by Reads (5,393)

The FCC has approved the Samsung T939, which unconfirmed reports say will be released by T-Mobile USA as the Samsung Behold2. This is apparently one of several Android-powered smartphones on this carrier’s docket.

Samsung T939The T939 is no secret — it’s been approved by the Wi-Fi Alliance and now the FCC. Nevertheless, virtually nothing is known about it.

A slip-up by Samsung indicated that this device will run Google’s Android OS, and the FCC filing shows that it will be a GSM phone with HSDPA, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.

This government agency also revealed a basic diagram of this model (see image at left).

But so far, there has been nothing to confirm that the T939 will be released at the Behold2. Still, T-Mobile is expected to release an Android-based phone from Samsung, and this could be it.

A Sequel?
T-Mobile launched the original Samsung Behold late last year running a proprietary OS with the TouchWiz user interface.  It has a tablet shape with a 3-inch touchscreen, 5.0 megapixel camera, and GPS receiver.

A follow-up model would likely offer similar features.

It’s not known of Samsung is prepping a version of its TouchWiz user interface for Android, or if this model will use the standard one.

Also unknown is when this smartphone will be released, or at what price.
