    Correct me if I'm wrong, but this looks like GSII and a bunch just got uploaded on FCC today - FCC ID: A3LSPHD710

    I googled and found that SPH-D710 was released in 2004 or 2005, but this definitely doesn't look like the old slide phone.

    I'm not so much keen on radio band and what not, so please don't get pissed if I'm wrong............

    BTW, the test report says WiMax and pre-production.
    That camera bezel and speaker hole placement looks exactly like the one in THIS LEAKED PIC

    That's what I thought. Also attaching dimension.
    Do you have a link on the FCC site? I usually check PhoneScoop for FCC approvals but they don't show any Samsung phones clearing today.

    looks like i'm not the only one that's been obsessively checking the FCC. at least i'm not alone.
    You might be seeing the SGH-D710 in your search results, which I think is an older device. I found a reference to the SPH-D710 HERE which talks about a mysterious SPH-D710 topping some Nenamark benchmark. This might be the prototype for Sprint's SGS2.

    Good find. There's a lot missing from your typical FCC clearance documents, but something is definitely going on here. This stuff posted up on the FCC site today.
    the lot missing part is because things like pictures of the device and so forth are usually kept confidential for 6 months from the filing date.

    Now that we know the model number I did a search and found this interesting ...

    Nenamarks and the mysterious Androids - Android Forums

    Of note:

    1. The current top of the list is the Samsung SPH-D710. Obviously it is a Galaxy SII type phone but why this numbering is a mystery. So while it has the Galaxy SII guts its not exactly a Galaxy SII. Added to the mystery is the phone is testing with Android 2.3.4, which means it debuts with this version at least or some higher version. It also gives you an idea the kickup the Galaxy SII gets when it goes to 2.3.4.

    Looks like a tester ran the NenaMark benchmark on it a few times heh. Also, I think this crushes any rumors that the US SGS2 variants would come with a Tegra 2. Well for Sprint's version anyways.

    In that article it says that the phoneposted is biggier than the GSII thats out now. I was hoping Sprint would get a tab/phone.AS cool and great as that would be i was the Exnyos Chipset. Hopefully it will have or I maybe waiting a while for my next phone.

    You are right. I initially looked at this page (https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/eas/GetApp...tml?id=1509665) and only saw the two CDMA bands. Good find!

    How odd that the CDMA 800 band isn't listed in the main report but instead has its own report. Also, it's not actually labeled CDMA 800 but by channel number. I assume that has to do with the way iDEN devices operate in that frequency range? And no, I'm not suggesting the Within is a Nextel phone.

    Anyway, good news regardless. This phone is shaping up to be a very nice device. Now we just have to see how awful TouchWiz will be on it (not a fan of that iPhone wanna-be skin).

    LP or one of the other launchers should do away with TW issues if you don't like it?

    I took my EVO3D back and I am living on a BB Tour until this comes out...can't happen fast enough!

    Unlikely if not flat out "it won't". Check this out ... Nena Innovation AB - NenaMark results

    One of the testers obviously ran this phone on NenaMark, and the GPU shows as ARM Mali-400 MP, the same as the international version of the Galaxy SII.

    I'll be picking this up as soon as it's released but I am a little disappointed that it doesn't appear to have NFC. I would think all high-end phones coming out now should have that.

    Can't wait for this phone. I personally couldn't care less about NFC. There aren't many places that use it and I can't of one place that I use that has it.

    Probably in a couple years NFC will be more prevalent. Though Apple isn't using the technology so who knows.
