Samsung i5700 Spica and R860 approved by the FCC
The FCC has just approved two unannounced Samsung phones: the Android-powered i5700 Spica (aka Galaxy Lite) and the SCH-R860.
The Samsung i5700 was approved to work on the 850/1900 GSM and 850/1900 WCDMA bands, so you’ll be able to use it on AT&T’s network. Now let’s hope Samsung decides to launch the handset in the US.
Samsung i5700 should come with an AMOLED touchscreen display, Wi-Fi, GPS and a 3.2MP camera. A video preview of it can be found here.
According to the FCC, the Samsung R860 features 1700MHz AWS connectivity, as well as CDMA/EV-DO, so it’s likely headed to MetroPCS or Cricket.
As you can see, the R860 is probably a touchscreen phone. We’ll bring new details about it as soon as we find out more.
