Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge FCC filings offer info on network band support


We’re still a little more than two weeks away from the expected debut of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, but many details of the two new phones have already leaked. Today a few more tidbits have been uncovered thanks to the FCC.

FCC entries for two new Samsung phones have been discovered, and it’s expected that they’re for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. The entries actually include model numbers for five US carriers — AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, and regional carriers like US Cellular — but we’re just concerned with the T-Mo model here. It looks like the T-Mobile version of the Galaxy S7 will carry the model number SM-G930T, while the Galaxy S7 edge will be the SM-G935T.

Looking at wireless connectivity, both the GS7 and GS7 edge appear to have LTE bands 2, 4, 5, and 12, WCDMA bands 2, 4, and 5, and GSM 850/1900 support. There’s also support for 2x and 3x LTE carrier aggregation listed in the report as well as Voice over LTE and Voice over Wi-Fi. Other features expected to be included are GPS, Bluetooth, and NFC/MST sensors for Samsung Pay.

Most of these features are kind of expected in a flagship Android smartphone launching at T-Mobile in 2016, but it is nice to get an idea of the GS7 and GS7 edge’s networking capabilities ahead of their official launch. As for the rest of their feature sets, the rumor mill suggests that we’ll see 2560×1440 display resolutions, microSD slots, Snapdragon 820 processors, and microSD slots.

Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge at an event on February 21, with a US launch rumored to follow on March 11. To help pass the time until the phones make their debut, you can click the FCC links below to peruse tons and tons of pages of documentation.

    It doesn’t matter what Sambum come up with. They will never emulate Apple when come to functionally, design, specs and overall sale’s. Hell, there people still complaining they never gotten their Lollipops lol.


    • Jay J. Blanco

      Samsung has been in the mobile phone world for decades so they have surpassed sales of apple a long time ago. Functionality surpassed, design surpassed, specs surpassed. And samsung release updates but it up to the carriers if it gets out…..

      • Prode

        lol you don’t seem to understand how different ios and Android is. If you go off raw numbers the Iphone 6s is better then any current Samsung Phone. Take a look. Functionality is all based on the person. Someone who likes Android may not like the Iphone, so to say functionality is better is flawed. Design is also based on the person. I would say the design is better with a iphone because there is no glass back. Having a 100% metal phone to me is way better. All I have to say to you about updates is lol. Maybe you should get your info right here. The Galaxy S 2 was put the same year as the Iphone 4s and which phone is still getting updates. Not the Galaxy S 2. So you should get your facts right before posting crap you do not understand.

        • Jay J. Blanco

          You are all wrong seems you need to look at mobile phone history apple is only get stealing and borrowing stuff and put it in there phones. Everyone knows this they acquire patents not create. On the other hand samsung has created and push technologie’s to the next level.

          Andriod took the leap to 3G and 4G and soon 5G while apple is always late to the game but the only difference is they make it smoother and alittle better… that’s it… that’s all you can give them credit for take you head out the Apple root man and go learn the history of the mobile market place

        • Prode

          none of what you just said was in your comment before mine. You just keep trying to pull new things out to make apple look bad. How many times has Samsung copied Apple. Look at the S6, the phone looks just like an Iphone. I am not saying Apple hasn’t copied other ppl because they have. You know why Android is always 1st, because they put out how many phones in a year. How many phones does Apple put out in 1 year. 1 phone if you think of the Plus as the same thing as the normal one. How many phones does Samsung put out in the flagship area. 2 phones. The S line and the Note line. This means if the S line doesn’t have it then the Note line will. Case and point Band 12 was on the Note 4 but not the S5 and both were out in the same year. Did T-Mobile have Band 12 when the Iphone 6 was put out, no it was not widely out yet. When the 6s came out was band 12 widely out, yes. Apple puts things out when they are going to be used, not before that. They also market it better which makes people want it more. Also if you want to learn about the mobile market place maybe you should go back to the times of the Pocket PC. Read up on the Dell Axim I owned one of these and they were out in 2002. Way before Smartphones were out. I also would want something that is smoother and a little better then something that is buggy and laggy as hell. Cough all Samsung phone with crapwiz.

          You realize you just qoute Wikipedia which is not acceptable in academia

  • Rod

    Why does Samsung even bother making carrier specific hardware. They’d probably turn a profit if they used the same model for all 5 carriers.

    • MastarPete

      The hardware is mostly identical already, it’s the firmwares that define bands and how they get used that are different enough between carriers to require their own model number. Not to mention each carriers pre-installed bloatware among other carrier specific settings that get loaded at the factory on the carrier’s behalf.

  • vinnyjr

    It’s funny, clowns that don’t like Samsung products would spend a good portion of their day on a Samsung product forum. Me who own both Apple and Samsung devices have a more clear point of few. My iPhone 6S is a damn good phone but it doesn’t hold a candle to the Note 5. Not even close.

    • Acdc1a

      A lot of the “clowns” have been turned off by Samsung. I thought and still think the S3 was one of the best phones ever manufactured. The Note 2 was a similarly magnificent device. The GPS failed in 2 different Note 3’s and the S5 has to be the worst phone I’ve had the misfortune of using. My firsthand experience is why I’m no longer interested in Samsung.

      • Prode

        This is what I felt like with the S6. Made me hate Android and go to an Iphone.

        • gmo8492

          Because the S6 was the only android phone made that year. Ok.

        • Prode

          They all blow ass. This article is about Samsung, so my comment was about Samsung. When you look at all the Android phones last year, over all the Note 5 was most likely the best one of them put out. Problem is, it is still a Samsung and Samsung blow ass to me right now when it comes to phone. The other company’s aren’t any better. I know this is me but a lot of people think this as well.

        • Jay Holm

          You just seem too damn hard to please! Dare I ask what do you expect from a smartphone?

        • Prode

          Something like the Nexus line. I want no bloatware, high end specs, nice camera, and mainly updates for more then 1.5 years. Only phone that gives you that right now is an iPhone. There is no Android phone that gives you that unless you get a nexus but then you get a crap ass camera. I have had many different Android phones since the HTC G1 back in 2008. Then the S6 with Samsung’s crap ass updates made me not happy with android. There was other things as well like what I said above, but the S6 was the the push for me to a iphone.

        • Jay J. Blanco

          IPhone has samsung parts in it. So technically your still using samsung

    • Bradley Karas

      Agreed! I have both too

  • JaswinderSinghJammu

    Just make the same device with all the radios or at least for US. It only makes sense. They would sell more phones anyway.

    • VINN

      Or at least one GSM model and one CDMA model.

      I think Android manufactures should each have an iPhone fighter model or a hipster phone like some say and focus on that aspect, but apart from those models they should make serious phones.

  • Sean

    You typed “microSD slots” twice in the last sentence of the second-to-last paragraph.

    • Jose

      I thought he was just really excited about that rumor. :)

  • that_guy

    They need to revamp their launcher. I’m tired of all that blue.

  • guest

    why are they showing it on a sunday and not a week day

  • Richard Roma

    Basically still fragmented, with different handsets for each carrier. They might as well be locked, as the software form one carrier, is often incompatible with that of another.

  • Jay Holm

    Support for 2x & 3x CA….but T-Mobile is yet to deploy CA. . .grrrrr!!!!!!!!

    • Anshel Sag

      T-Mobile has CA in most markets…

      • Jay Holm

        Umm….no they don’t! Where the heck did you get that from? I live in Houston, no carrier aggregation here….if so the speeds would be much, much higher during the day!

  • Javier Torres

    Am I missing something. According to the release the phone will not be a world phone?
