Samsung’s Legendary Galaxy S II makes its way stateside
The Samsung Galaxy S II is on its way state side and looking to offer its amazing-ness to all of us Americans. If you recall the launch of the original Galaxy S series you may remember a similar turn of events. The Galaxy S made its way around the world, only to be manipulated into four different form factors for the stateside carriers. Nothing different with part two. The only question left is how will they differ from the world renowned original and the carrier variations. Well a new family picture of these American bound Galaxy S II’s has recently surfaced to the interwebs, giving us all a look at just that.
The Sprint and T-Mobile versions of the Galaxy S II have been shown off in recent leaks. The Tmo version has been surfacing across the internet as the Samsung Hercules and the Sprint version has also seen its fair share of exposure posing as the Galaxy Within, which we know now as the Samsung Epic Touch 4G. The At&t variation of the Galaxy S II did not get to much exposure and was once thought to come equipped with a sliding QWERTY. Obviously the At&t version can be seen above sans the keypad and this is the first time it’s gotten some real exposure. I know you may be thinking where is the Verizon version? Well it seems that big red has decided to opt out of the Galaxy S II offerings in preparation of something bigger (maybe not literally) and better. Most are assuming the new Nexus Prime will fill the void.
You can expect the same internals from all of the listed variations, and they are impressive. Give or take a few exceptions the Galaxy S II is a super phone if there ever was one. This beast runs a dual core 1.2 GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, expandable memory with a microSDHC card slot, an 8 mega pixel camera that can record video in 1080p HD, an impressive 2 mega pixel front facing camera and the power of Android 2.3. While the spec’s for the American version could vary, they most likely will not stray too far from the original. The only other difference outside of the form factor will be the excessive amount of bloat ware the carriers will install on the device. The Galaxy S II devices were slated to be announced on Monday, however a recent hurricane by the name of Irene has delayed the announcement
