Could see launch as early as Mobile World Congress
Samsung's latest sub-sized smartphone, the Galaxy Mini 2, has shown at the FCC for approval. The phone, a successor to the Galaxy Mini, was first revealed last week, possibly code-named Jena. It is expected to carry an 800MHz processor and run Android 2.3 (Gingerbread).
The submission to the FCC has the phone supporting both 850MHz and 1,900MHz GSM/GPRS/EDGE radios, indicating it could be compatible with voice and 2G data on AT&T and T-Mobile.
The phone's appearance at the federal agency is a strong indicator that the company wants the device to work in the US, though not necessarily for a formal launch. An introduction at the upcoming Mobile World Congress later this month is still a strong possibility. [via Engadget]
