Verizon might be the first carrier to launch the Samsung Galaxy S II in the US
That the Samsung Galaxy S II is coming to the US is no secret at all – at least three out of the nation's four major carriers are expected to launch the smartphone in the forthcoming months. Which one would be the first one to do so, however, is something that pretty much nobody can say for sure at this time.

However, according to LA-based industry analyst Paul Mueller, Verizon will most likely be the first US carrier to offer the Samsung Galaxy S II with AT&T and Sprint to follow within a month after that. Furthermore, it is said that the smartphone's exact release date has not been set in stone just yet, but it is quite possible to see the Galaxy S II landing in the carrier's outlets as early as August 12.

The Samsung Function, as Verizon's version of the Galaxy S II will be named, is expected to remain pretty much unchanged in terms of hardware with the same 1.2GHz dual-core Exynos chipset ticking under its hood. Some other features that the smartphone boasts are a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, 8-megapixel camera capable of shooting 1080p HD video, GPS, Wi-Fi, 32 gigs of internal storage and Android 2.3 Gingerbread running the whole show.
