Samsung will launch the Galaxy S2 next week, according to a new report without Verizon.
On Monday August 29th Samsung will announce the Galaxy S2 Android phone in New York. Samsung already sold over 5 million of the Galaxy S2 in Europe and Asia. The Galaxy S2 was expected to be released on all four major US carriers. Today though, the Wall Street Journal reports that for some reason Verizon will not carry the Galaxy S2.
So why is Verizon not wanting to sell the most popular new Android phone? Is it because of the upcoming iPhone 5? Maybe we will learn a bit more about this at the Samsung Galaxy S 2 event on Monday. AT&T and T-Mobile are supposed set to launch the Galaxy S2. Sprint is even launching a Galaxy S2 4G model.
At 8.9mm the Samsung Galaxy S2 is very thin. 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.
