Sprint 7 Pro is the HTC T7575; What's the Samsung GT-I8703?

Some info we received seems to confirm that the upcoming Sprint 7 Pro goes by the model number HTC T7575. This comes from the breakdown of the ROM, which yielded some interesting, but still cursory information. For instance, it will have

  • Qualcomm and Broadcom chipsets on board
  • Broadcom 802.11 DHD Network Adapter ("with 11nmode disabled")
  • Sprint Navigator is there
  • Sprint Zone
  • HTC Hub, Stocks
  • WM7_7.0_11_JAN" "ParentBranchBuild"="7389" aka 'NoDo'
  • "TimeStamp"="20110124-1636" (Finalized 1/24/2011)

Interestingly, there's a few AT&T references thrown in, suggesting that Ma Bell may get this device too, which would not surprise us in the least. As to the bad news, there's really no evidence that this has WiMax (4G) on board, so never say never, but don't get your hopes up either--not looking good.

Also of note, when we used WP7 game developer's Elbert Perez's stats page, we saw a few listings for unknown phones, evidently being used in testing:

  1. HTC T7575 (now known as the CDMA 7 Pro)
  2. Samsung GT-I8703 - ?
  3. HTC MWP6985 - ?

The Samsung was speculated by other sites to be an Android device, but alas, it's playing Elbert's games meaning this is a hitherto unknown Samsung Windows Phone, quite possibly a CDMA variant of the Focus or Omnia 7. Likewise, the HTC MWP6985 is also a Windows Phone, but we have no info on it (the CDMA Trophy is the HTC PC40200, so probably not that).

Anyone have anything they'd like to add to the discussion?

Thanks, Manos P., for getting us started

It's probably the Omnia 7 which has already had FCC approval (http://www.uberphones.com/2010/12/samsung-omnia-7-fcc/) and was confirmed as a CDMA launch device in this article?"· Look for the HTC Mozart and the Samsung Omnia to be the two launch CDMA devices. It’s unclear as to whether both will be available on Sprint and Verizon, but the devices are confirmed for the respective launches."http://mobilitydigest.com/windows-phone-7-updates-from-ces-2011/

Well, the GSM version of Samsung Omnia 7 is GT-I8700.

says:

Well, it would be interesting if the HTC MWP6985 was in fact the Mozart. I don't think anyone thought there was going to be a CDMA variant, but I could be wrong. That'd be great though as it is superior to the Trophy. So, I hope that is what the unknown HTC device is.But maybe it's something totally new, which would be fun too. :)

GT I8703http://www.gadgetsnreviews.com/samsung-gt-i8703-to-pave-its-way-to-the-m...I have an Omnia 7 Zulu it's not that there is a photo on the URL above. (Looks like an Android)

Yeah, saw that. But this def WP7 as it's running Elbert's games...that's how he tracks usage.

If Sprint shocks me and gets an Omnia 7 instead of the 7 Pro, ill be in line day uno!

SEKKDS says:

I'd be next in line after you. I'm wishing for a Samsung WP7 for Sprint. HTC didn't do it for me with its TP2 and its *un*stability.

TheWeeBear says:

@ mjfadaway The Omnia 7 is a classy phone. I absolutely love it. (Only moan I have is the UK version is only 8GB)

Well, the GSM version of Samsung Omnia 7 is GT-I8700.

If you do a search for MWP6985 you find that there are some cases out there marked as supporting the device. These cases look shockingly like they would fit the Trophy. My guess this is the (very) old code name for the device.Trophy (Back): http://www.mobiletechworld.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/htc_...Case: http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/392010656/mobile_phone_silicone_case_f...

HTC MWP6985- I'm feeling the HTC arrive. Hopefully its a cool WP7 device with a nice screen killer processor and a front facing camera. Only because I think its awesome to video chat with friends.http://www.engadget.com/2011/01/23/htc-arrive-and-kyocera-echo-bow-for-s...Samsung GT-I8703 - I have no idea but a killer phone like the Omnia 7 would be awesome.

MistaWet says:

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE! Don't let the HTC Pro 7 be the only WP7 device on Sprint come March. Ever since I sold my Evo (7 months ago), I've been using a LG Rumor and I'm about ready to go BONKERS waiting for a Sprint WP7 device.

frylock says:

I am still running an old 6800 with WM 6.5 hacked onto it. But I am not about to give up my SERO plan. That's why I've been waiting so long for Sprint!

GP07 says:

Well no surprise there, the NoDo update was ready on the 24th of Jan! Thanks Carriers, thanks a lot.

DontHate707 says:

thrusday can't come any faster I hope it's a slew of wp7 devices for sprint so I can get rid of this pre minus I have! :) something with alot of storage pleaseee!

foosball says:

Welcome to the club! I love webOS but my Pre has to go!

SEKKDS says:

I too am dying for a Windows Phone 7 on the Sprint network!! While it appears that the HTC 7 Pro is indeed around the corner for Sprint, after having my Touch Pro 2 since its release, I am left with a bad taste for another HTC product (not to mention going through the first Touch Pro also). As much as I really want a new Windows Phone, as long as I don't twitch, snap, and snatch a HTC 7 Pro at its release, I can only hope to have a little more paitence and see if any other WP7 devices will come out for Sprint. I would much rather have a Samsung device, and the Focus seems to be a solid device.Please bring a Samsung Windows Phone to Sprint!!!!!
