Samsung Galaxy S II Hercules clearly headed to Telus, shows up in new pictures
Samsung is finally getting ready to launch the Galaxy S II in the US, in different versions for each major carrier, just like it did with the original Galaxy S. One of those versions is the Hercules, which will be T-Mobile’s Galaxy S II.
Although it looks like aside from serving that purpose, the Samsung Hercules will also reach Canadian carrier Telus. Earlier this month, we showed you a photo of a Telus Hercules, and today we have an additional couple of shots leaked thanks to MobileSyrup.
As you can see, the device looks like a blend of the internationally-selling Galaxy S II, the Google Nexus S, and the Samsung Infuse. Which is to say, the Hercules clearly has the right genes. As for specs, we only know what has been rumored time and time again. The phone should come with a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen, and an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording. There will also be a front-facing camera, possibly a 2 MP unit, and the handset will run Android Gingerbread, naturally.
There’s no info yet on when exactly Telus will start selling the Hercules, or for how much, but the latest leak claims that in the USA, T-Mobile will release it on October 26. That means that those of you in Canada waiting to get your hands on this one may have to wait a couple of months to do that too. Or maybe Telus will manage to be faster than TMo. We’ll let you know.
