White Samsung Galaxy S II coming mid-August?
The Samsung Galaxy S II has been breaking sales records over at Samsung since day 1, but now to further cement its position, it is expected to come painted in white, according to a listing at UK online retailer Clove. The white version of the 16GB Galaxy S II is expected to hit shelves August 15th at the retailer, but there was no word whether we can expect a similarly colored model stateside.

The price of the albino S II will set you back nearly $795 (£492, VAT included), some $20 more than that of the standard version. Sadly, the listing doesn't provide a picture of the white handset, but if you feel adventurous, you can pre-order the phone even without seeing it. Not surprisingly, the new model is identical to the black Galaxy S II, sporting a 1.2GHz dual-core chip and a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen. Is the white Samsung Galaxy S II a good enough reason to break the piggy bank? Feel free to share your opinions in the comments below.

well, apple doesnt own the "white". white is trendy, so why not to release this phone in this color?
i enjoy my black sgs2 and wouldnt buy a white phone anyways, but i dont see any copy here. the first iphone was black and wasnt a copy from other black phones out before 2007.

Apple might not own the color white, but they might just sue for it.

What lol? I'm just saying, Samsung surely isn't copying Apple here. I mean first the UI of the Galaxy S looks like the iPhone's UI, but NOW they're copying designs now lol? No wonder Apple's suing the pants off them.

The fascinate comes in white, looks, feels or operates nothing like the iphone, maybe they were copying their old design.

iPhone 4 owner here, and I drool over the Galaxy SII (black OR white don't care). Wishing I could just pay my carrier $200-$400 flat rate a year for the privilege of trading in my phone for the latest every month.

I know what you mean man! Best Buy offers that buy back program that the will buy back newly purchased electronics that are under 2 years old, so maybe that will work, but you may have to buy the phone out right, but since they will buy it back for the fair market value, when it comes time that you want to upgrade you will only be looking at $100-$200.

Well it already looks like the iPhone and they made the UI the most similar to the iPhone out of any android I've seen. Now it comes in black and white just like the iPhone. Blatant copying.

apple doesn't own the color white you know,
grow up, is swiping across screens a similar UI, oh wait..... didn't apple copy the LG prada's UI, yes they did.

apple only innovated with multi-touch nothing else.

Lmao at Apple copying the prada. What are you smoking. Any reasonable person can see that Samsung is copying including the courts.

i know samsung is copying. but what pisses me off is that apple fanboys absolutely deny that apple is copying too (like notification centre).
and no need to LMAO at the LG prada, if you see, it was the first with a capacative screen, and the first to use swiping actions in their UI. luckily for apple, LG has morals, unlike apple.

I am not talking about the color... first off, i despise iPhone, i just didn't feel like getting flamed by that moron miz. but black white pink green, whatever color, the SGS2 design is a blatant iPhone copy, in design only, i mean think about it, the normal person would think you had an iPhone if they saw the sgs2 in your hands,,,, ( if it was off, i realize once the soft touch buttons light up its different... ) but let us android users not be as blind as the iSheep.... the phone looks just like an iPhone, the main difference will be once they are turned on, it'll be like a ford focus (iPhone) vs. a bugatti veyron ( sgs2) haha

Who cares if they are copying each other, we don't benefit from any lawsuits. If you like Apple iPhones, Android OS devices, etc then good for you. The only thing we should complain about is if you do own any devices and it breaks or fails on you then complain all you want.

I owned both iPhones and Android OS devices and to me they all do the same. Call, text, email, play games, watch movies, web, etc. All seems fine and the same to me.

Apple made the white phones popular... they released the white iphone and sold them in bunches. Apple doesnt invent but makes what ever is in the market and makes it popular... Samsung and HTC wich are being sued by Apple have released white phones that Apple makes popular... Thats why Motorola doesnt get sued.. they do their own thing ..for better or worse....

spelled check doned from my almighty Drod X

So Apple made white phone popular huh? Lol Man what is with you Apple fans. You all have your heads so far up Apple's you know what that all you seem to see is Apple. BlackBerry and Nokia had white phones which were popular way before Apple came into the picture. I think it's freaking hilarious that Apple fans swear Apple did everything first. I mean seriously get over yourselves and pull your head out of Apple's you know what so you can see the light.

I must admit that Apple's number one down fall has to be that they are spreading themselves too thin by focusing on both hardware and software, whereas Android is sticking to what they do best and are joining with the pros to do the rest. After all what does Apple know about making phones compared to the other companies that have been making them for years before Apple came on the scene. That's why Apple keeps making stupid mistakes just as they did with the iPhone 4 where it had connection issues it you held it a certain way.

Oh and how can people honestly say that Android OS is just like iOS? Last time I checked you can't customize your home screens on iOS as you can with Android and iOS doesn't offer widgets like Android does either.

Those poor Apple fans are so lost. They are trying to compare their Fiero kit car (iPhone) to Samsung's Ferrari (Galaxy S2). Although they may look similar the way the perform is day and night.
