AT&T’s yet-unannounced version of the Samsung Galaxy S III has been spotted doing its thing at the FCC. It’s been assumed for a while now that SGH-i747 will be the model number hiding behind the Galaxy S III headed to AT&T. That model was first leaked when it got Bluetooth certified, because an image of the Samsung Galaxy S III was used in that certification. And Amazon also seems to think that it will be AT&T’s Galaxy S III.
Now, thanks to the FCC’s documentation, it’s been confirmed that the i747 will indeed be a phone sold by AT&T – its HSPA bands prove it. The i747 will have NFC and LTE support.
This probably isn’t what AT&T’s version will look like – it’s just an international Galaxy S III
Because of that LTE support, AT&T’s Galaxy S III will probably not come with Samsung’s own Exynos quad-core processor, but with a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core (just like AT&T’s HTC One X). However, that’s not 100% sure yet, so stick around – we’ll let you know when we find out more.
