RUMOR: Is the Samsung SGH-i780 coming to the U.S. as the SGH-i788?

Engadget Mobile found a new Samsung phone, listed by the FCC which is called the Samsung SGH-i788. Unfortunately not too much is known yet but remember, Samsung uses "SGH" for GSM and UMTS smartphones while "i" is used for its Windows Mobile and Symbian S60 smartphones. And if you compare FCC's drawing of the SGH-i788 with the SGH-i780, it looks quite similar. Furthermore, while Samsung tried to hide details of the drawing, if you scroll the FFC PDF quite fast, you can see a square camera whole, centered on the top with a speaker right to it (on the left the SGH-i780, on the right the unmasked SGH-i788):

It would definitely makes sense for Samsung to release another version of the i780 since the i780 is - as so many Samsung smartphones - not a worldwide roamer due to limited frequency support (in this case triband GSM/GPRS/EDGE and singleband UMTS/HSDPA for Europe only).

It's not yet known if the SGH-i788 will also sports GPS and which Windows Mobile version (if any) is used but Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional is most likely.
