    Here is some good news for our Android readers in the UK. The Samsung Galaxy S II has been officially confirmed for a May 1st launch, and it will come with the 1.2GHz CPU that was previously rumored. Word on the streets still suggests that folks in the US will get it this month. There is also still no absolute confirmation which carrier will get it, but we will let you know as we find out more. Here's the full press release below:

    Man I wish we could get some kind of verification on this coming to Verizon. I'd be all over this phone.

    Nothing yet, still watching. I just find it incredibly hard to believe that it won't be. But not out of the question.

    the Stealth is actually the Droid Charge..which is the ugliest phone i think ive ever seen. if they released both 4G, i bet the charge wouldnt even compare in sales. its sooo much sleeker and better looking than the charge

    Yes it is 4G but for T mobile or AT&T..


    • HSPA:
      • Yes HSUPA 5.76 Mbit/s
    • HSPA+ (4G):
      • Yes (HSDPA 21 Mbit/s)

    If this Phone does come to Verizon it will Probably be 4thQ. that is if they do it the same way as they did with the Galaxy s1. Verizon was the last to get it..

    Ya I agree I hate the shape of the stealth and am not considering it. I just dont understand why would verizon be last to get this phone? Largest and best carrier= last for new technology? Got thunderbolt late (htcevo4g), got fascinate late (galaxy s on every other carrier) got bionic late (atrix at and t)


    I just dont get why the largest and most reliable carrier cant get the best phones the soonest.

    They really are getting terrible about this. All the cutting edge phones are going to other carriers initially. It's maddening.

    VZW has always gotten phone technology last... but it seems to be worsening.

    VZW doesn't get EVERY phone, but I'm not seeing where they're lagging in the cutting edge. So AT&T got the Atrix, but it's not LTE. And quite honestly I think VZW wanted no part of the Atrix given unlimited data plans. Bionic just around the corner, and I think the DX and DInc were on par with the Evo just obviously not 4G.

    Sometimes I think people on this board just sit around waiting for stuff to complain about regarding VZW.

    not complaining

    There is a difference between complaining and stating a fact. every other carrier has better phones out than currently available on Verizon. and the phones are cheaper on the other carriers for the equivalent phone also. but there may be something that we dont even know about. or the droid x2 maybe turn out to have a lot more than advertised. but the galaxy s-2 may be too much for me to pass up not to jump ship if they indeed are 4-6 months behind everyone else. im willing to wait until august for a great phone on verison. but not much past that. the bionic may still be a good option but we have to wait and see what is blurred about the device :) . we already are pretty assured it may be rooted and not much more which really kills it. but we dont know that every other phone wont be either. of course we will have this conversation again in 6 months. man i got this galaxy s-2 and its nice but i want that droid 5 :)
    watch all this be a waste when this power phone comes out 3g only on verizon :(

    Are there really no side keys like volume on this? You can only see the info when comparing with another phone that has them (ex droid), but it shows up as none. Check it out with this comparison of the Moto Droid 1 and Galaxy SII.
    That kinda sucks :/

    That side picture looked like a volume button to me. Or am I looking at it wrong?

    I can live without the camera button easily. I prefer the onscreen with my Inc as it is.
