That the Samsung Galaxy S II is coming to the US is no secret at all – at least three out of the nation's four major carriers are expected to launch the smartphone in the forthcoming months. Which one...

Hope there's more info on this before the Bionic comes out. Got some serious decision making to be done.

Verizon's 4g sucks they can't make any of the dual core phones working on it so what's the point of having it :( the HTC thunderbolt was invented with a dual core processor and got downgraded to snapdragon processor verizon can't seem to get the dual core processor working with a 4g network and never mine updating the dam phones up date the batterys first LOL

What are you smoking? Verizon's 4G is amazing, they just don't have any dual core phones on it yet. Maybe the Galaxy S II can change that.

if youve noticed verizon doesnt actually make the phones, maybe just maybe the manufactuers cant catch up with the speeds of LTE,

Either English is a second language to you or reading comprehension just isn't your strong suit. What you are saying is so nonsensical and untrue it's not even worth discussing.

Dude I know what you are saying. I could never go back to 3G. 4G IS that IMPORTANT. There is a rumor flying around that the Samsung Galaxy S II might not be 4G. I hope that is the reason why there was such a long delay. I hope it was because they were trying to figure out how to put an LTE radio into that THIN Samsung Galaxy S II. I am keeping my fingers crossed. I hope ALL the Samsung Galaxy S II's in the United States of America have 4G. I so hope so! If not then the Samsung Galaxy S II IS NOT the phone for the wife because as you say it’s 4G or BUST!

I firmly believe that if this phone were not LTE, it would be a colossal mistake. This phone is supposed to be their 'Flagship' phone for the next 6-12mo. It needs to be LTE. It doesn't matter that the Charge is LTE, this phone has significantly better specs than the charge.

I agree... my contract is almost up, I think I even qualify for an upgrade (last one under the old rules).

Seems like this fall will be great for me...

I get to choose...

1. Moto Bionic
2. Sammy Function
3. iPhone 5

4g will be a requirement for me, if the function doesn't have it, then its out of the running. iPhone 5 seems to be out because of this.

I want the Samsung function but was thinking about the iphone 5 as well. I pretty sure the iphone 5 will not have LTE support and 6 months later they will come out with the iphone 5-4g.

i dont understand why they wouldnt. The Sprint version is Wimax right? The att version is "4g", and the Tmobile version is 4g as well.. its supposed to be one of the first (if not THE) that support the full 42mbs upgrade.

we don't know if ANY of them will have 4G in the US yet. i haven't counted HSPA+ out because i don't think that's too much of a hassle to include but WiMAX and LTE might not make it on to a first gen Galaxy S II.

then either WiMAX has either come further than i expected or Samsung knows how to make a WiMAX phone unlike Motorola & HTC.

Played around with another one last night.. It's too light and too thin and as such you have to be very careful in the way you hold it.

it needs more "body".

Never Can be light enough or thin enough because then u can slap a otterbox case on it without it being bulking.

Metal is over hyped, it makes a phone heavier. I'd rather have plastic.

Ideally, I'd rather have carbon fiber!

i like the weight, it gives a sense of durability and it reminds me how valuable it is.

It's still too early to say. The article CLEARLY says "MIGHT" So don't bet your mom's house just yet, because you "MIGHT" lose & then you won't have a place to live in. lol

i'm still willing to bet Sprint will be the first carrier to release it.

A couple months ago, there was a leaked picture of the Attain, the AT&T version, in a cradle. So, AT&T was close to having it. Then, Sprint and the Within were in the gossip column as they were debating if THEY were going to get it first, with the Epic 2 coming in the fall. Now, Verizon- you are on deck.

Are we sure these things exist?

Between this, the ever delayed Bionic, the missing in action HP Pre 3, and the myth's that are the entire line of 2011 Blackberry phone offerings, who will win the race to be last?
