Samsung SGH-I547 Waves “Hi” To The FCC, Apparently Getting Ready For AT&T LTE
There have been a bunch of new Samsung Androids popping-up in FCC paperwork lately. We’ve looked at a couple Verizon models, as well as a couple more for Sprint. Today, we can add one more to the list, although this one seems to be destined for AT&T: the Samsung SGH-I547.
The FCC docs show frequency coverage on AT&T’s primary voice and 3G bands, as well as a glut of LTE support: bands 2, 4, 5, and 17. Add WiFi, Bluetooth, and NFC, and this looks to be one well-connected smartphone.
We pulled up a User Agent Profile for the SGH-I547, which confirms we’re dealing with an Android model. That document also mentions a WVGA display, like we’re similarly expecting for some of those Sprint and Verizon phones; it looks like Samsung is planning a new push into mid-range territory with these.
We’re still curious just what chip might power the SGH-I547, but based on what we know about those other Samsungs, a dual-core S4 wouldn’t be unheard of. One thing we can work out from the paperwork is that this Android should support storage expansion via microSD; for more, we’ll just have to be patient.
