Samsung Galaxy S2 release date in US
Since the Samsung Galaxy S2 has a huge success in Europe and another few countries, and has already sold more than 3 million S II handsets in less than two months, now it’s time to see how this great handset will be received in US.
The president of Samsung mobile, Shin Jong-Kyun, has announced that the Galaxy S II will finally land in the US in August, but he didn’t specify the exact day and no details on carriers or pricing has been shared. It seems that once the Samsung Galaxy S2 hit the US, it will have different names depending on the Verizon, AT&T and Sprint carriers: the Samsung Function for Verizon, the Samsung Attain for AT&T and the Samsung Within for Sprint. “Negotiations with American telecom companies have dragged on” an unnamed Samsung executive was quoted as admitting.
Also, it’s very possible that at the release of the Galaxy S2 in the United States, the dates could be staggered across carriers, just like it happened with the Galaxy S. The August launch for Galaxy S2 will give Samsung’s handset a slight advantage over Apple’s next-generation iPhone that is expected to be released in September.
The Samsung Galaxy S II features a big 4.3-inch screen, and is powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor, and an 8 megapixel rear camera with a 2 megapixel front camera. It currently runs the Android 2.3.1 in the markets and it’s very possible to run the same version when it launches in the US.
