Samsung SGH-T679 makes an FCC pit stop on its way to T-MobileAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
The FCC is at it again, tipping us off to an unannounced handset that could soon be making its way to store shelves. Today we've got the a Samsung-made handset that features the model number SGH-T679 and an AWS radio, both of which are good indications that this phone is destined for T-Mobile. As is usually the case with FCC filings, though, there's not many details available beyond that.
It's been suggested that the T679 may be a T-Mobile-friendly version of the Samsung Galaxy W, a phone whose backside lines up nicely with the outline from the FCC filing above (photo below). For those that are curious, the Galaxy W is packing a 3.7-inch 800x480 display, single-core 1.4GHz processor, 5-megapixel camera, 720p video capture, VGA front-facing shooter, 1,500mAh battery, and Android 2.3 beneath Samsung's TouchWiz UI. Obviously those specs aren't quite as impressive as what you can find on the Galaxy S II, but for anyone that feels that the GSII's 4.52-inch display may be a tad excessive, the Galaxy W could be a good option. Now the wait for the T679 to be officially announced begins.
