While we were just wondering what’s the holdup with the Samsung Galaxy S II in the United States, a Samsung executive said that we could be seeing this superphone as early as next month.
“We expect to release the Galaxy S2 in the U.S. market sometime in August,” said Shin Jong-kyun, president of Samsung’s mobile business and digital imaging, according to Yonhap.
The Samsung Galaxy S II is expected to follow its predecessor by coming to all four major carriers and we’ve even seen the brand names leak. Samsung might be taking a bit more time with these to add some more features or to ensure that it can use its own dual-core chip exclusively.
Whenever the Samsung Galaxy S II hits, it will immediately be one of the best phones on the market. In our official review of the international version, Blake said:
Simply put, yes. The Samsung Galaxy S 2 is one stunning piece of hardware that is sure to please anyone who picks it up. We’re usually not a fan of custom user interfaces, but TouchWiz has been greatly improved, and the new gesture features are novel and fun. With a great display and blazing fast processor, this is one of the hottest pieces of hardware that is kept ultra slim and sexy.
Sounds good to me.
