A new phone has hit the FCC, the as of yet unannounced Samsung R700. This is a dual-band CDMA device that supports EVDO 3G.
Gathering from the pictures released by the FCC, the Samsung R700 has a touchscreen, a camera, a headset jack and dedicated camera and lock keys.
It’s really unlikely that this is an Android-powered smartphone, since its buttons aren’t those required by Google’s mobile OS. As such, the R700 may just be a featurephone intended to get touchscreens into the hands of the (non-smartphone-touting) masses.
Based on a lack of AWS support, Phonescoop speculates that the Samsung R700 is probably headed to US Cellular. We’ll surely find out soon enough if that was the case.
