AT&T has recently pointed out that they will make a 4G smartphone, Samsung Galaxy S II, available October 2nd. This Android 2.3 gadget sports a 4.3 inch Amoled Plus touchscreen and a dual core 1.2 GHz processor, thereby making this model the fastest AT&T smartphone.
Galaxy S II will use HSPA + the 4G network of AT&T which is very different from a 4G LTE network. Although this is not LTE, it is important to point out that HSPA + is faster than 3G, and can offer download speeds up to 21Mbps. Galaxy S II is currently the thinnest smartphone that is available in the cell phone industry at the moment and measures just around 0.35 inches at its thinnest. With HDMI output at 1080p, Galaxy S II enables its users to rent as well as buy movies from the Samsung Media Hub. These movies can then be seen on television with the aid of a HDTV smart adapter.
Samsung Galaxy S II sport two cameras. This is a feature that is becoming common with present day smartphones as it makes space for video chats. While the rear camera of this model is 8MP thereby making it a high-end smartphone camera, the front camera of this model is also pretty good at 2MP.
A spokesperson for Samsung pointed out that the Galaxy S II, a model that is available with different names, is the fastest selling smartphone of Samsung. This international model was launched in the month of April, and has succeeded in selling around 5 million units worldwide within just a few months.
Sprint has already been selling the Epic 4G Touch. Verizon said that they will not sell any version of this Samsung model as it already has a wide range of Android smartphones under its belt. Verizon is currently the top seller of Android models with The Motorola Droid Bionic and the Droid Charge. Verizon will probably start selling the Samsung Stratosphere. According to blog reports, this model is their version of Samsung Galaxy S II.
Some of the very powerful models that are currently using fast networks like HSPA+ and LTE have disappointed users with their poor battery life. Let us keep our fingers crossed and hope that this model does not suffer from anything like this.
