While in the loving hands of the FCC, the details of the handset have shown off its model number as the SGH-T999, while the previous iteration, the GSII for T-Mo had a model number of SGH-T989. If that wasn’t enough, details of the entities inspection also reveal the T999 will be running with 1700 Mhz AWS frequency bands, which pretty much solidifies it as a T-Mobile device.  The handset adds a consonant to be rebranded as the SGH-T999V, over at the Bluetooth SIG which pretty much confirmed to be carrying the latest in Bluetooth version 4.0 and be compatible with “HSP, A2DP, AVRCP, GAVDP, HFP1.5, OPP, PBAP, MAP, PAN, HID” Bluetooth protocols.
