Leaked details of a new Samsung Galaxy S family phone, the Verizon Continuum, have emerged, and it’s a curious development from the carrier’s existing Samsung Fascinate. The Continuum SCH-i400 has twin touchscreens on its front – one regular panel that Android Central believe to be Super AMOLED, and a smaller, narrow OLED touchscreen at the bottom known as the “Ticker”.
That Ticker can be used for news, weather, RSS or other alerts, phone notifications, time/date and as shortcut controls; it’ll also work as a media playback control bar, and show new Facebook updates. Swiping from side to side shows different control panes.
Meanwhile there’s a 5-megapixel camera, externally-accessed microSD card slot, dedicated camera key and TouchWiz; Verizon have also switched out Google for Bing, which is likely to disappoint a few people. No word on how much this will cost, nor when it will arrive, but it’s certainly a curious device.
