Samsung Mandel LTE Windows Phone may still be on its way to AT&T, despite not being announced yet
In December, we heard about AT&T’s plans to launch three new Windows Phones during CES – the Nokia Lumia 900 (check), the HTC Radiant, which turned out to be the Titan II (check), and the Samsung Mandel (MIA).
So what happened to the Samsung Mandel (or Mendel, as we’ve seen it referred to once before)? Well, it may still be headed to AT&T, regardless of the fact that it didn’t get unveiled at CES for whatever reason. Remember, Mandel/Mendel is just the codename, so this phone’s actual shipping name will be different.
The Samsung Mandel may have been spotted in a UserAgentProfile (UAProf) document by PocketNow. It looks like its model number will be SGH-i667. This is clearly a Windows Phone, since its browser is Internet Explorer. Unsurprisingly, the screen resolution is 800×480. The i667 also has LTE support, which was pretty much a given for the Mandel.
So while it’s not clear why the Mandel wasn’t unveiled this week, there still is some hope that it will make its way to an AT&T store near you in the coming months. After all, the Lumia 900 and the Titan II aren’t exactly going to be available immediately anyway.
