Ahhh, nothing says new upcoming handset like a good old gray-scale sketch. Our pals at the FCC just put their seal of approval on a brand-spanking-new 3G smartphone from Samsung bound for AT&T some time in the near future. While little is known about Sammy’s i637 for the time being, it’s probably a safe bet to assume we’re looking at a nice big touchscreen and maybe a button or three beneath it — a form factor the company has most certainly grown fond of in recent history. Here’s what we know:

  • Windows Mobile
  • Quad-band GSM, dual-band UMTS / HSDPA
  • Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR
  • Wi-Fi
  • MediaFLO support (AT&T’s mobile TV service)
  • Camera, unknown resolution

It’s nice to see AT&T line up another MediaFLO-ready handset as it continues to push the service to a wider audience. More info regarding the i637 surely isn’t far off at this point it could turn out to be a spiffy little smartphone.
