New Samsung SGH-i937 , Acer, Fujitsu and ZTE Mango phones unveiled

Microsoft just showed during the Day 2 Keynote of WPC in LA, several of the new Mango devices that are expected to land this fall at your favorite retailer and carrier. The first one is the Samsung SGH-i937 which I first talked about back in May and sports a 4.3″ Super AMOLED Plus display similar to the Samsung Galaxy S II (overall design looks closer to the original Galaxy S though).People calling this the WP7 version of the Galaxy S II should check their facts.

The SGH-i917 does seem to have a front facing camera too and will most probably be powered by an MSM8255 SoC clocked at 1.4Ghz like the Samsung Galaxy S Plus. Acer, Fujistu and ZTE’s first Windows Phones were also unveiled for the first time.
