T-Mobile Hercules is a Samsung Galaxy SII Variant

August 8, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

T-Mobile customers can now add a bit of Sammy to their portfolio. The Samsung Hercules that is coming to the carrier’s network has more to it than the name that’s being spoken about. The smartphone that will acquire the Hercules name for T-Mo is, in fact, a Samsung Galaxy S II variant.

The Samsung Hercules, as we had already heard, is to come on both T-Mobile and Telus. Very much similar to the original we all have already read lots about, the Hercules boasts properties such as a larger 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen, an 8 megapixel camera on the back,  a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor and a 42Mbps HSPA+ radio. We believe the 2 megapixel shooter will also stay.

A look at the form factor will reveal that the device has a rear cover that has rounded corners. Now, that is akin to what the Within (Sprint’s Galaxy S II version) sports.

No mention has been made about the NFC feature – though we wish Hercules to bring that on too. The device will obviously run on Google Android 2.3 OS, and will be ably aided by Samsung’s own TouchWiz feature. We also hear Netflix might come preloaded at launch.

Those who have already know about the Galaxy S II would be happy to know T-Mobile will have their customized version.

The carrier’s Hercules is expected to be a charmer, by what we see in the images posted along side, courtesy of TMO News. Take a look and tell us if you would want to own the device.
