Back at CES 2012, Samsung and AT&T announced a new handset for the carrier’s 4G LTE network – the Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD. Apart from its unusually long name, the Skyrocket HD, the handset was going to pack in a 4.5-inch 720p Super-AMOLED screen, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. Except for the 720p Super AMOLED HD screen, the Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD is similar to the Skyrocket.
Now, that more than 4 months have passed by since Samsung and AT&T first announced the handset, both the companies have decided to cancel the launch of the product. While AT&T and Samsung have not yet confirmed that the Galaxy S III will be coming to AT&T’s network, the carrier definitely fits Samsung’s statement of the largest and fastest LTE network in the United States. Thus, the decision to cancel the Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD from AT&T and Samsung is definitely a good decision.
Hopefully, the AT&T version of the Galaxy S III will not come with an absurdly long name like the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S III Quad HD LTE.
