Samsung SCH-I425 shows up in benchmarks, could be Stratosphere III

It seems that every other day a mysterious Samsung device passes through GLBenchmark, and today is no different. Today a listing for the Samsung SCH-I425 popped up in GLBenchmark’s database, leaving many to speculate what this new handset is. While there isn’t too much the benchmark results tell us, there is a little bit of information we can take away from them.

Here’s what we can glean from the listing: this handset has been codenamed “Godiva,” will be running Android 4.1.2, and is destined for Verizon. It’ll have a screen displaying at 1280×720, but we don’t know how big the screen will actually be. There’ll be a Qualcomm MSM8960 clocked at 1.4GHz under the hood, and that will be working alongside an Adreno 305 GPU. As far as specs go, that’s all we know, so a fair amount of this handset is still a mystery.

However, we might know what product line this device belongs to thanks to its model number. The original Stratosphere had a model number of SCH-I405 while the Stratosphere II was designated the SCH-I415, so it stands to reason that the I425 could be the Stratosphere III. If it is, then it seems that the latest in the Stratosphere line is headed to Verizon, and it may not be very long before it arrives given the fact that Smasung is testing things out in GLBenchmark.

Of course, we won’t know for sure until Samsung makes an official announcement. That could come at any time, but don’t expect a lot of fanfare for the SCH-I425, since it seems to be a mid-range phone. Still, we’ll update you if we hear anything new, so keep it tuned here to SlashGear for more.
