Samsung Galaxy S II US Roll Out Imminent; FCC Nod Hints at AT&T Release

May 5, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

So the Samsung Galaxy S II is doing great by any standards in the launch regions of South Korea and the UK. However, our friends the US who have been waiting in anticipation have not got their prayers answered as yet. Folks, you needn’t throw yourselves into disappointment territory as yet. For, here comes FCC detailing that says the device has received approval for GSM 850 and 1900 bands, as well as WCDMA Bands II and V. So that means, the Samsung Galaxy S II will soon arrive on US shores riding the AT&T 3G network.

Doesn’t that sound like good news? The smartphone with the amazing form factor that measures just 8.49mm and a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display will soon be yours.

May be, one reason for you to worry could be the resolution stats that read 800 x 480. But then, look at the other specs, and they are quite a lure.

The Samsung Galaxy S II will hide under the bonnet a dual-core processor. Photography fanatics will get to play with an 8 megapixel rear camera and a  2 megapixel shooter on the front.

Running Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS, the device will have on the connectivity front 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0 and GPS. A 1650 mAh battery will breathe life into the smartphone.

Now with the FCC nod coming through, we think we might get a launch date soon. May be you could pick your device for around $823 when it finally comes.
