Recently uncovered Bluetooth SIG and GLBenchmark reports are shedding some light on a new Samsung smartphone headed to Verzion. The Samsung SCH-I200, known by the codename “Jasper,” looks to be an Ice Cream Sandwich handset running on the impressive dual-core Snapdragon S4 platform from Qualcomm. The 1.5GHz CPU was recently coupled with an LTE radio for the AT&T version of the HTC One X, and given the SCH-I200’s destination we would guess the same will apply here.
The model number suggests that the phone will fall into the mid-range category as a followup to the likes of the Samsung Gem and Illusion. This may seem surprising considering the device’s powerful processor, but not so much when we take the 854×480 display into account. 720p resolution is quickly becoming standard for high-end fare. Perhaps the unveiling of the Galaxy S III will provide a better perspective on the phone called Jasper.
