New Samsung phone (Galaxy S?) coming to T-Mobile

When we reported the Samsung Galaxy S could be headed to AT&T many of our readers groaned and expressed their desire to see the phone on T-Mobile. New evidence suggest they might get their wish.

Unwired View has spotted a new Samsung phone (SGH-T959) that features Android, TouchWiz 3.0, and a 4 inch AMOLED display. If those specs sound familiar that is because they match up with the upcoming Galaxy S. The device has already received its Wi-Fi certification and Bluetooth SIG approval.

All Samsung phones that begin with SGH-T are designated for T-Mobile so this leads us to believe that some version of the Galaxy S is a good candidate to appear on the Big Magenta.

The Bluetooth SIG has just approved the Samsung SGH-T959.

    made my day! thank you!

      At least, there’s a light on that pathway, that this phone wont land only on that deadlast carrier AT&T.

    Well I’ll be a monkeys uncle, that’s really good news 8-)

    Hoo-freakin-rah! It’s about time! I’m not going to hold my breath waiting for it, but I’m excited. I might actually be able to justify buying this one if I can upgrade and keep my family plan.

    Any idea on how long past the Bluetooth certification that the phone will actually show up on T-Mobile?

  • Jimmy13

    Finally a reason to keep T-Mobile. I was afraid I was going to be stuck with sub par phones for ever.

  • Drew

    Idk, I’m still not sold on Samsung’s Android phones but this is a step in the right direction.

    More elite HTC and Moto phones please

      Yeah i have yet to see a good samsung android phone. Their biggest selling point on the behold 2 is the freaking amoled screen. I would give up the spud screen to get rid of the crappy touch wiz interface with that dumb cube button. Stick to htc and motorola for a good android device.

    Great news! Hopefully it comes true…

  • http://Website joka

    Booooo! This sucks att needs this phobe…tmobile=wack!

  • http://Website hiddengopher

    ehh, I’m happy with my Nexus One.

    I’m not a big fan of anything that isn’t HTC honestly.

    T mobile. Employee told me the behold 3 will be coming out this summer. And that it’ll feature the 1ghz snapdragon with a 4″ display. So maybe its the behold 3??

  • http://Website erick

    isn’t the sgh t939 the behold 2?

    • http://Website erick

      oh never mind, I guess it was just a typo

  • http://Website JD

    Just a little bit of investigation shows that the model number of the Behold 1 was T919, Behold 2 was T939 and this one is listed as T959 so it could in fact be renamed as Behold 3 and definitely be coming to Tmobile.

  • Killa

    Well that sounds good to me! I won’t be in line for an upgrade for a while so hopefully (but doubtfully) I’ll have a little extra cash by that time.

  • StabMasterArson

    I’ve been lurking on this site for a while now, waiting and hoping that a good Android phone would show up T-Mobile in time for when I’m eligible to upgrade (the middle of next month). Looks like I’ve found my phone. I’ve been lusting after the N1, but lack of ability to integrate it easily into my family plan has been a major turn off.

    depends on your perception.

    I’m going to be upgrading phones soon and trying to figure out what my options will be. Guess I need to do a lot more Samsung Galaxy research now.

    My boss is supposed to get one of these from Samsung in the next 30 days. Can’t wait to have a look.

  • http://Website betchplz

    Samsung phones have notoriously bad reception and I confirmed that with a Behold II. Color me unimpressed to see this coming to T-Mobile. Can’t we get a Motorola powerhouse on T-Mobile?

  • http://Website the boss

    the more i think i about maybe its the memoir 2 with andriod hahaha Samsung Memoir T929 and this one is T959?
