    Sprint version of Galaxy S II arriving in September - Los Angeles Gadgets | Examiner.com

    This author was the first to say that VZW would get the SGS2 first in the US. I don't know, lends itself some credence I think. Plus it's been a few hours since anyone dished out any speculation, so here's my go.

    I don't know but my frustration level is going through the roof since the T-Mobile version pics leak just came out when it wasn't even expected to be getting until long after the other carriers. Verizon...still not a drop.

    Forget it. I'm just going to freeze myself in snow until it's released...either I'll unfreeze in time for the release or I'll unfreeze many years in the future and just get the galaxy s100... like cartman.

    Without anything at the FCC, the August release dates are starting to look like a no go. I think everyone is starting to get a little frustrated with a lack of info for the Verizon version. It seems like we will get information sooner rather than later, but it sucks that basically something has come out for the version coming to all other carriers except for Verizon.

    I still think september sounds right since that is when they got the sgs1(fascinate) last year in sept and since they just retired the fascinate it makes sense to release it around that time.

    Verizon moves on Thursdays. That said, they could still drop it this month. The phone can't be used till it clears FCC and Verizon's certifications, but it can be manufactured and shipped...

    Honestly, I would be surprised if we saw it in August...It really is looking like Samsung wants to go a few rounds with Moto and Apple.

    I think it is more to compete with apple than anything since the whole lawsuit fiasco. What better way to do that then come out in sept when the iphone is supposed to be coming out to compete with it head on showing apple they aren't scared. Even if they lose sales to the iphone it would be a message to apple and everyone else that samsung is willing to go head to head with anyone.

    If anything at all, August 26 might be when the pre-orders start?

    Well, I don't think Samsung actually has much say in the actual release date. Typically, carriers have most of the say except in Apple's case...they pretty much dictate to carrier...

    Maybe the 25th, but not the 26th...

    I really hope it comes out tomorrow, but i think you guys are setting yourselves up to be disappointed.

    1. It has to still clear the fcc and Verizon and no carrier will ship thousands of units without passing the tests first, especially LTE. Maybe 3g, but still very unlikely.
    2. If it is indeed LTE, it will launch after other carriers due to its infancy.
    3. If it does release in a few weeks, i'd bet on it being 3g only.

    Remember Serial its not Samsungs first foray into the LTE arena. They put out the Droid Charge. Its not going to take them any more or less time.

    Yes, but this phone wont have their hummingbird or even a exyneos processor,but a rumored NVIDIA or ti dual core. If we want an LTE, I'm betting we will have to wait, but that's jmho

    How do you know it won't have exynos? Also where are you getting TI from? That is said to be in the nexus.

    I've only read rumors and thats why its my opinion. They have fcc tested ti omap for the sgs2.

    I'm truly not trying to be a dream smasher and i really hope I'm wrong, but all I'm saying is be careful about getting your hopes up. I know everytime I have for a phone, it ends up being not what its made out to be.

    thought that was for the gsm version? The only cdma version that came through had the tegra 2 processor.

    Maybe, but you never can tell. They've used every processor made on the sgs2 except Qualcomm. I'm hoping for omap, but honestly, who knows. If it does come out soon LTE will be unlikely since like you've said about the cdma has been tested.
    Since this is wcdma, would the fcc require them to retest for cdma through VZW without LTE?
