Samsung Galaxy S II Windows Phone variant in the works?

Samsung Focus Samsung Galaxy S II Windows Phone variant in the works?It is that time of year again. With most of the features in Windows Phone Mango now public knowledge–at least, as far as we are aware–the hardware news is beginning to pick up.

WMPoweruser believes that Samsung is working on a Windows Phone variant of the Samsung Galaxy S II (model number SGH-i927). This new handset, known as the SGH-i937, has shown up on lists of Windows Phone devices and uses the same Bluetooth profile as the other Windows Phones.

HTC sells the most Windows Phones due to the sheer number of HTC handsets on the market, but the Samsung Focus (SGH-i917) is considered to be the premiere Windows Phone device. Unfortunately, it’s limited in some capacities, like its 8GB of onboard storage.

The Galaxy S II is better than the Focus in almost every way. It is thinner and it packs a dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16 or 32GB of memory, a 4.3-inch Super-AMOLED screen, and an 8MP camera. It comes with a front-facing camera as well.

If the SGH-i937 can meet or exceed these specs, we’ll have one heck of a Windows Phone on our hands. Of course, it will also have to compete with the impressive Nokia Sea Ray and the enormous HTC Eternity.
