Samsung is in the news again and this time round it's not about the impending Galaxy Note 3 or Galaxy S4 smartphones that have thrust the company into the spotlight, but a new Galaxy device, codenamed Godiva. Reports are clamoring that Samsung has yet another mysterious device in the works, and it has popped up on the GLBenchmark database.

The yet-to-be-announced Godiva or "SCH-I425" is apparently headed for U.S. carrier Verizon and has support for its LTE network on board.

The GLBenchmark results do not disclose the screen size of the smartphone but indicate that it will have a 1280 x 720 pixels resolution. The SCH-I425 or Godiva also seems to house a 1.4GHz MSM8960 SoC, but the presence of Adreno 305 graphics seems to suggest that the chip may be different. The smartphone is also reported to run on the Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean OS.

The SCH-I425 model number hints that the mysterious phone in question could well be the Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere 3. Previous iterations viz., Galaxy Stratosphere I and Galaxy Stratosphere 2 sported SCH-I405 and SCH-I415 model numbers, respectively. The Galaxy Stratosphere I released in 2011, whereas the Stratosphere 2 made an appearance on Verizon as recently as Nov. 2012.

If the naming pattern is anything to go by, we could well be looking at a new mid-range Android smartphone offering from Verizon, possibly the Stratosphere 3.

Meanwhile, we'll just have to wait till more details on the Stratosphere 3 aka. Godiva emerge.
