Samsung Galaxy S II i9100 is given a concrete launch date of April 25th in Korea
Yesterday, we reported about some great news surrounding the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S II, but there was still no specific mention about a concrete launch date except that some countries would see it this month.

Considering that the Android powered smartphone is a product out of South Korea, it’s only fitting for the country to receive a firm launch date. From the sound of it all, the Samsung Galaxy S II will be launching in South Korea starting on April 25th – which still happens to be the only region given an actual date. As for other markets though, we’re still literally in the dark about its arrival, but it wouldn’t surprise us to see some other markets get in on the same date.

Regardless, there are surely going to be many people excited about this eventual successor – even more when it competes highly with all the other new crop of devices out there.

OMG! Samsung... NO 4G? what? why spend money on this phone when every great phone in the next six months, including an upgrade to this one ... will have 4G... i just can not believe Samsung was this stupid... I mean ... unbelievable... AND, for some reason... no one is talking about it... The emperor has no clothes!

there hasnt been a solid american launch prediction yet. Everything so far is for europe and asia. I would assume its june/july which would put it at the 1 year anniversary of the sgs1

Does this really mean it will not come out in May as predicted and will come out after the supposed switch to tiered data pricing on Verizon :( Are we going by historical precedence in our assumptions?

just tell me they replaced the RFS file system with EXT4 and im a happy camper. So, if its april in Korea, that puts it at probably june/july for america. That seems about right since thats right about the time when the original GalaxyS launched. Earlier is always better though. :)

Yes, it will have EXT4 system. 2.3 doesn't use RFS system. Some testers in Europe discovered that it indeed has EXT4. So rejoice!
