Samsung SCH-I435 could be Verizon's Galaxy S4 mini
Based on information found in the Bluetooth SIG web site, a Bluetooth 4.0-equipped “Samsung SCH-I435” could soon arrive in the U.S. and become available through Verizon Wireless. How do we know this? Because Samsung-branded Verizon phones have traditionally used the SCH model designation in the past — the Galaxy S3 is called the SCH-I535 while the Galaxy S4 is called the SCH-I545 — so a phone called the SCH-I435 would fit right in. And not only that, but the “Geographic Availability” info of the phone clearly states North America.
Some people might think that there are a lot of other models better suited to be released under Verizon, be it due to hardware specs, software features, and other niceties. It’s also possible that this particular Samsung phone could be a different model entirely. In any case, we’ll be sure to update you on the latest info once we grab it, hopefully straight from Samsung itself.
