Samsung Galaxy Premier visits the FCC without LTE connectivity

Samsung Galaxy Premier visits the FCC without LTE connectivity
Back last month, we told you how the Samsung Galaxy Premier had visited the NCC in Taiwan, which is that country's version of the FCC. Now, the decidedly mid-range device has visited the actual FCC and as it turns out, does not offer 4G LTE connectivity. It does have the right bands that would allow it to work on AT&T's HSPA 3G network. But the device is expected to launch in Europe and Asia after all, and if it does come to the U.S., it would be as an unlocked import. In other words, we don't expect to see this model subsidized by a stateside carrier.

Ironically, when Samsung first registered the Samsung Galaxy Premier name back in March, we expected something definitely more high-end than the mid-range model that it turned out to be. Still, the device managed to score a decent 7,736 on theAnTuTu benchmark. On the other hand, its performance on the GLBenchmark site was nothing to brag about.

Regardless, we're sure that the Samsung Galaxy Premier will attract some buyers overseas for whom 4G LTE connectivity is not a necessity either by personal choice or the carrier's lack of such a pipeline.
