Samsung Galaxy S II
Samsung has singlehandedly been keeping the FCC busy today, passing a handful of new devices through our favorite department of the government. First up, we've got the Galaxy S II, which got the A-OK for use on AT&T's bands (850/1900Mhz GSM/GPRS/EDGE/WCDMA/HSPA) today. This shouldn't be taken as confirmation that AT&T will actually be offering the Galaxy S II, but considering how widely distributed the original model was, I'm sure Ma Bell will eventually be selling some variation of the device. Also of note, it's been reported that Sammy will actually be creating two versions of the S II: one with their own Exynos CPU (codenamed 9100) and the other with a Tegra 2 (9103). The model spotted today is the GT-I9100, meaning we're likely looking at the Exynos-powered model.
Next up, we've got a device known simply by its model number: SCH-I708. This mysterious new handset appears to be a world phone that supports both GSM and CDMA networks, including the 3G networks used by both AT&T and Verizon here in the States. Outside of that, there's not a lot of info on the device, but we'll keep you updated.
Finally, Samsung pushed a device known as "SGH-T839" through the FCC. Seemingly destined for T-Mobile, the T839 sports compatibility with T-Mo's 1700MHz AWS band as well as a 480x800 display and an ARM 11 processor (clock speed unknown). There's also mention of an Android browser within the filing. There's speculation that this could be codenamed "Nightwing."
Obviously, there isn't a ton of new info available for any of these devices just yet, but with CTIA less than two weeks away, I wouldn't be shocked if we learn a lot more soon. Samsung may have a new Galaxy Tab to debut later this month, but I'm willing to bet that they'll make a little time for some smartphones, as well. Of course, we'll be there covering it all live, so be sure to stay tuned!
UPDATE: Looks like the SGH-T839, aka "Nightwing," is most likely the Sidekick 4G. Perhaps we're finally nearing a release? Cross your fingers.
