FCC filings are a treasure trove of information; something that tech bloggers keep scouring through to find details, specs and images of new releases. It seems that Engadget has stumbled upon the Samsung GT-i9023 which just passed FCC testing.
It’s definitely not the Vibrant 4G, as the design is much more rounded. The outline of the phone looks familiar to the Google Nexus S (i9020). A video was leaked last week which had the Nexus S running Android 2.4 (which will likely be called Ice Cream Sandwich). It could very well be the Samsung GT-i9023. It will support HSPA+ connectivity, but the other specifications will be the same as the Nexus S.
Some European retailers have also been listing the i9023 as a “Black Silver” Nexus S, so it’s highly likely that the i9023 is just the Nexus S with a few upgrades.
