It appears that someone over at MobileSyrup was just able to snag what appears to be one of the first actual shots of Samsung’s upcoming Superphone – the Samsung Herculus. While the folks who took the shot of this 4.5 inch behemoth didn’t get any actual hands on time with the device itself, they did happen to remark that it features the same display tech behind what is considered by many to be the world’s best current Android phone, the Samsung Galaxy S II, but at a slightly larger size. Other quick facts to note are that it appeared to be running on Telus’ 42Mbps HSPA+ 4G network, and is similar in design to Samsung’s latest Android offerings.
TELUS has been really lacking in terms of offering the latest, most powerful devices, but it’s looking this beast of a phone is set to change all that, and update Telus to Android’s finest.
Any thoughts on this upcoming superphone? It appears that Canada is truly winning the mobile technology war this year, with the Samsung Galaxy S II being already offered on two separate carriers, while their neighbors to the south are still waiting. Not to mention that the Motorola Droid 3 is also a 4G handset in Canada too. Really though, if Canada is to get the Samsung Hercules first, then that will be the final nails on the coffin. Any thoughts? is 4.5 too big? Sounds like Droid Bionic territory to us.
