After seeing Best Buy prematurely post a product page for the Samsung Galaxy Stellar, we now have information on a target launch date coming from Verizon’s internal system.  The date in question is September 6, which would make the Galaxy Stellar an affordable back-to-school smartphone option.

The leaked information also confirms its 4 inch display, Android 4.0, 3.2MP rear facing camera, 1.3MP front facing camera, 4G LTE connectivity, and a 1.2GHz dual-core processor.  There is also mention of a Starter Mode, which we have previously seen.  The Starter Mode will likely make the device easier to handle for Android newcomers.  According to a previous rumor, the Galaxy Stellar is set to launch for $99 on a two year contract.

If the September 6th leaked date for the Galaxy Stellar pans out, then I imagine we will see an official Verizon announcement come Monday or Tuesday.
