First images of midrange Samsung 'Jasper' surface

Verizon's next Samsung smartphone may come in the form of the dual-core Jasper.

The first images of the Samsung SCH-I200 Jasper have appeared online, giving us a decent look at the midrange Android smartphone. This time, rather than the usual blurry "in the wild" photos, we're actually treated to press-ready renders of the front and back sides.

The details of the Jasper first surfaced a few months back when we heard that the it would include a dual-core 1.5GHz processor. Then, rumors over the next few weeks suggested that the handset would end up on Verizon's 4G LTE network and feature a WVGA (800x480 pixels) display. Beyond that, though, specifications are unclear.

As for a design, the Jasper calls to mind both the Samsung Droid Charge and the Nexus S. Factoring in the design and early details, it stands to reason that Verizon customers will soon be in for a low-cost alternative to the Galaxy S III.
