Samsung Moment 2 (M910): First image – Android 2.2 Froyo?

For fans of the Samsung Moment, we have some juicy info for you – as we have the first image via the FCC of what looks to be the Samsung Moment 2, or Samsung M910 handset.

As reported from Phandroid, the device has just passed FCC testing, meaning that a release could be available before the end of the year – likely to be on Sprint first of all.

A few images were supplied with the FCC listing, with the main one giving you a decent look at the slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Phandroid mention that the Moment 2 is likely to come packed with a 1ghz Cortex-A8 processor, along with at least a 3.5-inch AMOLED screen.

Will this device run the latest version of Android 2.2 Froyo, or will it still come packed with Android 2.1? You know which one we’d prefer. Let us know your thoughts on the upcoming Moment 2.

    Similar situation for me. Here's my plan – if this phone is given a release date with the ambiguous "late Q4" or "sometime in Q1" then I'll go with the existing Moment with Android 2.1 update. If Moment 2 has a quick release (June), then I'll wait for it. I can't see that happening with Sprint if Android 2.2 is on this phone unless the difference between 2.1 and 2.2 has no impact on the carrier's add-ons.

    I've also learned to accept this about technology – find some I like, commit to it for a given timeframe no matter what new comes out, and switch/upgrade/change to something newer only if the conditions are right – free upgrade, good resell of current phone on eBay or somewhere else, etc.

    What I'd really like to see is the FCC do testing on release versions only so that consumers can expect quick releases not being delayed by additional carrier testing and adjustments.

    Get the a Moment or Hero on the last day possible. Then return it and swap it for an Evo before your 30 days are up. I have the current Moment (the keyboard, better screen, and faster processor sold me on it over the Hero), and I'm rooting for the Moment 2, but honestly the Evo is just higher spec based upon what we know. The screen is almost a whole inch bigger, processors are comparable and the Evo probably has more onboard memory seeing how Samsung has an SD card fetish. Only advantage the Moment 2 may have would be the keyboard and it may possibly run smoother than the Sense laden HTC.
