Amidst rumors that Steve Jobs’ nightmare-causing Android phone, the Samsung Galaxy S II, may skirt the United States, Samsung announced last Wednesday that the Samsung Galaxy S II will be arriving in the United States in August.
Shin Jong-kyun, head of Samsung’s mobile communications division, did not specify the exact date of the Samsung Galaxy S II’s release in the United States. Shin made the announcement during the launching of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in South Korea. Shin was mum on the price, too.
American consumers have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S II, a mobile powerhouse packing a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 (1.2 GHz) processor, a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
Earlier reports have said that the Samsung Galaxy S II will be rebranded when it reaches major mobile carriers in the U.S.–as the Samsung Galaxy S II Function (Verizon), Samsung Galaxy S II Attain (AT&T), and Samsung Galaxy S II Within (Sprint).
The Samsung Galaxy S II is already available elsewhere around the world (except in the U.S.), with about 3 million handsets sold within just 2 months of its initial release.
Shin’s announcement ought to fan the flames of American consumers’ hopes for finally getting their hands on the Samsung Galaxy S II this August.
Are you still willing to wait for Samsung’s flagship superphone? Or have you moved on?
