Sound the trumpets and ring the bells - Samsung's much-anticipated Galaxy S II will be arriving in the US next month! How do we know? During the announcement of the South Korean Galaxy Tab 10.1, Shin Jong-kyun, president of mobile business and digital imaging for Samsung, said:

"We expect to release the Galaxy S2 in the U.S. market sometime in August," Shin Jong-kyun, president of Samsung’s mobile business and digital imaging, told reporters at a media briefing.

Of course, this is hardly a firm release date, but at least we now have an idea of when we can expect to see this beauty on American store shelves.

    I won't believe it until I see an official statement from a carrier

  • ben dover

    little to late for me. the rumors of the nexus prime are enough for me to wait it out. if the prime sucks, then I'll be able to get an sgs2 for cheap at that point :)

    I'll believe it when I see it in store and consider it after i've read reviews and played with it myself.

    But why take so long considering it's been out all over the world for months now..... is it gonna be 4g/lte compatible or not?

  • Ant Cee

    Beat me to it hahaha

    I'm skeptical about buying another Samsung phone because I've had a bad experience in the past but everyone seems to love this phone but it has all the specs I'm looking for in a phone so I'll probably end up getting it

    • Sazkion

      The hardware is superior to all other phones right now and if you don't like the software you can get your own custom roms on it

      • dirtydozen

        I’ll definitely would root it as soon as I could

    I'm going to assume Sprint's rumored Samsung Within will be one of the many faces of the SGS2. If so, look out Sprint, here comes my upgrade.

    I'm all over this phone on release :) Been waiting months for it. Bionic is too bulky and not as pretty screen.,

    I don't care about 4G since I am on WiFi just about everywhere I go.

  • phillies1again

    wonder if they'll bump up any of the specs with it coming so late. I thought I heard they were releasing a beefed up version

    Been looking forward to this, but just spent a good half hour reading about battery life for this phone. A lot of kids are saying that the phone only lasts them 12 hours after moderate use on a full charge. I currently have the original Droid and I'm on my second battery, but most often then not I'll still be out at night and my phone ends up dying. I love the features of the Galaxy S II, but really would want a phone that won't die after a day using basic features.

    Wonder how much the carriers will change this. I sadly I'm sure they will do like they did last year each carrier lacking a feature another carrier has. If they go tegra 2 rather than exynos I think they will lose lots of sales.

  • noem

    Does anyone know whether the sgs2 sold by expansys USA and others supports att 3g?

  • wmayr

    Does anyone know when we can expect to see the GORGEOUS white version of the Samsung Galaxy S2 in the US or Canada??
