FCC Reports on the Samsung Galaxy S II, AT&T Bound?

At Mobile World Congress 2011 Samsung announced the Galaxy S II. Following its predecessor the Galaxy S, the second-gen model will sport many great new features. In terms of performance, the Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS will be powered by the dual-core 1GHz Samsung Exynos 4210, and the phone will pack 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal memory expandable up to 32GB via a microSD card. Read more information on this release in an earlier article we did back in February on MWC 2011.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) now has this new Samsung device in its database. Here are the Exhibit Reports for those of you interested in all the technical mumbo jumbo. Maybe I’m just a geek, but I love to scan through these reports, even if  I don’t understand them all. Within these reports, we find that this Galaxy S II is stuffed with the GSM frequency’s necessary to receive a spot in the line of AT&Ts Android devices. Let us know what you think of the device, or how you think it’ll stand up to the iPhone 4 if slated for AT&T.

His interest in mobile devices started with his Motorola Q9h which sported Windows Mobile 6.1. Unfortunately he was captured by the enemy and owned an iPhone3G for a short while, but that didn't last long through some dealings with the mobile carrier at the time. Finally he found a happy secure place among the Android community, starting with his HTC EVO 4G and hasn't looked back. All during his time with these various smartphones, he's dug deep into them, hacking away to get the best performance he could, all the while making his devices unique. As new Android devices are always on the horizon, he can't say what his next device will be, but he is Android for life, and his passion for all things Google will stand fast.

    Is it 16GB internal or 16GB micro SD?
    If its internal wouldn’t it be expandable to 48GB?

    T-Mobile uses the GSM network as well…

    The Galaxy S 2 will be a competitor to the iPhone 5 not the iPhone 4, of course it’s going to outmatch the 4 it’s better in almost every respect.

    Once the 5 comes out, then we’ll see which one really has the chops. I’m hoping it’s the S2 as that’s the next phone I’m looking @ getting!

    @Steve,

    While T-Mobile uses GSM as well, T-Mobile’s 3G/4G bands in the US are different than AT&T’s. Therefore, T-Mobile won’t get this variant of the phone. If another variant comes out that has T-Mobile’s 3G bands then TMO may get that one.
