Samsung GALAXY S II is on its way to the United States market, there is no doubt about that, and August 29th should bring along more details on the matter.
During a press event in New York City that Samsung already sent invites for, the US flavors of GALAXY S II
will become official, yet it seems that only three of them will be unveiled then.
Some of the latest reports
around the Internet suggest that Verizon wireless will not carry the device, which means that no handset for its network will go official next week.
AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile, however, will have the mobile phone available for purchase on their airwaves, and all of the necessary details on the matter should become official on Monday.
As for Big Red, rumor has it that it planned on having another Samsung smartphone running under Android launched on its airwaves soon, with specifications identical to those inside GALAXY S II, but without the branding.
The other three major wireless carriers in the country will launch the smartphone
as the GALAXY S II, while having the possibility to add their own specific names into the mix as well (a similar move was made with the Galaxy S smartphone last year).
The Samsung device that will land on shelves at Verizon Wireless might easily be included in the carrier's DROID lineup, it seems, though no confirmation on the matter has emerged until now.
All in all, Verizon customers who have been eagerly waiting for the GALAXY S II smartphone to arrive on their carrier's network won't be disappointed, only that they will have to purchase a smartphone featuring a totally different name.
Unfortunately, no info on when the said Samsung device for Verizon might be unveiled is known right now, though chances are that it could become official soon after the other three US flavors of GALAXY S II
are launched, so stay tuned for more on this.
