An IntoMobile tipster recently got their hands on two sneaky buggers that are headed for Verizon and took some quick snaps and notes for us. The Fascinate – VZW’s flavor of the Galaxy S – is just what everyone expected it to be, with a 4″ WVGA Super AMOLED display, 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 5MP cam camera with 720p HD video capture, and Android 2.1 (Eclair) with Touchwiz 3.0. It looks similar to T-Mobile’s Vibrant, without the mercury band wrapping the edges.
Perhaps more interesting is a lower-level unit called the Gem, which also runs TouchWiz 3.0. Not much else is known about the handset, but word is that Gem will launch at the beginning of September and the Fascinate at the end. As IntoMobile points out, these apparently ready-to-rock gadgets are being pushed back for the launch of DROID 2 on August 12th.
