Nokia N93i FCC-approved

Nokia intends to ship an updated version of its high-end N93 smartphone to the US, according to a recent FCC filing. The new approval reveals that the update, named N93i, will see key changes to its iconic design. The thick size of the existing handheld will be slimmed down considerably and should also see a glossy mirror finish replace the solid black of the current model. A seamless, RAZR-style number pad should also make its debut. Nokia says it will also make a concession to standards: instead of the company's own Pop-Port connector, a standard mini-USB port will let the phone sync with a PC using any A-to-B USB cable.

No release date has been confirmed for the updated phone, which in FCC testing is currently a tri-band GSM phone with EDGE and UMTS broadband; to see an official release in the US, the phone will require a fourth band. Extra photos are available after the jump. [Via Slashphone]
