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!
