Remember the Samsung Galaxy Z, the slightly downgraded version of the Galaxy S II seen at the end of last month? It turns out that the Z’s model number is i9103 (since GSM Arena says so), and it also turns out that the smartphone has been approved by the FCC just recently.
According to the documents published by the FCC, the Galaxy Z i9103 features 850 / 1900 MHz UMTS connectivity – perfect for a possible release in the US via AT&T. Back in March, the original Galaxy S II i9100 has also passed the FCC with AT&T-friendly UMTS bands, so we’re not yet sure which one of these will get the chance to be launched by the second largest US carrier. Of course, it could be neither of the two.
Unlike the Galaxy S II i9100 (which was sold in more than 3 million units in just 55 days), the Samsung Galaxy Z i9103 comes with an Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, a smaller 4.2 inch S-LCD screen, and a 5MP camera.
