A new Samsung device just surfaced at the Bluetooth SIG’s site, showing off its Bluetooth 4.0 support. It’s identified as model SGH-T779, suggesting a home on T-Mobile, but just what hardware might this be?
Digging through the paperwork a little more deeply, other Samsung models numbers start popping up. It’s associated with models SGH-I497 and SCH-I705, which are clearly marked as Samsung tablets. OK, now we’re starting to narrow things down a little.
The I705 is the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 for Verizon, but the I497, at least according to the FCC docs that reveal its AT&T LTE bands, is way too big to be a seven-inch tablet, suggesting it could be the Tab 2 10.1. Unfortunately, not having all those model numbers point to the same hardware is going to make it tricky to ID the the T779.
It definitely looks like a Galaxy-series tablet, but other than that, we can’t say with much certainty.
