One more handset runs Android 2.4, is it an improved Nexus S?

One more handset runs Android 2.4, is it an improved Nexus S?
Here are the facts - a handset with model number GT-i9023 paid a visit to the FCC with the AWS 3G band, which happens to be the spectrum T-Mobile uses. Moreover, Samsung GT-i9023 sounds pretty much like Samsung GT-i9020, which is, yes, you guessed it right - the model number of the Google Nexus S (while i9000 was the original Galaxy S). Furthermore, in a leaked video, a handset, which is strangely reminiscent of the Nexus S, has a baseband version starting with i9023. On top of that, it runs Android 2.4.

As we reported to you, this version of Android may be a minor Gingerbread update in the same way 2.1 updated Eclair 2.0, Ice Cream (Sandwich) or... a configuration error.

To make the mystery even bigger, this handset received both Wi-Fi Alliance and Bluetooth SIG certification and some European retailers are calling this handset a "Black Silver" Nexus S.

With all these leaked details, it's virtually certain that we'll have some kind of announcement for this Samsung GT-i0923 model very soon. What's your opinion on this interesting story?
