Verizon might be the first carrier to launch the Samsung Galaxy S II in the US
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.
