Mystery, solved. That SGH-i667 ‘Mandel’ Windows Phone that cropped up earlier in the month (and is shown above on the left)? Word on the street at that point was that it had been nixed from AT&T’s lineup, but somehow, that same device actually made the trip to New Orleans. Sure enough, it debuted at CTIA as the Focus 2, a mid-range followup phone that’s destined to tempt smartphone buyers to the WP7 side with a rock-bottom $ 50-on-contract price point. Hard to say if Samsung and AT&T mutually decided to carry through with launch plans after initially spiking ‘em (or if that intel was just wrong to begin with), but we can think of it least one recently-canned phone that’s hoping it’s the former.

Sure, today’s gadget news is saturated with Samsung’s new Galaxy S III, but lest we forget that it’s been a hot minute since its released a Windows Phone device. The last we saw were the Focus S and Flash, and that was right around when the Nokia Lumia 800 and Galaxy Nexus were still fresh in our minds. Well, this can only be classified as a potential leak, but two purported photos of another Samsung WP7.5 device, codenamed “Mandel,” was recently posted at the WPXAP forums. While there’s not much in the way of hard details, according to WPCentral, this is the white SGH-i667 that passed through the FCC during March with AT&T bands, but then apparently nixed before it could hit stores. Along with the photo, a screenshot from the Zune software shows it having only 8GB of capacity, which likely means it wasn’t slated to be a premium offering. That’s about all the info that’s surfaced for now on the Mandel, but feel free to hit up the links below for more details and analysis. Here’s hoping that Samsung will announce more love for Windows Phone soon.
A mysterious Windows Phone that we’d originally expected to appear at CES — Samsung’s so-called Mandel with LTE support — may have recently gained FCC approval, a sign that the phone could finally be on its way to announcement. The phone in the FCC’s filing system is identified only as the SGH-i667, but Pocketnow notes that this model number has been previously linked to the Mandel; the “7” at the trailing end of the model number is also indicative of an AT&T-bound device, and the i667’s support for AT&T-compliant LTE would line up well with that.
Mandel also skipped a potential unveiling at MWC a couple weeks ago, but Samsung opted out of a press conference altogether, opting instead to introduce its Galaxy Note 10.1 in private…
