung article unless the popular Galaxy S II wasn’t mentioned, but yes the smartphone that released two or so months ago is proving to still be unchallenged. So guys, the news today is of another smartphone coming out at the tail end of this month but may appeal more to you’re wallet.

Already mentioned in the past as a Viper, the new Samsung Illusion as its been changed to, will launch as a mid-range device. The news is still a little sparse in terms of specifications, but its rumored that the Illusion will come with a 320 x 480 pixel resolution screen, as to its actual size this still remains a mystery. It is more than likely going to run on Android’s 2.3 Gingerbread OS with a 3 or 5 megapixel camera and the latest TouchWiz. Speed wise according to Rue Liu over at Slashgear, the new Sammy will come with a 1GHz or 800MHz processor along with 3G support.

Expected to be announced on the big red Verizon, Samsung’s addition is rumored to be making its entrance on or around September 29th for as geeky-gadgets.com stated, an approximate price of $100 on a two-year data plan.

Currently Samsung have a huge range of devices to choose from, if a smartphone isn’t up your street, then perhaps a tablet device may be more appealing. Just yesterday, we gave you news that Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 8.9 has now been given a release date and price or why not opt for the bigger 10.1 model.

Despite ongoing battles with Apple, Samsung are still achieving huge volumes of sales, in particular the Galaxy S II already mentioned in our first paragraph. Although Verizon are out of the picture in terms of carrier (priorities lie with the Motorola Droid Bionic), others such as Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile will be offering their own US Galaxy S II models each with slight differences. Check out some of our other Samsung posts in which we’ve spoken about the smartphone “Note” or even the Celox or XCover.
