    If BMX said that its too thin for the LTE version, and that they need to make it bigger, maybe they made it bigger but then it was too thick and so they just threw in a keyboard. I don't know anymore....
    Nah. Its either as thick or thinner than the Charge

    Actually what BMX said was that the current generation of LTE chips would not fit into the current form factor of the GSII. Samsung could have come up with another LTE chip that could fit (didn't they use their own for the Charge?) or they could have made it thicker to accommodate. So, it's not out of the question that it can still be LTE.

    @black_man_x but will the galaxy s2 be an lte device. If so that's the selling point for me.

    @black_man_x question is will it also be 4G LTE if it comes to Verizon like the bionic?

    @PHoldridge7232 nope...least not anytime soon.. charge is the sammy lte device.. n vzw doesnt love their customers that much.

    and He also said there will be an epic 4g follow up (the slider) black_man_x The Panda King

    @DiGTALDementia moto device is coming.. there is also a wp7 device coming that rather low end. there is also an Epic4g followup

    He is adamant about it being only 3g.
    Edit: And unfortunately I think all the evidence points to the stratosphere being the Epic slider and the device on the 29th being the GS2 as a 3g phone.

    He is a reliable source but I agree. Soon enough we will all find out and we can all go out day one and get a hot new phone...even if it isn't Verizon's version LOL.

    Every "leaked" roadmap I've seen of late is inaccurate. BMX, though I don't want to believe him, may be right. I really want it to be 4g, but all the evidence points to 3g. I pray it isn't as much as ck. I have a rooted tb, but want a dual core powerhouse and root it also.

    For all we know it could be in real world testing like the Bionic. They clearly are very good at keeping leaks from happening considering we knew nothing about this phone until less then a week ago. If they were able to keep that kind of lock on all the lips, I don't see why they wouldn't be able to continue to do that.

    Also, a release of the SGSII on the 29th of September makes absolutely no sense to me. If that is true and it actually is a 3G phone then that means it has taken them 4 months to release a phone in the US and they didn't change a single thing. At least with Sprint etc. they changed it so it has WIMAX. Why would they wait 4 months to release a phone that hasn't been changed at all? That's just a really bad business plan.

    Wouldn't they have to change the 3G antennas?

    There isn't evidence of it being either. People are only speculating. There are 2 unverified rumors going around. 1 that it has it and 1 that it wont and somebody is going to right.

    Its kind of a no brainer for it to be LTE but what do I know

    @mastergiraffe. Your right nobody seems to acknowledge how odd it is that the device has been kept from the public up until a few days ago and is scheduled to launch in just over a month.

    Their stuck on why no FCC. Who cares about the fcc why hasn't anything been leaked and what the heck is it. Why the secrecy?

    Its launching at the same time as the Bionic and there's zero info on it? That's not normal lol.

    Now if this roadmap is bunk then it would all make sense, but if its real I'm stumped how this happened and why.

    I agree usually when they keep things under wraps like this it is for 1 of 2 reasons. 1. The phone is going to be something special and they don't want people to know until the last minute or 2. The phone is average and they aren't going to do much marketing for and will probably sell a decent amount maybe even less than an average amount.

    I'm all in as well....and I didn't even look at my cards.

    I feel like because of the name, the Stratosphere is probably the S2. Given that we are just a month away, I doubt we will be waiting too much longer before we find out.

    Now in the worst case scenario the 3G device at the end of September is the S2, then I might have to rethink what I'm going to do. Might go back to waiting on the Nexus Prime. While I hate the idea of keeping my Storm, I'm also having to pay unexpectedly for some car repairs. I'm sure we all know how that can suddenly change/ruin plans.

    At one point I was okay with just getting a 3G S2, but now I would prefer to get a device that will last me for a while and I'm now looking to move sooner rather than later into an LTE area.

    By the time this thing rolls out you should be able to save up some more pennies and you will be back in the game.

    I agree. I doubt they would require the same testing for a phone that has been out in the rest of the world for many months now. But if it is the slider with GS2 internals you would think they would need more than just a month of testing due to such a big change in structure.
    actually they would. seeing as how everything that they're actually testing is different from the versions that have already been tested.

    Well as long as they weren't having lots of issues I could see a month being plenty of time to test a phone the only reason the bionic took so long is because it had continuous issues.

    i agree with you esp considering all they're really doing is checking that whatever independent lab that samsung hired to do the initial testing is accurate and truthful.

    if they're even doing that much.

    So in terms of validating whether or now this leaked roadmap is credible at all, the first things to launch are two Pantech feature phones. Has anything from Pantech cleared the FCC rocking VZW frequencies lately?

    Since it seems that no matter how much testing they do they still push phones through with a ton of issues(droid x2, tb, etc)

    I think that this might be one of the phones that is expected to hit version before the Stratosphere and the Bionic. It is a pantech phone that has a GPS/WIFI antenna and a CDMA atenna. It passed through the FCC on the 28th of July so there is a good chance that this is the phone slated for a release in that first week of September.

    Well if it is one of those phones then it seems to atleast somewhat validate this leak. Guess in a few weeks we will find out.
