It’s been a long two months since the Samsung Galaxy S II’s U.S. carrier naming was leaked, but at long last it looks like we will finally be getting our hands on the device that has been selling by the millions worldwide.
In a media briefing on Wednesday, Samsung Mobile’s head honcho, Shin Jong-Kyun told reporters that “we expect to release the Galaxy S2 in the U.S. market sometime in August.” Finally, a breath of fresh air amidst a haze of rumors. This gives Sprint customers even more hope as they were the first carrier to have been witnessed with branding on the new devices.
If you aren’t familiar with the Galaxy S II, it essentially the greatest thing to happen to both phone and mankind—it is second only to sliced bread. It has set the bar for all Android Phones with its brilliant 4.3 inch Super AMOLED display, blazing fast 1.2GHz Exynos dual-core processor, and razor-thin 8.5mm profile. All that and more, plus Google’s Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread operating system. Yup it’s a doozy, and there’s no wonder why it sold over 3 million units in the first 55 days of sales.
So with all these astonishing global sales figures, you would figure that one of the largest mobile telecom markets in the world would have had access to these hotcakes by now. Well, it always takes two to tango and now that Samsung is on board, it’s time for the carriers to get their ducks in a line and start giving their customers what they want. Cheers to a mere two more weeks until the glorious month of August arrives!
