Samsung Galaxy S II US release date set for August

Samsung Galaxy S II US release date set for August
Land of the free and home of the brave, America is, but sadly that doesn't include Samsung's latest brave flagship, the Galaxy S II. We've been waiting for the dual-core 4.3-inch Android Gingerbread powerhouse for months, but now the end of the waiting is near as the phone should be available stateside “sometime in August,” Samsung's head of mobile business, Shin Jong-kyun, confirmed at the launch of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in South Korea.

We already know that Verizon, AT&T and Sprint are expected to get the phone under different monikers: the Samsung Function for Verizon, the Samsung Attain for AT&T and the Samsung Within for Sprint. Shin however did not give an exact date other than the vague August timeframe neither did he provide a price or any other details. 

The Galaxy S II in its various reincarnations is expected to directly rival the next-gen iPhone and no wonder – it's among the best Android handsets out there. Sales numbers are the first to confirm that as the phone has been available outside the States for months selling over 3 million in just 55 days. Our review of the Galaxy S II covers all the details of the dual-core phone, so feel free to check it out keeping your fingers crossed that the handset is indeed coming in August.
