Samsung 'Godiva' pops up at the FCC with less than ideal timing

Samsung's 'Godiva' may be one of Verizon's worst-kept secrets of the past several weeks, with leaks involving both benchmarks and photos. There's even less of mystery involved now that the device has passed through the FCC's testing. Showing under its SCH-i425 name, the smartphone carries the requisite CDMA and LTE bands, including support for future AWS networks. GSM roaming and NFC are also lurking below the phone's surface. The approval is good news for Verizon, whose mid-range device is closer to reaching stores, although it might come too late to draw many customers' eyes -- when the Galaxy S IV is right around the corner, we have a hunch that most attention will be focused squarely on Samsung's high end.
