Verizon was supposed to release its new 4G phone, The Samsung Droid Chare owing to the major nationwide 4G LTE outage that Verizon had experienced yesterday. Verizon Droid Charge is going to be the second 4G phone to be launched on Verizon to take advantage of the network’s 4G coverage, the first phone being HTC Thunderbolt 4G which went for sale in March 2011. The 4G LTE network outage obviously didn’t have any effects on the launch of HTC Incredible 2 and Casio G’zOne Commando handsets that were launched on Verizon on the same day as per the schedule.
Verizon, later confirmed that the Droid Charge had indeed been delayed indefinitely and also mentioned that the interested customers can leave their contact details with the store managers so that they can be notified when the phone actually goes on sale.
The Android 2.2 Froyo powered Samsung Droid Charge boasts of an impressive 4.3-inch Super-AMOLED display, 1 GHz processor, a rear-facing 8 megapixel camera with LED flash along with a front-facing 1.3 megapixel camera, 4G LTE connectivity, Mobile Hotspot that lets you share a 4G connection with up to 10 WiFi devices (up to 5 if sharing a 3G connection), etc.
While we can’t comment on when the phone’s launch going to happen, all we can say is keep your wallet ready with $299.99 to get this 4G phone with a two-year contract with Verizon if you want to purchase the phone when it gets launched finally.
