Samsung has scheduled a press event on August 29, 2011, in New York City, and judging by the conspicuous “II” on the invitation sent to Android Community, it looks like the Galaxy S II is finally ready to make its US debut. The “major product announcement” the invite promises is one that has been much-anticipated by US Android-lovers: the Galaxy S II has already set sales records for Samsung in Europe and Asia.

In fact, Samsung has had the Galaxy S II on sale outside the US for several months now – we reviewed the European version back in April – and it’s already on sale in Canada, too. You can still see the appeal: a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, dual-core 1.2GHz processor and 8-megapixel camera with Full HD 1080p video recording still leaves the Galaxy S II at the top of its game.

We’ll be headed to New York for all the details on August 29, when hopefully Samsung will tell us exactly when the GSII will go on sale and for how much. Meanwhile, if you’re in the UK remember we’re giving away two Galaxy S II units courtesy of Vodafone!

  • Who else thinks they have waited too long (for whatever reasons)?  I was ready to buy this thing when it was announced, but now I just assume wait and see what else in on offer this holiday season.

    with how ugly ice cream sandwich is looking, (still don’t think those screeners are real) the galaxy s 2 looks that much more sexier.

    @Mark, I agree. I might just wait for the “htc holiday”

  • I don’t understand, Last year the GS was out 1 at a time and took till Sept for the Epic to be released.
    It has not taken that long. I think we just get a little to inpatient. The GSII will be a outstanding phone and it will be worth the wait.
