Samsung Hercules makes personal appearance at sponsored concert
At a concert Thursday night sponsored by Samsung and Telus, the Samsung Hercules was spotted. Actually, with its 4.5 inch WVGA Super AMOLED screen, it's not hard to spot what is rumored to be the Samsung Galaxy S II variant for both T-Mobile and Telus. Launching with a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm APQ8060 processor and with 1GB of RAM on board, the phone is appropriately named.

An 8MP camera on back captures video at 1080p and a 2MP front facing camera takes self-portraits and can be used for video chat. 16GB of storage can be expanded to as much as 48GB with a microSD card and the phone is NFC enabled. Android 2.3 is pre-installed. As both T-Mobile and Telus have different 3G bands, the Samsung Hercules is expected to be rolled out with T-Mobile's AWS bands along with the more "standard" 850/1900MHz frequencies. All Telus will have to do is take an eraser to the T-Mobile name and write "Telus" over the empty space.

With a late September launch penciled in for the Samsung Hercules, it's interesting that the carrier that at first seemed to be left out of the Samsung Galaxy S II sweepstakes in the States, might end up with a variant pushing some of the highest of high-end specs. For example, as we reported, the Hercules is expected to have 42Mbps connectivity.
