Samsung Galaxy S2 launches in August in the US

Galaxy S2 is probably the nicest Android phone & it's finally coming to the United States.

Samsung is finally bringing their flagship Android smartphone to the United States. The Samsung Galaxy S2 is already on sale in Korea and Europe. Samsung already sold 3 million Galaxy S2 and is now set to launch the S2 in the US next month.

According to Yonhap (via Techmeme), Samsung expects to sell more than 60 million smartphones this year. The Galaxy S2 is an important driver of that sales number. I have already played with the Galaxy S2 and it's definitely a nice device. At 8.9mm it really is very thin. The 4.3-inch AMOLED screen is great and it is fast. Still, I am just not sold on the Android UI. It still doesn't feel as rounded to me as Apple's iOS does. 

Other features of the Samsung Galaxy S2 include a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor with a 4.3" Super AMOLED Plus display and an 8MP camera. Other features include Bluetooth 3.0, HSPA and NFC.

The Galaxy S2 will apparently be sold under different names on each of the major carriers. Verizon will call it Function, Sprint names it Within and AT&T sells the Galaxy S2 as Attain. Samsung really should forbid this. It dilutes the branding of the device. Apple does not allow carriers to invent "creative" names for the iPhone either.
