    Oh man! They changed the camera fitting. I'm not sure what to think of that yet, but at first glance I think I prefer the rectangular and horizontal bezel on the original. I don't see a slide out keyboard so that's a relief. I wish they had taken a shot of the front of it, but in scouring over the shot it doesn't like like they physically changed much. Nice to hear it may ship with 2.3.4.

    Exciting news!

    Not to be a Debbie downer or anything, but that could also be the epic2 if I'm not mistaken. I think we need a profile pic so we can see the thickness of the phone. The GS2 is unbelievably thin so seeing a profile shot would be solid confirmation. Believe me, nobody wants this phone to come to Sprint ASAP more than me. I'm just being realistic. I've gotten my hopes dashed for this phone enough already with the rumored release dates.

    Also, i spoke with otterbox about a case for sprints version of the GS2. They said from what they know the dimensions are the same as the overseas model. They hadn't been given specific spec sheets from Samsung or Sprint, but they haven't been told it would be different in size

    I'm all for being skeptical at this point, but that battery cover and bulge at the bottom looks an awful lot like the SGSII we've seen countless pictures of. I couldn't imagine them designing the back of the Epic 2, which is supposed to repeat the slide out keyboard, the same as the GS2.

    I agree plus no samsung slider has a bulk like that.

    Agreed. This is awesome news. Every review I continue to read about the Samsung Galaxy S2 praises this beast as "The Best Smartphone of 2011". No wonder it is selling in the millions in Europe. The specs. are "off-da-charts", and the screen is considered the new standard and better than the iPhone display. Is the Samsung Galaxy S2 the iPhone Killer?

    I so pumped for this phone next month pending this is all true. coming from the palm pre and all of its hardware problems as much as it took this long to get the sgs2 here it gives me more confidence that it has seen time in the market and should be hitting the us at its best!!

    Now all we need is confirmation that Sprint did not drastically alter the design of the phone. You guys think it'll have a WiMAX radio and the Exynos processor?

    I personally do. Anything less would be disappointing for many. I'd hope Sprint would know that. I'm still curious though if that leaked photo is indeed Sprint's version of the SGS2 or something else entirely, as discussed HERE. There's still a chance that the US carriers didn't make noticeable changes to the form factor. Maybe it's false hope, but I'd be really happy if they simply slapped the Sprint logo on the back and put their radios in it, unless they somehow actually improved something.

    It's great to finally get some word from ANYONE at either Samsung or the US carriers though. Now we just have to wait for the devices to start hitting the FCC and announcements from the carriers.

    I personally would much rather have this than an iphone. it might be a perfect garden from the outside but i dont want to be trapped in there. anything gets sickening after a while.

    Probably not coming to Sprint till September. With the photon coming July 31 Sprint will wait longer than 30 days to release the GS2 so people who bought the photon on release day can't return it

    Does Sprint have a track record of doing things like that??

    I'm not so sure...I mean...how much $$ is the photon compared to the SGS2...maybe half of the consumers look at price and don't know the difference

    Evo 3d was released 6/24. Motorola photon will be released 7/31. I'm guessing the GS2 will be released 9/7. Evo 3d and photon are $200. GS2 will most likely be more. Either $250 or $300. Imho, $300 will be little steep

    The only reason why the Epic was more expensive was because of that keyboard. Since the Within doesn't have a keyboard, it should be the same price. Otherwise, it wouldn't make sense for Sprint to sell their gs2 that doesn't have a keyboard and is similar to the other carrier variants for an extra $50. That would drive away customers.

    You may be right. I think this phone will have a premium price on it. The charge on vzw is $300. I know it's Sprint compared to Verizon, but I would think that Samsung has something to say about what the phones sell for. $300 is just a lot now a days for phone, IMHO. I hope it's $200 but my realistic guess is $250
