T-Mobile Samsung Vibrant 4G apparently hits the FCC, might come with Android 2.3 Gingerbread

The FCC has recently approved a Samsung smartphone called SGH-T959V.

T-Mobile USA’s Vibrant has the model number SGH-T959, so we can only conclude that this SGH-T959V (which supports the carrier’s AWS network) is a new version of it.

Engadget believes this is the upcoming Vibrant 4G – and, well, it probably is, especially since we’ve heard it may be released by T-Mo on February 23, and it needs the FCC’s approval before that to happen.

In other Samsung Vibrant 4G news, BGR has a photo of the handset that allegedly shows it running Android 2.3 Gingerbread:

It would be really great for users to have the Vibrant 4G with Android 2.3 from the beginning. Because, you know, the original Vibrant still runs Android 2.1.

More details as we get them.
