I would hope they would release to all carriers. Doing otherwise would be kind of like snatching defeat out of the jaws of victory. Samsung doesn't strike me as being stupid. If they have their production ramped up and are ready to sell immediately on release, they could have a real hit. Especially if the benchmarks are competitive.

if the specs are to be believed quadband hsdpa should allow us north americans to sample unlocked versions right away together with europe and asia.

Second. Especially on the heels of the joke of a release of the thingy with 2 screens....

I'm really disappointed about it :-( I hoped it would have Samsung's powerhouse: Orion or Exhynon or whatever it is called now. Still, Tegra 2 is quite powerful and phone looks quite slick. I think Motorola Atrix 4G is the real beast for know, but time and pricing will tell who is the best :-)

Obviously you didn't read. It said it IS going to have Samsung's dual core chip in it.....please read before commenting.

Dude, let him be! the poor guy made that comment when in fact the article talked about tegra 2 (it was updated later to reflect exynos! (and i had the old page as one of the tab in my browser to confirm that!)

PhoneArena ought to leave an "update" or an "edited" note if they change any content!

You will be happy because it has Exynos, not Tegra 2. ;)

Hope it's not made out of plastic. How big is the batt?

I am wondering about the battery as well. Thin form factor doesn't exactly make for large battery capacity.

Yes, pretty sure they said quad core gpu. That would be mali 400 in exynos aka orion.

Did you even READ the article?

posted on 13 Feb 2011, 14:19

16. sergio1990 (unregistered)


Yes, but it was some hours ago. Then this article stated it has Tegra 2 and after few hours it changed to it's current state.

sergio, you were right!

besides, even now the article still says "Most likely Samsung's Exynos"

I guess I'll have my fingers crossed as well! ;)

Along with these sweet specs, I really wished however for a stock Android! No more delays from Sammy's end! Now that would be, like ppl say "Bitchin!"

WoW o_o but still there is something wrong 4.3" and resulation of 480x800! I know it's superAMOLED but it's not enough for this big screen I hope there's no pixels like galaxy s1

sadly I fear verizon will avoid this to funnel people to their iphone

Why would Verizon need to funnel people to their iPhone? People who want an iphone will get an iphone anyways, people who want the S2 may now consider a different carrier if Verizon decides to pass on this.
