Remember that Samsung Galaxy S II slider that we saw a few days back? Turns out that it likely isn't the Galaxy S II after all, according to BGR, who leaked out the original images. Just as we already reported, AT&T is now looking to release two new Samsung phones, one being the SGH-i927 with a sliding horizontal qwerty keyboard (pictured above, and mentioned here as well), and a more conventional styled phone that will be the Samsung Galaxy S II for the number two US carrier.
While we still don't know all the details, the slider will be running Gingerbread and have a current version of the Linux kernel -- both very good things. We also know it will have a nice looking sliding keyboard, and offer another great choice to Android fans here in the states. We approve.
