Sprint’s Samsung Galaxy S II to be a 4G phone

Like all the other major US carriers, Sprint will have its own version of the Samsung Galaxy S II. We’ve seen the Sprint-bound S II in a couple of photos a few weeks ago, but we didn’t have too many details on it.

Now a handset called SPH-D710 has passed the FCC, and it most likely is the Galaxy S II for Sprint. Not because of its model number (all “SPH” handsets are headed to Sprint anyway), but because it clearly resembles the previously seen device, and it has WiMax 4G connectivity.

Other than that, we expect Sprint’s new Galaxy to come with a Super AMOLED Plus display, dual-core processor, and Android Gingerbread.

The SPH-D710 / Galaxy S II for Sprint may be released as Samsung Within, but we can’t be sure of that until the third largest US carrier says so. An official announcement should be out next month.
