Samsung SCH-i425 Godiva outed in benchmark tests, headed for Verizon

Like Lady Godiva herself, a phone dubbed the Samsung Godiva has been seen naked -- at least as far as benchmarks are concerned. The site GLBenchmark has revealed it has a 1.4GHz MSM8960 Snapdragon S4 SoC on board, along with Adreno 305 graphics, a 720p screen, Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and support for Verizon's LTE network. Its SCH-i425 model number points to the possibility that it might be the successor to the Stratosphere II (which was known as the SCH-i415) and could therefore sport a sliding keyboard, but that remains firmly speculative at the moment. Yet, seeing as how Samsung's mobile offerings at CES 2013 were practically non-existent, we're betting the Godiva -- unlike the Lady of Coventry's ride in the nude -- is more fact than fiction.
