Samsung Galaxy S II one step closer to a US launch, sign up page goes live
Samsung USA has just put up a sign up page for its Galaxy S II flagship smartphone, which obviously means the handset will be released stateside soon. Sure enough, we’ve previously reported that the S II would hit the US market in August, but it’s good to see this (kind of) confirmed on Samsung’s official website.
We already knew that Verizon, AT&T and Sprint would offer at least one version of the new Galaxy each. Now the Carrier preference button on the sign up page suggests the smartphone is also coming to Sprint, US Cellular, MetroPCS, and Cellular South.
Sold in more than 5 million units (mainly in Asia and Europe) since launch, the Samsung Galaxy S II is one of the best Android smartphones ever. It comes with lots of features, including Gingerbread, TouchWiz UI, 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Plus display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8MP camera with 1080p video recording.
A white Galaxy S II also exists, but it’s not clear if it’s going to be available in the US or not.
