Verizon To Be First U.S. Carrier with the Galaxy S II

We have heard more than a few different stories regarding the Galaxy S II coming to the U.S. but industry analyst Paul Mueller today is shaking things up by stating that Verizon will beat all other carriers to market with the SGSII and it could be here as early as mid August (2-3 weeks). We have heard the name Samsung Function for the Verizon branded model but that is about it.

We did hear reports of Samsung speeding things up to 1.4 Ghz to better compete with the future iDevice 5. That also matches a few of the comments Paul stated today, but then we all know the SGSII will be the biggest competition to the next Apple creation anyways.

I’m not sure about the exact date, but I’ve been told that August 12 is a possibility. It will arrive first on Verizon and then the rest of the carriers within a month. Samsung will market this directly against the iPhone 5,” says Mr. Mueller.

People hear all types of news here and there so I can't really say much regarding this news. We did hear from Samsung's own mobile president that we'd see the devices coming soon not to mention the Galaxy S II for AT&T was leaked this morning already. I think it is safe to say that we should be seeing these phones sometime around mid to late August, or so we hope.

Stay tuned for more information because if a August 12th launch on Verizon is actually a possibility we should be seeing and hearing more details any day now.

    If the phone has no LTE then it will almost certainly be a lost cause.  Who wants to spend their money buying last years technology?  Sure the rest of it would be modern, but speed is important.  Why else does someone care if it has a dual core CPU?  Why not just get the original Galaxy S, or the original Droid if speed and performance / features don’t matter.
