US Cellular has decided to finally officially announce that a Samsung Galaxy S II version is coming its way soon. We’ve known about this since December of last year, and last month the smartphone was even spotted at the FCC going through the usual testing.
And today it’s official. The Samsung Galaxy S II will be available ‘soon’ for $229.99 (after a $100 mail-in rebate), and new customers may have to sign a new two-year contract to get it at that price.
US Cellular’s Samsung Galaxy S II will have a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen, a 1.2 GHz dual-core Samsung processor, an 8 MP rear camera with LED flash, 16 GB of built-in storage space, and it will (sadly) run Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The Swype keyboard will come preinstalled.
And that’s all we know for now. As you’ve undoubtedly gathered, the carrier strangely didn’t announce a release date, or even a rough time frame for that. However, rest assured that we will bring you all the missing info when we have it.
