Samsung Phone Swings By FCC; Is This The Galaxy Pro?

Samsung has just put one of its latest phones through the ringer of FCC-mandated testing, and today the agency has published those documents. Though the phone’s model number, B7510B, hasn’t popped up on our radar yet, we’ve got a sneaking suspicion that this could be the recently-announced Samsung Galaxy Pro.

The B7510B designation is more in line with past phones from the Omnia line, but surely we’re not looking forward to another of those on the way. The phone also popped up in certifications published by the WiFi Alliance recently, though those don’t offer much additional insight into the phone’s identity. We know its frequency bands, and that it has 802.11 b/g/n capabilities, but that’s about it.

Looking at the FCC ID sticker issued to the phone, it’s hard to ignore the similarities between the B7510B’s silhouette and the Galaxy Pro; they share nearly the same aspect ratio, and the Galaxy Pro’s headphone jack is in just the right spot. Maybe it’s too soon to say for sure, but that’s the direction we’re leaning towards.

The Galaxy Pro will be a BlackBerry-like QWERTY Android with the smaller 2.8-inch screen you’d be more likely to find on a RIM device. CTIA’s only two weeks away now, where we’ll hopefully learn more about this and other upcoming Samsung smartphones.
