    If this comes out on Tmobile and Sprint at $199 on contract, before VZW gets it, what are the chances big red doesnt screw us with a $299 price tag?

    $249 is my limit

    Plan on paying $299.00. All their LTE phones are at that price point.

    Not exactly. The TBolt and Revolution both started at $249. Only the Charge was at $299. That said, I'd expect the GSII to come out at $299 IF it has LTE. If only 3G, I'd say the max is $249.

    But if you are willing to wait a few months the price will drop.

    I think we have all waited "a few months" already

    3G = $199
    4G = $299

    If they charged $299 for the Charge, you can definitely bet they'll do the same for the SGSII. However, Preach said he knew a GSII tester and said it wasn't an LTE device. So, there is no definitive answer, but your price range is between $199-$299. If it does end up with LTE save up an extra $50 from next pay day and pick it up. It'll be worth it. :P

    This...I doubt that if it was 3G it would be more than 199. That would be suicidal.

    Well CK said it was LTE and he swears by his source so I guess we will find out soon enough if it is lte or 3g.

    Well I meant it as you put alot of faith in it not that you actually said swear lol. I just find it hard to believe that the testers say it is 3g since they are the ones with hands on and report any bugs and that back that they would not know what they are talking about unless they did a complete redesign like the bionic went through but I highly doubt that happened.

    i'd also put my money on the gs2 coming out with lte. we've already confirmed (albeit with leaks) that sprint's version has wimax, and t-mo's version has hspa+. i can't foresee vzw getting a 3g-only version and losing a lot of (potential) customers to their competitors

    I'm not aware of any testers leaking info right now. Where did you see this?

    Newbie here and I thought I would throw this out there if no one has seen it yet. Looks like Samsung's able to throw the LTE radio in a similar sized phone according to the report on Phonearena.."The new Korean LTE version of the SII"

    Galaxy S II gets an LTE version, spotted in Korea - Phone Arena

    According to Is this Samsung Galaxy S II LTE Phone codenamed Celox? - Sammy Hub

    Looks like it's going to Germany.

    Interesting that they threw the Snapdragon in there.

    If it comes out same time as Bionic, it will not be LTE and will be priced $199 vs Bionic $299.

    If it comes out end of Sept it will have LTE for $299.

    If the SGSII doesn't have the Exynos in it then I don't want it. To me that was honestly the only thing keeping me on board with the phone. And I will definitely take OMAP over Snapdragon any day of the week.

    Can someone explain the differences between the processors? If you arent into games, do they really matter that much?

    Purely speculation. Thinking from a marketing standpoint. You wouldn't want to put to LTE phones out at the same date. Well unless one wasn't LTE and had a clear price difference. I honestly don't thing it's coming to Verizon anytime soon. I'll go ATT or Verizon whichever has it first. Sprint isn't an option for me.

    You can read through this. It doesn't go into great detail, though.

    The real world performance speaks for itself. Take a look at the Sensation or Evo 3D and then the SGSII. The SGSII opens things almost instantaneously, and everything is incredibly smooth. Unless Sammy just so happened to write the code for TouchWiz with Apple-like efficiency, I don't think we'd see the same performance with a Snapdragon in it. :/

    Well it could save returns from those who just get a phone to return it a week later for something else. If they were both out people could get what they originally wanted.

    Is there any advantage for VZW to make this $299? I would venture to say that you would rule out 25% (minimum) of potential customers who would have bought it at $199. The iPhone price should be the standard. I won’t buy it for $299 on VZW. If I had a lower monthly fee like Sprint, I might go that high, but the fact that their monthly fees are so expensive should keep all phones $199 or less.

    The profit margin might not be as great for $199 v $299, but through the higher volume of sales at $199, I think you make that up easily. Plus, your sales numbers would look that much better VS the iPhone.
