Samsung SPH-M810 passes the FCC, could be Instinct Mini

The FCC has recently approved the Samsung SPH-M810, a phone which seems to be the rumored Samsung Instinct Mini that should be released by Sprint in the near future.

According to FCC’s documents, SPH-M810 is a “cellular / PCS CDMA phone with Bluetooth and EvDO”, thus it can obviously run on Sprint’s network.

Moreover, a member of the Howard Forums says the SPH-M810 is “basically an Instinct, but smaller” and that it will be sold under the name of Instinct Mini.

Well, the image made available by the FCC does show a handset that kind of resembles the Instinct:

Samsung Instinct Mini is said to have about the same features as the original Instinct, plus Push-to-Talk (PTT) capabilities.

According to some previously-leaked info, the Instinct Mini might be launched in mid-March. Sprint currently sells the Samsung Instinct for $129 with a 2-yr contract agreement, so the SPH-M810 Mini could be offered for a similar price.

We’ll have more on this as soon as something official comes up.
