Samsung i8700 identified as mystery WP7 device

Samsung's previously mysterious Windows Phone 7 device has been identified and given some brief details in a leak this evening. The phone is identified as the i8700 and has about 7.4GB of usable space, hinting that it should have 8GB of pure storage after including the OS itself. A spin around the back hasn't revealed much more to Gizmodo, but it does confirm the presence of a camera flash.

Based on Microsoft's minimum guidelines and Samsung's own recent tendencies in smartphones, the i8700 should have a 1GHz processor, a four-inch 800x480 touchscreen that may be Super AMOLED and a five-megapixel or better camera.

The first wave of WP7 devices may launch on October 11 and could include the i8700 as one of those phones, though whether or not that's the case isn't as certain. The Cetus is already known to be coming to AT&T with the American debut of WP7 in November, so the i8700 may either be for other markets or else ship later.
