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

Will T-Mobile launch this beast as the Samsung Hercules or as the Galaxy S II?
Back in May, we described the Samsung Hercules for T-Mobile, as being like a Samsung Infuse 4G on steroids. Like the Infuse 4G, which is available to AT&T customers, the Hercules offers up a huge 4.5 inch WVGA Super AMOLED display. Other specs for the Hercules include Android 2.3 on board and a Qualcomm 1.2GHz dual-core APQ8060 processor under the hood.

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.
