Samsung Galaxy S II coming next month to major carriers According to multiple reports, Samsung's new flagship Galaxy S II smartphone will go on sale next month for major U.S. carriers.
The device was first unveiled at the MWC in February and is on sale in Europe and Asia.

It has been dubbed the world's thinnest phone.

Samsung's new "superphone" has a 4.27-inch WVGA Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen, Android 2.3.4, a 1.2GHz Samsung dual-core processor, an 8.49mm thin chassis (at lowest), an 8MP camera with autofocus and 1080p recording, NFC support, a 2MP front-side camera and HSPA+, WiFi a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0+HS.

Furthermore, the device will run on Samsung's updated TouchWiz UI and weighs just 4 ounces.

Samsung said there are already over 4 million pre-orders of the device, which should be a huge seller for the company.

T-Mobile's getting it for sure. They've carried the Galaxy since day one

I think Samsung missed a great opportunity by waiting so long to launch this phone in the States. If they released it around April it could have been getting nice sales numbers throughout the Spring and early Summer. When they release it in late July it's already going to be very close to the iPhone 5 release and more people are going to use their upgrades to get iPhones instead.

Great.....just got an Atrix last week cause I was getting too impatient to wait for this phone. Looks like I'll be returning it and grabbing this instead

I KNEW IT. As usual, Canada gets it dead last. If they haven't announced the release date for Canada by now, it won't be for a very long time. They'll probably do the same thing they did with the Fascinate; remove features such as camera flash, release it very late, and jack up the price. Samsung VP Paul Brennan aka dickhead said that Canada was most likely to get it before the US. I already knew the guy was full of s***.
