It’s finally official. After lots of rumors and teasing Samsung has finally made the US versions of their hit Galaxy S II Android superphone official for AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. And wow do they look to live up to the hype.
As we thought, all three Galaxy S IIs have massive, awesome Super AMOLED Plus screens (AT&T’s Galaxy S II is 4.3 inches while Sprint and T-Mobile’s are 4.5 inches like AT&T’s Infuse 4G. Basically, everything and anything you view on them will look insane), 8 megapixel back cameras with 2 megapixel front cameras (for higher quality video chatting), ridiculously thin designs (it’s literally pencil thin!), the latest and greatest Android 2.3 Gingerbread with Samsung’s latest TouchWiz 3.0, 4G support, 16 GB of built-in storage, and are super fast with dual-core 1.2 GHZ processors. In short, if you’re looking for a new super powerful Android phone on AT&T, Sprint or T-Mobile you’re going to want to check these out.
In terms of release dates and pricing, Sprint will be the first to release the Galaxy S II– with their version called the Epic 4G Touch– on September 16th for $200 on new 2 year contract and data plan. AT&T and T-Mobile’s Galaxy S II’s are said to be coming not too long after that, but sadly we don’t have exact release dates or pricing for them just yet.
Oh, and for those wondering about the Verizon Galaxy S II. Well, we’re sorry to say that Verizon is passing on the Galaxy S II entirely…. and are instead rumored to be getting an even more powerful phone in October called the Samsung Droid Prime. According to BGR, the Droid Prime will be even more powerful than the Galaxy S II, will run on Verizon’s 4G LTE network and possibly even be the first phone to run the next big update to Android, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (which is rumored to be coming out later this year). According to the rumors Verizon thinks this phone will be better able to hold it’s own against it’s other top phones like the Droid Bionic and upcoming iPhone 5. Yeah, if the Bionic isn’t for you then this looks to be the Verizon Droid to wait for.
So, anyone see this as your next phone?
