September 19, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

If you have been constantly looking to upgrade to a new mobile device, the FCC has allowed you one more smartphone. The Samsung Focus S has received FCC approval and is now waiting for the release window to open.

The Focus whizzed through with the model name of i937 and a design tried on by Microsoft earlier this year. The smartphone on test confirmed its AT&T 3G frequencies and supports 5GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

The Focus S is intended to be a Windows Phone 7 equivalent of the popular Galaxy S II, and apart from some small changes, the smartphone will be featuring the 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen and 8-megapixel rear camera.

The processor will be getting a scale down and you will be seeing a single-core 1.4GHz Snapdragon under the hood and also only a 1.3-megapixel front camera for video calls.

Other details haven’t been revealed as yet, but they won’t take time in coming. There’s no confirmation on the launch date either, but the FCC filings do hint at a possible mid-October release.

We do hear that the Samsung might formally unveil the Focus S at the CTIA show on October 11. So if you guys show up there, you might be able to catch a glimpse.
