A device listed as the Samsung Galaxy Stellar has appeared on an alleged Verizon retail rebate form. While we know Samsung plans to make a “major announcement” and unveil its newest Galaxy device on August 15, we’re pretty sure that this isn’t it.
It’s highly unlikely that Samsung’s next big device would be showing up in a carrier rebate listing, so what exactly is the Stellar? Not too long ago we got a look at a benchmark report for a Verizon-bound Samsung handset carrying the codename “Jasper.” Recently, purported images of this device were revealed, and gave us a possible idea of what to expect.
If in fact the Stellar and Jasper are one in the same, then the expected WVGA display, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor and Android 4.0 definitely place it somewhere above bargain bin status. We’re guessing 4G LTE support is also in tow. We’ll continue to keep an eye out for both names until this mystery is completely solved.
