TELUS Canada, one of the leading Canadian telecommunications companies, has finally provided a release date for its bigger-screened variant of the Samsung Galaxy S2–October 28–from which date the handset will start becoming available.
The Canadian carrier’s variant of the Samsung blockbuster Android smartphone will be branded as the 4G Samsung Galaxy S2 X, and although TELUS has not yet revealed its pricing, the handset will most likely bear a US$99 price tag under a three-year contract.
Unlike its other siblings in the U.S., the 4G Samsung Galaxy S2 X will run faster with its dual-core processor blazing trails at a clock speed of 1.5 GHz and its 1 GB of RAM.
Unfortunately, despite the recent release of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS), the handset will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread. However, recent gossip says the 4G Samsung Galaxy S2 X will be getting upgrades to ICS, too.
Formerly codenamed the Samsung Hercules, the device will also sport a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen for vivid and crisper display.
