Many other people would agree, Samsung’s new Galaxy S II has been dominating the current smartphone market for some time. As to whether it will still hold this position once other new devices come along is anybody’s guess. Along with other products we report on, the Galaxy S II has been taking over somewhat and the main question on some peoples’ lips is of course, “when will the handset reach the US shores.”
We know that when it finally makes its entrance, dependant on what carrier you opt to choose, it will be known by a different name. Click here for more details from our very own Debbie. Just recently the news hotted up again with mention that a LTE version would be made available, benefiting consumers with a bigger 4.5-inch display, bigger 1.5GHz dual-core processor as well as smaller changes made from the standard Galaxy S II including, a slight difference in thickness, textured back panel now replaced to a smoother one and the camera slightly repositioned with the flash now sitting on top of the camera lens.
As well as this, a new white Galaxy S II version can be purchased along with the standard black. What interested us today but may add to the disappointment, is news of a leaked roadmap that’s been seen from carrier T-Mobile which states that the US Samsung Galaxy S II will launch at the end of October. We know already that rival Sprint are rumored to receive the Sammy on or around the 16th September.
The news comes from intomobile.com via TmoNews that together with the Sammy offering the HTC Ruby or Amaze 4G has its now known will release at the same time. It will be interesting to see if the tables turn on Samsung’s popularity as by this time the Motorola Droid Bionic should have released (8th September), possibly Apple’s iPhone 5 and we know from the HTC’s Amaze 4G specs, that this is a handset not to be messed with.
Lastly the T-Mobile roadmap suggests that Research in Motion’s new Blackberry Curve 9360 will launch around September 14th. To find out its specs click onto the link where Debbie talks about this along with the 9350 and 9370 which are in the pipeline.
What are your thoughts on the new Samsung Galaxy S II? Are you in America waiting for it? Have you already got the handset, if so does the handset deserve the hype its getting?
