Samsung has received approval from the FCC for its SGH-T919 cell phone, with support for T-Mobile's 1700MHz 3G network in the United States.
The FCC filing reveals that the SGH-T919 will feature A-GPS in addition to a full internet browser and touchscreen display. The Test Reports confirm at least dual-band GSM (850/1900MHz) support and UMTS 1700MHz support, in addition to Bluetooth.
TmoNews.com is reporting that the T919 is the same as the F480, except for the missing front-facing camera and frequency band support. The device in the TmoNews photo above matches up perfectly with the wire-frame drawing in the FCC documents, which lends support to it being the actual T919, but it does not actually match up with the Samsung F480 at all - even though they look very similar at first glance. The T919's display has a widescreen aspect ratio, something that makes it taller and narrower looking than the F480, so any speculation about the T919's features based on the F480 is probably invalid.
