We’re live at the Samsung Galaxy S II event and AT&T has just announced that its version of the Galaxy S II will have a slightly smaller screen but it will also be the thinnest 4G smartphone around.
According to the official specs, the AT&T Galaxy S II will include:
- 4G – HSPA+
- Android (2.3 Gingerbread)
- GSM Quad-band (850/900/1800/1900MHz)
- UMTS Tri-band( 850/1900/2100MHz)
- Screen: 4.3” Super AMOLED Plus
- Processor: 1.2Ghz x 2 (dual core)
- Camera: 8MP AF with LED flash + 2MP front
- Video Record: 1080p Full HD
- HDMI Out: HDMI via HDTV Smart Adapter with HDCP
- Connectivity: Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0
- Battery: 1650mAh
- Sensor: Motion UX, 6-axis gyroscope, proximity, light, noise (Audience A2220)
The company says that the Android superphone will be 8.89 millimeters thick, which makes it the thinnest 4G smartphone round. While I’m sure that could change by next month, that is quite a thin profile. Is that profile worth losing some screen size though?
The AT&T Galaxy S II didn’t get an exact release date other than “in the coming weeks” and we’d guess it will come out after the Sprint Epic 4G Touch on Sept. 16. The pricing isn’t set in stone either but we’re guessing it will land for $199 with a new contract.
