The FCC has just approved a slim new Samsung phone that supports tri-band GSM and EDGE. Apparently similar to the 3G SGH-Z150, the SGH-T509 sports an equally svelte 9.8-millimeter design, and apparently feature Bluetooth 1.2. Not much else is known about this candybar handset, but Engadget Mobile will keep our eye on this one for all you T-Mobile and Cingular customers.
