Samsung Nexus Prime Passes through FCC Gates with Support for AT&T and T-Mobile Bands

October 8, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Samsung’s gesture of postponing the launch of Nexus Prime following the death of Apple founder Steve Jobs, is talk of the town at the moment.

The phone was supposed to have been unveiled at the Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2011– Google Episode on October 11. You might have already gone through the Galaxy Nexus specs which we already brought to you.

As if keeping the enthusiasm hot and simmering, we just spotted the handset’s appearance at FCC with details of its compatibility with the AT&T and T-Mobile networks.

One aspect to be noted here is the handset’s support for the GSM bands 850 and 1900, WCDMA bands II and IV and the 1700 AWS band.

So this version of Prime will appear on AT&T and T-Mobile in the US. It will be compatible with the overseas band too. Meanwhile, there are no details about CDMA and LTE support. Earlier, it was rumored that Verizon is likely to be the phone’s carrier.

Other features, as per the FCC documents, are the handset’s NFC, dual-band Wireless-N Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities. The device that measures 124 mm long and 68 mm in breadth seems to have a size similar to that of the Galaxy S II.

With Samsung and Google deciding to postpone the October 11th event as a tribute to Jobs, it is likely that the event has been rescheduled in London for October 27th. Gear up, folks.
