Well some say, “better late than never” is always a good thing…so we’ll have to wait and see if that saying holds true when Samsung releases the Galaxy S II in the United States. President of Mobile Business and Digital Imaging, Shin Jong-Kyun, told reporters today that the ultra-thin super-smartphone should be released in the U.S. “sometime” this August.
He did not however, mention any specific carriers. But we already know that there are variants for AT&T, Verizon and Sprint, the Attain, Function and Within respectively. We have also seen some spy pictures of what looks like a Sprint branded Galaxy S II courtesy of “This is my Next/The Verge” last week.
So the question now is, is it really to late for this beast of a phone to really make an impact. With the Sensation and EVO 3D from HTC already out and selling well and the Motorola Bionic set for August as well and then in just a few short months, we’ll have a new Google Nexus with a rumored Super AMOLED HD display. It might be smart at this point to hold off for a few more months, if you can resist.
