Samsung Hercules (T989) and AT&T Variant (I927) Make Their Way Past The FCC

The Samsung Hercules (T989), T-Mobile’s variant of their Galaxy S II device, was discovered making it’s way through the FCC today. What’s of particular interest is the fact that the device will be equipped with NFC (Near Field Communications) as seen in the filing above. Not to be outdone by T-Mobile, AT&T’s own version of the Galaxy S II (I927) also made a surprise appearance in a filing of its own (pictured below). Strange seeing how I could have sworn the I927 already had an FCC filing in August.

Both devices have been rumored to launch soon on their respective carriers and unveiled in a Galaxy S II event being held on August 29th in New York. Today’s FCC filings just bring us one more step to both the device’s inevitable release and Galaxy S II world domination.

Thanks, Jamil!

    Is the phone wearing a cape?

  • Andrew Maddux

    Samsung has really hurt themselves with the unthinkably long delay in releasing this phone. The specs are indiscernible from the competition’s — and with the iPhone 5 coming out soon — Samsung’s window of opportunity is very small.

      Agreed. And we all know what’s coming just in time for christmas. :)

    You show the i927′s FCC paper, but what about the T989? Did it have T-Mobile AWS bands only, or does it have AT&T 3G compatibility as well?

    • Boondoc

      Yeah it has Tmobile AWS bands. there’s been some problems with the FCC database lately where if you try to go see the actual pdf links you get an error page but if you look at the first linked picture it has AWS WCDMA bands.
