You might know that Verizon has plans to introduce a CDMA version of the iPhone next year and the carrier is also expected to launch a number of devices (includes the Droid 2 Global, the Droid Pro and other much-anticipated devices) on November 11. Now, a new rumor is suggesting that the Samsung Continuum and the LG Vortex could be on its way to Verizon as soon as October 29th.
The Samsung Continuum is an Android smartphone and it was first seen a couple of months ago in a leaked Verizon roadmap for this fall. The Continuum, which is a Galaxy S device, was also spotted online in the form of leaked pictures.
The Samsung Continuum comes equipped with Super AMOLED dual-displays, and is rumored to pack the same 1GHz Hummingbird processor that currently powers the entire Galaxy S line and 336MB of RAM.
The Continuum will be running on Android 2.2 with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI on top of it. Below the 4-inch super-AMOLED screen, the device will feature a secondary ‘Ticker’ display. The ticker will provide users with access to primary phone functions like RSS updates and weather updates, which will help in improving the battery life of the device to a great extent.
The LG Vortex, which was leaked last month, is also an Android 2.2 device. Rumored specs of the device include a 3.2-inch HVGA touchscreen with a resolution of 480×320, a 600MHz processor and a 3.2 megapixel camera.
No word on the pricing of the handsets, but it is expected that both the devices will most likely be priced below the typical $199.99 price point.
