FCC Filing Reveals Samsung Galaxy S II and its Frequencies

It seems that the Samsung Galaxy S II is coming to North America, and as per the usual rumor hunting, there is a new FCC filing. It shows the Galaxy S II with North American 3G flavors (namely HSPA on 850/1900 MHz).  We don’t know when it is coming or to which carrier.  Based on previous experience, we think it is probably not coming to AT&T.  Instead it seems likely that it will go to Rogers, Bell, or Telus in Canada.  Of course, if you buy it from Canada you can use it on AT&T in the States.

Will the Samsung Galaxy S II have different flavors per carrier again?

Remember the Galaxy S (I)?  The Galaxy S became several different phones in North America, so all we know is that it will be somewhat similar to the Galaxy S II we heard about earlier.  There is a user manual that was included with the listing, but it is not available until September 6.  Basically, don’t expect this phone soon.

The regular Galaxy S II is expected to have:

  • A dual core processor (unclear whether they will be NVIDIA Tegra 2 or Samsung’s own Exynos chip)
  • 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Plus display
  • Dual cameras- 8 MP with flash and 2 MP front
  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread
  • 8/16 GB onboard storage

Samsung Mystery World Phone also appears at FCC Filing

Interestingly enough, there is another phone from Samsung that showed up in the FCC filings.  This device is one we have not heard anything about previously.  It is a developer device, and is marked as not for sale.  However, it is capable of GSM and CDMA connections and both HSPA and EV-DO.  That would be one super phone!  The model number for that phone is Samsung i708.
