Sneaky Samsung has been hard at work slipping new phones under the radar. Though last week, it announced the Gleam SCH-U700 with a bit of fanfare other handsets have yet to get such love. Yesterday the company's SCH-U410 popped onto Verizon Wireless' Web site. As we told you back in May, the SCH-U410 flip-phone design is modeled after the Samsung SCH-U340. But, while the SCH-U340 offered only the most basic features, the SCH-U410 is a bit more advanced. Inside you'll find Bluetooth, a VGA camera, and compatibility with the carrier's GPS service. The SCH-U410 is $29.99 with service. Verizon is also offering the previously announced Samsung Juke for a pre-order price of $99.99. The skinny phone should be out next month.

For AT&T, Samsung is now touting two new handsets. The Samsung SGH-A517 features a flip-phone design in basic black with such features as a megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and a music player with external controls. The SGH-A517 went on sale today for $49.99 with service.

Though it has yet to appear on AT&T's Web page, Samsung is listing the SGH-A127 under the AT&T section on its site. The SGH-A127 appears to be a basic phone for making calls. Features are limited to a a simple camera, messaging, and a Web browser, while the flip-phone design appears to be equally functional. On the other hand, the red color scheme makes it somewhat unique.
