Samsung Android slider may be new model entirely

Samsung's mystery Android slider for AT&T may not be linked to the Galaxy S II after all. The design is now expected to be an "entirely separate" model. Even though it uses the S II's pre-release SGH-i927 model number, BGR was told this was a holdover and not the actual design.

The 2.6.36.3 kernel build, in spite of being labeled as "Gingerbread" for Android 2.3, comes from Android 3 (Honeycomb). Every shot seen so far has implied the device is using Android 2.3.

While the Galaxy S II's dual-core processor, eight-megapixel camera, and other traits may still hold on, it's suggested either that AT&T might consider it another variant or else a different model entirely. Samsung has pledged itself to having the Galaxy S II in the US sometime in August and might use that as its earliest opportunity to introduce the new hardware.
