All three Samsung Galaxy S II variants for the US pose together in a leaked shot

All three Samsung Galaxy S II variants for the US pose together in a leaked shot
With Hurricane Irene bent on making its way towards the Big Apple, where Samsung expects to hold a media event on Monday to disrobe the veil from its upcoming line of Galaxy S II smartphones, we’re getting our first look at them all.

In the leaked image below, we can plainly see the specific Samsung Galaxy S II variants coming to AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile – with Verizon obviously out of the mix.  Looking at them, they don’t appear to drastically differ in design from the international version that’s been available for some time – albeit, they shed the physical home button found with the original. For the most part, the three handsets appear to have the same looking design on the surface.

Now that’s out of the way, the only thing left going forward is to know each of their respective release dates and pricing. Unless the hurricane spells doom for the Big Apple, we’ll know that information hopefully soon enough.

Miz you're an idiot with no life, and the most people are going to respond to your post is with thumbing it down. Ever thought why virtually ALL your posts in every article are massively thumbed down? Because we're all "Android fanboys"? Think again you troll.

oh look the homo avatar child with a negative comment about an Android phone.....what were the odds? why dont you go talk the the rest of the sheeple that buy any bullshyte that Steve Jobs puts out......."people I know the specs and performance isnt there but it has an i in front of it so it has to be better"

I bet anything Steve Jobs coughs up would be a lot better than anything with Android on the cover. You know, Froyo's symbole was a perfect symbol for Android phones, and I'll just leave it at that. It's amazing how all of you complain over some silly comments. Lol, please get over it.

Why the hell does Samsung change the design for U.S.? Do Americans not like a physical home button. The iPhone sheep and half of America beg to differ... I don't get it. I love being able to power up my phone by clicking the front. Back to HTC I'm sure the GPS is all jacked up anyway. Hey, doesn't Samsung dim the screen and disable movies/camera/picture viewing at 15% battery too? And you can't disable it. You can't.

Lawsuits buddy, also if you want that button so bad get an iPhone dude! Android experience doesn't need it, real Androids have 4 buttons, at least until ICS arrives that is

83. Ampd1985 unregistered

The probable reason behind the slight design change is more than likely due to the lawsuit between Samsung and Apple. Apple says "Samsung is copying the look & feel of their iPhone" HAHAHA.

Because Samsung copied the home button off the iPhone and we all know they can't come up with their own ideas.

they look nearly identical except that the tmobile version is slightly more rounded. i guess that is to make it feel smaller since it has the larger screen. guess samsung isnt afraid of apple, miz. :)

it's funny, the only differences is the corners with AT&T's being the more angular then Sprint's being the next and T-Mo's being the roundest.

That is the PERFECT observation. I personally like the middle of the line. It has some curves, but not like the T-Mobile version. I guess that is why they put the Sprint version in the middle.

I also like the sprint one as well ! the tmo one does look more like the galaxy s.. not very appealing :( im hoping the bigger screen makes up for it

I think all those phones will be kick a$s. I agree with you about the T-Mobile version, but I think they are making it look like a Vibrant on purpose. I just STILL can't get over Verizon NOT having the most powerful phone that money can buy right now. I am flabbergasted! Dude you WILL be SO happy when you get the Samsung Galaxy S II. That screen is going to be killer!

yeah, i personally like the looks of the more angular AT&T version but i think the Sprint version would be the perfect compromise between looks and comfort. i'd have to see the backs to make my real judgement though.

im pretty sure they are designed that way to flow from the original SGS1 designs for all 3 carriers. The hercules just looks like a bigger SGS1.. which is fine by me.

I like the look of T-mobile one best.

Actually I find that the version the least attractive but each to their own I guess. AT&T version looks nice but I have had... a bad experience with their network so I'm going to go with the Sprint version probably.

too much thunder .. no lighting on this phones.. verizon is the only smart for not offering this phone that will live up to the hype... most likely no exynos.. hmmm so sammy followers. bent over and take it like a man... and no 4G.. all the ones critisasing the iphone for not having 4G .. please would like to hear you guys again...

gallito, like normal you talk without any information SGS2's quads all match exynos.. so its a 95% chance of being exynos. the Tmobile variant has already been confirmed a dozen times with being the first 42mb/s 4G phone in america. The ATT variant has their crappy hspa+ and i dont remember hearing one way or another about Wimax but i would be surprised if it didnt have it for sprint. if it doesnt have exynos then I'll probably skip it for the Nexus Prime. that easy. so there, u heard us.. now dont u feel silly like normal.. lol.
