White Samsung Galaxy S II Heads to Japan: Will it Release in US?

Last year the white iPhone 4 was in much demand from Apple and there was a fair amount of controversy as it was hit by delays before it finally arrived earlier this year. We’ve already heard indications of a white iPhone 5 but what if you’re one of the many in the U.S. waiting eagerly for the release of the Samsung Galaxy S II (or S2).

It seems that a white Galaxy S II is headed to Japan and so all the signs are promising that those in the US will also receive the white Galaxy S II at some point. Some weeks ago we told how the Galaxy S II was now in white and would be released in the UK on September 1. Today it’s being reported that NTT Docomo in Japan will be taking pre-orders for the white Galaxy S II from August 24 with a release date stated of September 9, according to Japanese magazine Famitsu.

This news came to us from Joey Davidson over on TechnoBuffalo and the fact that NTT Docomo is a major cell phone provider in Japan means widespread availability and mass numbers of a white Galaxy S II. The white Galaxy S II is also to retail in other areas of Europe apart from the UK so if Samsung is churning them out in big enough quantities for Europe and Asia there’s no reason to think that when the Galaxy S II finally hits stateside, it won’t also be available in white. Yesterday we gave you a roundup of all the available news so far for Galaxy S II variants in the US so take a look at the link if you want more on that.

While you’re waiting to get your hands on a Galaxy S II you may also be interested in a Samsung commercial for the US Galaxy S II, which can be seen at this Phandroid link. There’s no doubt its coming soon and we’re bound to find out more at the Samsung event on August 29 but until then we’d like to hear your thoughts. Are you waiting for a US Galaxy S II and if so would you be interested in a white one? Let us know with your comments.
