According to Tmo News, the Samsung Hercules, a model we previously described as being a Samsung Infuse 4G for Sprint, could actually be the Samsung Galaxy S II for the nation's fourth largest carrier; if true, that would mean that the sizzling hot Android model will be coming to each of the top four carriers in the States...

I wonder if it will be as fast and smooth as the sgs2. I wonder if they are going to make this phone for verizon and sprint too. Poor AT&T the infuse doesn't look too great anymore.

This is not the same phone. GSII has a 4.3" screen and this "hercules" has a 4.5" screen.

Hopefully it won't hinder the device.

im hoping the exynos is a suprize. it hasnt passed FCC yet, so its still all speculation on the actual processor...

but why do they KEEP CALLING IT AN INFUSE ON STEROIDS?!?! the Infuse is a SINGLE CORE processor, this is a dual core. Call it the SGS2's brother if u want, but the only thing it has in common with the infuse is the slightly larger screen. Everything else screems SGS2.

You meant 850/1900 is for AT&T (not T-Mobile which is AWS 1700).

What would really make this beast a Hercules is if it had a qHD resolution screen at 4.5in. Mmmm...

Seems like this will replace my Captivate, until an LTE device comes out for at&t, until then I won't upgrade. :o
