Samsung Galaxy W visits FCC with AT&T bands
The Samsung Galaxy W has just stopped by the FCC packing bands that are compatible with the AT&T network that suggests it could possibly arrive in the states sometime in the near future.

The Samsung Galaxy W has all of the makings of a mid-range smartphone when you consider the competition. It is an Android 2.3 Gingerbread device that packs a 3.7-inch display. Under the hood of the Galaxy W is a single-core 1.4GHz processor. That speed doesn’t shout mid-range but in a world ruled by other Android-powered handsets that are powered by dual-core processors it gets that title by default. The Galaxy W also has 512MB of RAM.

Samsung has included a 5 megapixel camera around the back of the device. As is common with most smartphones now this camera is capable of recording video in 720p HD. On the front of the device is a VGA camera to aid in video chatting. Once again, these specs don’t necessarily shout mid-range, but it still gets that title by default thanks to not only other manufacturers, but by some of the other devices of the Galaxy line.

The Galaxy W is packing the 850MHz and 1900MHz bands on board. That makes it a candidate for the AT&T network. Even though it is not a definite that this device will land on AT&T at some point, now that it has passed through the FCC keep your eyes peeled because it may be arriving soon.
