Samsung Galaxy S II officially arriving at Telstra Australia on July 26

Telstra has officially confirmed that it would launch the Samsung Galaxy S II in Australia later this month, more exactly on July 26.

The new Android Gingerbread smartphone will be available on a variety of plans (starting at $59 per month). Those who want to buy it off-contract wil have to pay $840 for it.

Already sold in more than 3 million units around the world, the Samsung Galaxy S II seems to be one of the best smartphones ever. It’s extremely thin (8.5mm) and packs lots of high-end features, including a 4.3 inch WVGA Super AMOLED Plus display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 2MP front-facing camera, 8MP autofocus rear camera, and 1080p video recording.

According to Telstra, its Galaxy S II will have “a number of improvements” (thanks to the rigorous tests it’s been through). These include: enhanced UI performance and responsiveness, better UMTS 850 RF sensitivity for reduced “instances of call drops and improved data speeds,” enhanced stability when used as a Wi-Fi hotspot, enhanced “data throughput rates when used as a tethered modem on some operating systems,” and enhanced attachment handling when using the e-mail client.

Vodafone and Optus will also introduce the new Samsung Galaxy S II in Australia soon.
