Samsung Hercules Headed to T-Mobile this September?

If the latest reports are accurate we might be seeing the Samsung Hercules land over on T-Mobile this September. If the HTC Sensation or the recently troubled G2x dual-core phones aren't what you desire maybe the Hercules will be, it has great specs to back it up.

In case you haven't heard the Samsung Hercules could very well be the Galaxy S II variant for T-Mobile, with a boosted screen size hitting 4.5" and looking beautiful with that AMOLED display. We haven't seen much of Hercules as of late but he could have recently passed through the FCC.

The Samsung Hercules specs if to be believed feature that 4.5" AMOLED display, Android 2.3 Gingerbread with NFC support. Reports suggesting a Qualcomm 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 16GB storage and 1GB RAM, loaded with a 8MP rear camera as well as a front VGA all topped off with some T-Mobile 4G speeds. Sounds perfect if I don't say so myself. With recent reports about carriers and Samsung not able to agree to a Galaxy S II launch the Hercules will just have to make do, but I'm not complaining.

      of course silly! look @ those specs!!!

      • Manny

        I know its going to get the upgrade at some point in time but I was more concerned with the increase in resolution that will come with the upgrade. Android ICS (4.0) is supposed to have 1280×720 resolution (not for the camera but the actual screen). So when the phone gets the software update, Im guessing its not gonna get the resolution bump?

        Android 4.0 will come with “SUPPORT” for that resolution, doesn’t mean it’s a requirement.

        A phone can’t get a resolution bump like your asking. That is a hardware spec, not software. and yes the phone sounds amazing

    If those specs are correct, that’ll put a test to Qualcomm’s 1.2GHz processor being there’s no high-resolution here. The Evo 3D and Sensation’s benchmarks are not all that impressive (even overclocked). Super Amoled Plus display is killing qHD anyway!

  • Haa haaah

    damn 4,5″.. damn again, android so rocks with that screen size.. oooh my, damn

  • sammy

    so it’s SAmoled or just Amoled ?

      AMOLED is a display type just like LCD/LED but Samsung has their own Super AMOLED displays. People call them all sorts of different things
