[NEWS] SAMSUNG GALAXY S II COMING SOON WITH A NEW SLIDE OUT QWERTY KEYBOARD
It’s been almost 3 months since the Samsung Galaxy S II was released all over the world. Though this has been one of the most anticipated devices of the year and has been popping up all over the world, the US remains an exception. In the midst of rage and fury from North American techies, there shines a little spark of hope: leaked images of the Galaxy S II variant for AT&T.
We know it’s hard to believe the phone is just around the corner. But Samsung did mention the Galaxy S II would be here next month (August). We discussed this device yesterday, but now BGR has managed to get more details about the device–and photographic evidence. One of the images shows this as the model SGH-I927, the Samsung device everybody has been waiting for. The images also show the device comes with Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread and an 8 MP camera. And with a Quadrant score above 3000 and 58.5 MFLOPS on Linpack, this device is definitely a contender.
It’s definitely interesting that AT&T’s Galaxy S II will come with a QWERTY keyboard. This should be great for physical keyboard fans; however, those who value aesthetics would probably want the thinner body. But as BGR mentions, the device is still quite slim compared to other physical slide-out keyboard smartphones.
There it is, guys! We finally know something about a US Samsung Galaxy S II, and we should be getting this bad boy soon. All we need to do now is wait for it to be announced and released! Other carriers should get their stuff together soon. What do you guys think? Like the idea of the slide-out keyboard, or do you prefer the “black slab” form-factor? Liking those benchmarks?
