Rumor: Windows Phone 7 version of Samsung Galaxy S II coming?

The Galaxy II S mobile phone from Samsung is doing pretty well, thank you very much. The device was launched over in Europe in May and the Android OS-based device has apparently become a big sales hit. Samsung announced recently that the phone has already sold over three million units since its launch. The phone itself has yet to make its US debut but its slated to be released later this summer via AT&T. But now there are rumors that a new version of the phone could be released with Windows Phone 7 inside.

According to a story at, the official designation for the Galaxy II S is SGH-i927. Now a phone designated the SGH-i937 (yep, 10 higher than the Galaxy II S) has popped up on the Bluetooth SIG web site. There is evidence that the phone has the same Bluetooth profile for the upcoming "Mango" update for Windows Phone 7.

It's possible that the SGH-i937 will basically be the same phone as the current Galaxy II S with just a few additional features to make it work with Windows Phone 7. The current phone has a 4.3 inch screen, a dual core processor, 1 GB of RAM, an eight megapixel camera in the back, and a two megapixel camera. The phone itself is also pretty thin at 8.5 mm.

The "Mango" update for Windows Phone 7 is now in beta for phone developers. The update, along with phones that will have "Mango" already installed, is expected to be released sometime this fall.
