US Galaxy S II All Variants Shot Together: Launch Event Date Changed

We’ve been detailing all the latest news and speculation about the Samsung Galaxy S II (S2) and its US release and just in the last few days have told of the huge shock that Verizon will NOT carry the Galaxy S II and also told how the AT&T variant is now showing on a leaked roadmap. Today we have news that the US variants have seemingly at last been pictured together.

The image, which you can see below, shows the supposed models for T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T, sitting pretty in a row. We’ve recently told how the Sprint Galaxy S II would be the Epic Touch 4G and revealed how this may be the first Galaxy S II variant to release in the U.S. We also told of the Hercules for T-Mobile. However much less had been revealed about the Galaxy S II headed to AT&T, thought to be dubbed the Attain, apart from a previous leaked image.

The latest photo, revealed by Evan Blass over on Pocketnow, clearly shows the AT&T Attain, along with the other two carrier variants. We’re still reeling from the news that Verizon is not to carry the Galaxy S II although it seems that a device very closely resembling the specs of the Samsung Galaxy S II may be heading to Verizon instead. Meanwhile over on TMONews it’s noted that an October 26 release date for the US Galaxy S II seems to be increasingly popping up but as yet this is unconfirmed.

Of course we’re now very close to that Samsung press event on August 29 when we expected much more to be revealed about the US Galaxy S II. However as the event is to be held in NYC and as Hurricane Irene is still heading that way this date has now been changed according to this Cnet tweet, to August 30 at 6pm ET. On Tuesday then we should be hearing much more and all will hopefully become clear.

We’ll be keeping you informed about all the further developments for the Galaxy S II release stateside so do check back with us for more on this. Are you patiently, or not so patiently, waiting to get your mitts on the Samsung Galaxy S II? Maybe you’re a disappointed Verizon customer and if so perhaps you might opt for the Motorola Droid Bionic or Apple iPhone 5 instead? Why not let us know by sending us your comments.
