Samsung Galaxy S II Smartphone, Officially Reaches U.S Carriers
Samsung Galaxy S II variants, slated to be released in mid-September.
The handset will still be featuring some of the internals of Galaxy S II. However, the release versions were not able to access 4G LTE networks. Instead, it will use the HSPA+ on AT&T and T-Mobile, Sprint’s WiMAX.
All models come with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, an 800 x 480 4.3-inch screen, 1GB of RAM, and runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread skinned with Samsung’s TouchWiz interface. Samsung also confirmed that each Galaxy S II handset will be equipped with 16GB of storage (expandable up to 32GB), a microSD card, an 8.0MP rear facing camera with 1080p video recording support, and a 2.0MP front-facing camera.
Last weekend, the manufacturer announced their plans of releasing LTE versions of both the Samsung Galaxy S II and the Galaxy Tab 8.9. Unfortunately, the launching date remains unknown at this point.
The smartphone’s AT&T version is said to be the thinnest among the three, with only 8.89 millimeters — outrunning Sprint’s variant of 9.65 millimeters. The Sprint version will then be named as “Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch” and will be released on September 16 for $199.99. AT&T’s Galaxy S II, on the other hand, is set for a launching on September 18. No pricing and release date details announced for T-Mobile.View Article Source »
