Sometime a couple of months ago, the Bluetooth SIG’s device certification listings depicted an unknown Android-powered Samsung smartphone known as the SCH-I200, also known as the Samsung Jasper. Well, it seems that this particular smartphone has arrived at the hallowed hallways of the FCC, and upon receiving approval, we also discovered that it will feature Verizon LTE support – and that can only mean one thing, the Samsung Jasper is being prepared for a Verizon Wireless release. No idea on whether the final release name will be called Jasper or not, as this is most probably its code name, but anything that picks up approval from the FCC can only mean one thing – it is ready to rock and roll among the masses.
When it arrives, it will feature a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor alongside Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as the operating system of choice. Unfortunately in this day and age, the WVGA display will definitely not have it jive with the best of the best, so you can forget about this occupying the higher echelons of the smartphone world. No idea on how much it will cost when it arrives though, but perhaps it might even be free on a new 2-year contract.
