Apparently, Verizon Wireless will not offer Samsung Mobile’s most popular smartphone.
Summary: A new leak reveals renders for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S II line for the United States market. T-Mobile’s, AT&T and Sprint’s Galaxy S2 variants all have capacitive buttons, and no lawsuit-friendly home physical.
PocketNow on Friday has posted the first promo images for the Samsung Galaxy S II United States edition/s sporting the logos of the carriers that will offer Samsung’s most popular handset to date.
Samsung Mobile is expected to formally announce the device next month, including the price tags and the availability for each smartphone variant, although rumors say Sprint Nextel could be the first US carrier to offer the Samsung Galaxy S II that may include the carrier’s 4G/WiMax. The Samsung Galaxy S2 for Sprint is expected to sport the branding, Epic Touch 4G, following the popularity of the carrier’s Samsung Epic product line.
Meanwhile, AT&T’s Samsung Galaxy S II resembles the Samsung Infuse 4G, the carrier’s biggest Samsung phone with 4.5-inch capacitive screen. T-Mobile’s Galaxy S2 on the other hand features more rounded edges, similar to Canada carrier Telus’ Samsung Hercules.
Apparently, leaks have already revealed that T-Mo’s Samsung Galaxy S II will sport the name “Hercules” a Roman mythological character. Hercules is a demigod who possessed great power because he’s the son of Zeus. The name “Samsung Hercules” suggests that the T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy S II will possess great power under the hood, courtesy of 1.2 GHz dual-core processor. Sprint and AT&T’s Galaxy S II phones are also expected to include 1.2 GHz dual-core processor.
All Samsung Galaxy S II smartphones for the United States smartphone market lack the physical home button, and some are speculating including the Apple blog Tuaw that the design change is related to the lawsuit filed by Apple against the popular Android smartphone manufacturer.
Samsung Mobile is currently running (officially) a video teaser for the Samsung Galaxy S II US lineup entitled “It’s big,” claiming that the device is big in Europe, Asia, and soon, in United States.
