Will T-Mobile launch this beast as the Samsung Hercules or as the Galaxy S II?

This phone will fly with 42Mbps HSPA+ connectivity making the device a category 24 HSDPA and category 6 HSUPA. Speaking of connectivity, there will be support for AWS plus the 850/1900MHz frequencies for T-Mobile. If the AT&T/T-Mobile deal goes through, the Samsung Hercules is supposed to receive support for AT&T's 4G network. An 8MP camera on the back captures video at 1080p and a front-facing shooter takes self-portraits and works with video chat software. The model will offer NFC support.
The Samsung Hercules is equipped with 16GB of internal ROM, 1GB of RAM and microSD memory can be expanded by as much as 32GB. According to a T-Mobile roadmap that we reported on, this monster could launch on September 26th. Whether or not it launches as the Samsung Hercules or the Samsung Galaxy S II is still unclear. As we had told you, the remaining three of the top four carriers in the country are expected to offer the Samsung Galaxy S II as the Verizon Function, the AT&T Attain and the Sprint Within.

I wonder if it will be as fast and smooth as the sgs2. I wonder if they are going to make this phone for verizon and sprint too. Poor AT&T the infuse doesn't look too great anymore.

im hoping the exynos is a suprize. it hasnt passed FCC yet, so its still all speculation on the actual processor... but why do they KEEP CALLING IT AN INFUSE ON STEROIDS?!?! the Infuse is a SINGLE CORE processor, this is a dual core. Call it the SGS2's brother if u want, but the only thing it has in common with the infuse is the slightly larger screen. Everything else screems SGS2.
