Samsung GT-i9070 Galaxy S II variant hits the FCC, headed to China?
In late December 2011, Samsung’s GT-i9070 smartphone was discovered at the WiFi Certification site, as well as Samsung’s User Agent Profile site. Images of the device, above, leaked soon after, displaying what appears to be a variant of Samsung’s popular Galaxy S II smartphone. Other leaked specs for the GT-i9070 include a 5MP camera with LED flash, 6GB of internal memory, and Android 2.3.6. The device is also expected to feature a 1GHz processor, although the number of cores is unknown, and a 800×480 display.
While the exact specs of the GT-i9070 still remain unknown, we can now confirm that the device will support GSM/EDGE bands 850 and 1900, was well as WCDMA bands II and IV thanks to an FCC filing that was approved today. FCC filings make no mention of LTE support.
Samsung hasn’t officially unveiled the GT-i9070, but the device is expected to be launched in China. Interestingly, the GT-i9070’s GSM and WCDMA support will also allow the device to work on AT&T’s network in the US, however it’s unlikely that AT&T will launch the device since it already offers it’s own version of the Galaxy S II.
