    Bigger Screen. Think they'll up the resolution too? I'm thinking the 800 x 480, even with special sub pixels, or whatever, will be a bit pixely...


    Edit: Never mind. I got my own hopes up. According to the "revamped" GS2 LTE, it's a 4.5" screen, but still just WVGA resolution. Stink!

    With Rogers getting the new s2 lte at the end of september I would almost put money on the new ones we are getting here in the states today will be the new specs. I highly doubt that they are just starting the new line for the us with 1.2 processors and canada will get 1.4-5 ones a couple weeks later.

    I'd really like to agree with you, but I just can't. Sprint's GSII has been in pre-production testing since June. The images look exactly like the leaked test photo from the middle of July, and it cleared the FCC just over a month ago. Sadly, all of this tells me Sprint's GSII will have the original specs.

    This is the downside of US carriers demanding personalized variants. It delays releases and inevitably leads to being behind the technology curve. Like Bell Canada, Rogers will likely be releasing the International hardware, which allows them to stay ahead of the curve and release devices with more current specs.

    The Rogers galaxy 2 is gsm. They will always be a few months ahead cdma versions just because they are easier to sell/market.

    Love the screen size.....as long as it looks good if it's still a 400 x 800 screen.

    1.2 is plenty fast enough for me since I don't game.

    I was turned off by 4.5 screen size a couple week ago but I can live with it.
    I'm also content with 1.2 ghz.....as long as its Exynos.
    If it is S2 will be mine with a big smile.

    Yup I'm with you. I'm confident it'll pack a Exynos inside, and the screen size never bothered me. Still, I have to hold the thing in my hands, stick it in my pocket, and fondle it lovingly to see if it purrs before I make a final decision.

    This device will make me seriously consider jumping ship to Sprint. Gonna see what Verizon does to make up for not getting the GS2. But, those on Sprint are gonna be happy campers!

    I couldn't see it being any different than the International version, which is 1GB RAM, 16GB internal memory, and optional SD Card up to 32GB.

    Give Touchwiz 4.0 a go first. You may really like it. It's supposedly vastly improved over prior versions. I have no interest in Sprint ID though. It will be one of the first things I try to uninstall. I'm not optimistic though ... I think it's written into the kernel, so a custom ROM would be the only way to get rid of it.

    i'm happy but sad about the 1.2 vs 1.5 ghz processor, especially since it's available with those specs currently.
