Samsung Nexus S Hits FCC Again With New Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS Antennas

Nothing terribly exciting in this round of the Nexus S news cycle but Engadget discovered a new Samsung Nexus S filing to the FCC. Running under the Samsung GT-i9020T model, the filing lends a little more credence to the release date being sooner rather than later. The real question is, were these additions the cause of the rumored delay or is there something else we don’t know?

    i just hope it is a hspa+ device otherwise my hopes will be let down

      agreed

        i 2nd this

          Why would you even want a dual core on the phone~ that is going to probably drain even more battery.

          Are you going to that taxed having to open applications .5 seconds later than whatever it is we have now ?

          How about HSPA+ UMA+, Great Battery life and frequent updates.

          There’s some misconceptions with dual core processors. A lot of people ask the question you just asked about battery life being a concern, when the architecture is actually supposed to use the battery less, because of the parallel design. The overall speed isn’t the entire story. Thats why people have different feelings about dual cores; I dont know which is accurate though. The only thing certain is that battery life technology is the last thing that hasn’t advanced in this generation, amongst all the GBs and the WiFis and even the HSPA+. I THINK that is supposed to change sometime around the end of this fiscal year, but don’t quote me on that.

    Does this have the dual core processor or not? Or am I thinking of a different phone?

    • http://twitter.com/FR35HM1NDZ Jamille Browne

      Yeah thats why it wasn’t released last month because they were switching for Orion Processor of which is Dual-Core lets just hope its HSPA+ compatible. at least 14.4 compatibility.

  • Guest

    HSPA+ & a dual core chip!! We need both!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/MatthewSki Matthew Kalinowski

    when this phone come out its going to be beast i hope it can use that hspa+ to the fullest unlike the g2 and the mytouch which caps at 14.1 which is still fast i get like 8 down on mytouch but my friend gets like 18 on his t-mo rocket stick for his computer and i want to see those speeds on a cell phone and what better phone to have that then a dual core nexus s Googles new face of android

  • Vibrant Addict

    I hope this wasn’t single core Nexus S info, and not the new one.

    The use of ‘gentlemen’ bothers me in that. Are there really no women working there, or is that just plain ignorance? Sheesh.

    • Famous By Marital Association

      Pre-tensing formal documentation, especially in the submission of legal (and technical, etc.) documentation and official filings is a common practice. Almost everything prepared by someone with formal training, and in template form uses the verbage “gentleman” in the preamble. It’s an old adage from the common-law dialect and dictation grammar constructions, and to this day I still see correspondence with “Gentlemen” being used even when it is prepared by a women and addressed to a woman.

  • Kpc

    Don’t know how accurate this is, but here is some info on the HSPA+

    • mikeyo

      the newer chip might support it

  • http://twitter.com/Knownoutcast Black/ #NT

    I’ve given it about 3weeks to release more solid info as far as purchase, specs, etc. I have a family plan and can’t afford to purchase ooc so if I can’t upgrade w/ my family plan, no HSPA+, and other problems, I’m passing

  • going_home

    But still no mention of HSPA+ …..
    I wonder how many tech savvy TMO die hards will spend $500+ on
    a phone that cant make use of the new faster connection ?
    In my estimation, leaving HSPA+ out of the equation would not be a good gamble for Google to make.

    :-D

    • http://twitter.com/FR35HM1NDZ Jamille Browne

      It still can make use of HSPA+ because on average the speeds are 5mbs which is within 7.2 HSPA

    • Symsoul

      Actually, the HSPA+ speed that everyone is talking about (21Mbps) was only a software upgrade, meaning that those with non-HSPA+ phones could still take advantage. At least, that’s what many people had commented on in these forums a few months ago. It’s the next iteration of HSPA+, 42Mbps, when you’ll need to have a phone with that capability to take advantage of it.

      • http://twitter.com/chaoscentral John Pisano

        Actually the HSPA+ rollout is both hardware and software. They need to overhaul each tower’s back end to increase the bandwidth, and the software to allow it to broadcast HSPA+. A side effect of this is that normal 3G devices also get access to this extra bandwidth as well giving them a substantial speed increase. While normal 3G devices will max out around 7.2mbps, HSPA+ devices can currently max out at 14.4. Even when T-Mobile starts deploying HSPA+ 42, you will definately need a new phone to take advantage of those speeds.

        But honestly at the moment and the forceeable future I don’t see where I’m going to need more than 7mbps on a mobile device.

    All along i strongly felt the delay to release Gingerbread and annouce the Nexus S was to address some short comings of the device. Such as the lack of HSPA+, lack of Dual core, lack of bluetooth 3.0 and i guess improvements on its Gps etc. I think Samsung n Google looked at the landscape of already released n upcoming dual core devices and saw that the Nexus S if released as was originally designed would be seriously lacking in some spec dept. For G-sake any devices lucky to be wearing the Nexus logo should be up to par or lead the way in new specs n tech. Just hope those issues were addressed n then some. As of now my N1 works just fine n with Gingerbread will even be super. As to the Nexus S, i will w8 n see if it can be good enuf to replace my N1…..hmmmmm we shall see

      While I agree with this, I also think it may have had something to do with the companies trying to sell phones right now telling people to STFU about new uber phones, until Christmas is done.

  • Oneman1972

    Off Topic but still news worthy. Last night my My Touch Slide froze and and stayed frozen on the mytouch startup screen. Despite several Master resets nothing worked. Called tech. Support and they are sending out another one. While the tech was processing the info. he said they were starting to roll out Froyo for the My Toutch Slide. And the one I recieve could possibly already have the update. He said they were going by IMEI number and should be complete in about a month.

  • Will

    HSPA+, Dual-Core processor, working GPS, FFC, sizable internal storage space and Vanilla Android Gingerbread plz.

    Otherwise, no country for Nexus S. Quote me.

    • Anonymous

      I have to agree to your specs, Will. It’s about time t-mobile phones start getting most notable feature all in one phone instead of leaving certain things out like they’ve done in the past. From your list, I’d throw in 5/8mp camera with HD recording, and dual LED Flash. Not only that that, THE BUILD BETTER FEEL MORE SOLID and “RICH” than those Galaxy S series (Vibrant).

  • Eltiguere

    Why does the snapshot shows a modification to a phone that already has l been granted certification of original date of oct, 2010… Maybe all the other goodies have already been taken care of: 4G, dual core, etc

    I wonder how many of the people complaining that 7 Mbps is too slow on here are old enough to remember when the fastest Internet connection you could get was 9600 baud. SMH.

    Samsung can go bankrupt for all I care. I wont be purchasing anymore of there phones my Samsung vibrant is enough.. You have mytouch 3g owners that already have the 2.2 update and vibrant owners are still waiting.
