Samsung SGH-i727 passes the FCC, looks like a Galaxy S II with LTE
Samsung might have been quiet stateside for a while but it seems to have quickly caught up with announcements lately - three Galaxy S II variations, each for a different U.S. carrier hit us a couple of days ago. Among them was a 4.3-inch version of the S II coming to AT&T, but now another Galaxy device has passed FCC certification - the Samsung SGH-i727 comes with LTE radios supporting both AT&T’s 700MHz band and T-Mobile 1700MHz AWS bands, probably in anticipation of times when the new megacarrier AT&T-Mobile will use both frequencies.

The recently unveiled and AT&T-bound HTC Jetstream also packs dual LTE frequency support with both AT&T and T-Mobile bands. The SGH-i727 carries an FCC ID tag A3LSGHi727 and could also be an LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy R, but in either case we don’t expect this to hit AT&T soon as the carrier is yet to roll out a commercial LTE network.
