Is this AT&T’s Samsung A627?
The recently leaked photo of the UTStarcom Knick is more valuable than it seems at a first sight. It shows not only the Knick, but also another yet unannounced QWERTY slider with AT&T branding. It resembles the i620, with landscape display, large circular D-pad and QWERTY when opened, so could it be the rumored Samsung SGH-A627?

We are still unsure, but it seems that unlike the European model, this one won’t run on Windows Mobile OS. Both this live photo and the rendering from a customer survey in May show what looks to be the software of a non-smart Samsung phone, instead of WM OS. Specifications include 1.3MP camera, GPS Navigation and video streaming.

Neither Samsung nor AT&T has announced the phone.
