Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere II announced for Verizon

Verizon has announced that Samsung's latest physical keyboard-faring device will be hitting their 4G LTE network "in the coming weeks." The Galaxy Stratosphere II is the successor to Samsung's Galaxy Stratosphere that was released a little over a year ago, and it brings with it some welcome improvements.

The Galaxy Stratosphere II will come with a 4-inch Super AMOLED display, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4G LTE connectivity, NFC capability, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich running the show. This looks like it will be a pretty average mid-range device, seeing that Samsung doesn't think power users want physical keyboards from the looks of it.

Of course, the Stratosphere II will make for a great business phone as well. It's Global Ready and has built-in Virtual Private Network (VPN) connectivity capabilities. It also has numerous security features such as Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync and on-device AES 256-bit encryption, which obviously aims to protect your personal information, as well as company info.

The Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere II will cost $130 after signing a new two-year contract and after a $50 mail-in rebate, which seems like a decent price for a decent phone. We're positive that users still committed to physical keyboards will be eyeing this new device when it eventually hits Verizon stores in the next few weeks.
