Long before the United States could get a taste of the Android phone that gives Steve Jobs nightmares, Samsung is already rumored to be preparing a new superphone expected to rival the iPhone 5 and eclipse other Android smartphones–including Samsung’s own Galaxy S II.
Known as the Samsung Hercules for now, Samsung’s upcoming superphone is expected to be exclusively carried by T-Mobile, which, either by misfortune or intention, was left out of the official carrier list for the Samsung Galaxy S II. The Samsung Hercules will be T-Mobile’s flagship smartphone and is rumored to be priced at US$350.
The Samsung Hercules is expected to be launched some time in August.
The name “Hercules” conjures images of the beefy and physically strong demigod of Greek tales whose exploits suggest that the Samsung Hercules could pretty much overcome insurmountable obstacles and accomplish Herculean tasks. Here’s why:
If rumors about the iPhone 5′s specs are true, then it will definitely trail behind the Samsung Hercules in terms of muscle. Rumors say that the iPhone 5 will have a dual-core, 1.2-GHz A5 processor, 1 GB RAM, an 8-MP camera with dual-LED flash, 3.7-inch display, and a SIM-less design. It will not likely have 4G LTE support.
Which will it be for you–the iPhone 5 or the Samsung Hercules?

Not so shocking specs to be astonished of. Won’t be a big competitor for the iPhone 5 if it has these specs I think.
