AT&T version of the Samsung Galaxy S II meets with the FCC?

The Samsung model that visited the FCC had on board AT&T's 3G and HSPA frequencies

A Samsung handset, SGH-I777, visited recently with the FCC and indications are that this is the version of the Samsung Galaxy S II headed for AT&T, the Samsung Attain. Recently, we reported that the Sprint version of the phone, the Samsung Within, had received the green light from the Feds. With AT&T usually giving Samsung handsets the "SGH" prefix (the keyboard equipped mystery model that we showed you the other day, rumored to be a Galaxy S II variant for AT&T, had an alleged model number of SGH-i927) and with the device featuring the 850/1900 MHz GSM and WCDMA bands that AT&T uses for 3G/HSPA connectivity, this new model appears AT&T bound.

But is it the eagerly awaited Samsung Galaxy S II? We can't say for sure until Samsung and AT&T introduce the phone. What is interesting is that a runner who goes by the name emagrad has been taking the unit with him/her on runs from July 13th to July 27th. The owner of the device, doing the running in the state of Massachusetts, uses the AllSport GPS app on the phone and says that the device he/her is carrying is the SGH-I777. This could be a test unit.

I want thiss! I hope that it comes to AT&T by or before August 19th! If it does, I'm turning in my HTC Inspire 4G and getting this. If not, oh well. The Inspire is upgradable to Gingerbread, and hopefully Ice Cream Sandwich! But, this phone really does look amazing..
