Samsung Galaxy S II US pricing and release dates announced
Wednesday 31 August 2011
The Samsung Galaxy S II will go on sale in the US in mid-September.
The handset has already arrived in Europe and Korea where it sold more than 5 million handsets in 85 days - making it the fastest-selling smartphone ever sold by Samsung.
The Samsung Galaxy S II will be available from US carriers AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint, and while Samsung is banding all three handsets with the "Samsung Galaxy S II" name, each model is slightly different cosmetically.
Inside, the technical features remain the same and include a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, an 800x480 4.3" Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen, an 8MP rear-facing camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 1080p HD video recording and run Android version 2.3 Gingerbread with a TouchWiz interface.
Samsung has also announced an LTE version of the Galaxy S II, which will be launched with a slightly larger screen and a slightly better processor. Samsung's Galaxy S II LTE, along with an LTE version of its Galaxy Tab 8.9, will be debuted at IFA.
Sprint’s version of the Samsung Galaxy S II (which will go by the name of Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch) will go on sale on September 16 for a price of $199.99 with a two-year contract. AT&T will launch its version of the Samsung Galaxy S II on September 18, however no prices have been announced. T-Mobile is yet to reveal its prices and release dates.
