Samsung is well known for creating some of the best top-tier smartphones, but it also has developed a reputation for building out-of-the-ordinary mobile gadgets as well. The Samsung Galaxy Note, a 5.3-inch hybrid phone-tablet device, has wowed several tech journalists, although there are plenty of other reporters who are not fans of the untraditional mobile device. Now Samsung is ready to test another  creation.

Samsung is reportedly pursuing a tiny, 2.8-inch display Android phone, which recently cleared the FCC. The phone, which has been dubbed the Galaxy Pocket, will run on Google's Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system.

The Samsung Galaxy Pocket packs a decent punch at 832 MHz processor and 3GB of internal storage. Another nice feature is the fact that the phone will include a small camera on the back. The camera is only 2 megapixels according to Engadget, which is far below other Samsung Android-based smartphones, but for simple picture-taking, this could actually be a great deal.

Endadget is also reporting that AT&T will likely be the first to carry the phone, though the tech blog warns anything is possible, so the phone could eventually make its way to other carriers. There are no details on pricing at this time, but because it's such a small-size phone, it's fair to assume that it will be brought out at an entry-level price.

We'll continue to update you as more information becomes available.
