Samsung Galaxy S could be headed for AT&T

There is not a lot of official info to go on here, but I always find it interesting when other sites try to connect the dots. Phonescoop recently spotted a new Android phone from Samsung (model SGH-I897) with a 4 inch AMOLED display and TouchWiz 3.0. They noticed the the bluetooth profile was very similar to that of the Galaxy S (GT-I9000) and speculated the device could be a variant of the original.

Samsung Mobile stated that they intend to launch the Galaxy S in the United States, but no carrier deals have been announced yet.

Our friend Greg from MobileCrunch went on to add that all Samsung phones which had model numbers starting with SGH and ending in 7 (like the Propel [SGH-A767], Propel Pro [SGH-i627], Mythic [SGH-a897], Impression [SGH-A877], Eternity [SGH-A867]) have all gone to AT&T.

Whatever the device actually turns out to be, it does look like AT&T will get some Android device from Samsung later this year. We have really high hopes for the Galaxy S so I’m crossing my fingers and hoping that AT&T does not try and cripple it like their first couple of Android phones.
