Samsung Galaxy S II hits the FCC with support for AT&T 3G
Early reviews of the Samsung Galaxy S II have hit the Internets, and by and large the phone looks like a winner. The device’s 8.49mm form factor is stunning, while its 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display looks spectacular, even if its resolution tops out at 800 x 480. Other specs include a dual-core processor, 8 megapixel rear camera with a 2 megapixel front camera, 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS, a 1650 mAh battery, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
For those of you longing to pick up a Samsung Galaxy S II in the States, we have some good news for you: the device won FCC approval today, suggesting that a US launch is approaching. The device won approval for GSM 850 and 1900 bands, as well as WCDMA Bands II and V, meaning that the device will work on AT&T’s 3G network.
We still don’t have a US launch date for the Galaxy S II, even though the device has already been released in the UK and South Korea. If you can’t wait any longer for the Galaxy S II, you can surf on over to Amazon’s UK site, where the device is available for £498.27, or about $823…plus shipping.
