It has been a long time in coming, and it looks like the flagship device from Samsung, the Galaxy SII, will be headed to U.S. shores in August. This info is courtesy of Samsung's President of Mobile himself, Shin Jong-kyun. Here's his quote,This could potentially pit the Samsung power-house up against Apple's next iteration of the iPhone. Here's a recap of some of the specs just as a refresher as to why this is exciting news:“We expect to release the Galaxy S2 in the U.S. market sometime in August,”
- Gingerbread and TouchWiz
- 1.2GHz dual-core processor
- 8MP camera with 1080p video
- Front 2MP camera
- 4.3″ Super AMOLED Plus screen
- Ultra-Thin and Light
- 1650mAh battery
There's no word on a specific date in August, but we expect Samsung to keep that a bit "fluid" so as to better compete in the marketplace with both the newest iPhone and perhaps even the Droid Bionic. Let the rejoicing commence!
Thanks to all my tipsters who sent this in!
