Samsung "Mandel" LTE Windows Phone runs through FCC

Samsung "Mandel" LTE Windows Phone runs through FCC
The first wave of LTE Windows Phones looks to be right around the corner. We've been expecting for a while that the first LTE Windows Phone will be the Nokia Lumia 900, but now it looks like Samsung will have an LTE Windows Phone coming sometime soon as well. 

Today, a Samsung device, model SGH-i667, passed through the FCC. This is expected to be the Samsung "Mandel" that we heard about just before CES. Not a lot is known about the device. Some have said that it will be a larger version of the Focus S, since the Mandel will have a 4.3" screen. Others are saying that it will likely be a Windows Phone version of the Samsung Galaxy S II. 

The only thing we do know, aside from the screen size, is that the device will be packing an LTE radio running on the 4 and 17 bands that are being used for AT&T's LTE network. The device also has the HSPA+ bands for AT&T, so it seems like a pretty good chance this will be an AT&T phone. Still no idea on a release date though.
