Upcoming WP7-powered Samsung Cetus revealed?

The Bluetooth SIG appears to have revealed Samsung’s first Windows Phone 7 device. Called the Cetus (model SGH-i917), it could also be the first WP7 device to come with a front-facing camera, confirming that Microsoft’s upcoming mobile OS will in fact support video calling.

The model number suggests that the Cetus is headed to AT&T. In the past, Samsung model numbers starting with SGH and ending in a 7 have gone to AT&T.

In terms of specifications, the Samsung Cetus will be powered by Windows Phone 7. It will come with a 4-inch WVGA AMOLED display (Super AMOLED?), GPS, Wi-Fi, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, an FM radio, a microUSB port, a 5MP rear-facing camera and the aforementioned front-facing VGA camera.

Samsung is one the Microsoft partners that is set to unveil Windows Phone 7 devices later this year. Pricing and availability details are not known yet though.

Unfortunately, it appears that the Bluetooth SIG has now pulled down the details of the Samsung Cetus.
