AT&T has also announced its own variant of the Samsung Galaxy S II, at the on-going event in New York. Unlike the Sprint’s Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch, AT&T’s Galaxy S II will be known as the Galaxy S II only.
The handset has no major difference compared to the European version of the SGS II, except for the four capacitive keys instead of the one hardware and 2 capacitive keys found on the European counterpart.
The Galaxy S II, powered by a dual core application processor, paired with AT&T’s advanced 4G network, gives users fast download speeds along with a premium multi-tasking experience,said Dale Sohn, president of Samsung Mobile. We are proud to bring our fastest selling smartphone in the world to AT&T customers, packaging it in the nation’s thinnest 4G smartphone.
AT&T’s Galaxy S II is powered by the same Exynos 4210 SoC, which includes a powerful 1.2GHz dual-core processor and an ARM-Mali 400MP GPU. The handset also sports a beautiful 4.3-inch Super-AMOLED+ screen with WVGA (800×480) resolution. AT&T’s version of the SGS II is just a tad bit thicker than its European version, at 8.89mm.
Other features of AT&T’s Galaxy S II remain the same, which include 1GB of RAM, 16GB internal memory, microSD card slot, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0+HS, FM radio, MHL port, GPS with A-GPS and sensors like Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Ambient light sensor and a proximity sensor.
Like all other Galaxy S II variants, the back of the AT&T’s Galaxy S II also sports an 8MP camera with an LED flash, and a 2MP front-facing camera. The handset is also capable of recording videos in 1080p HD video resolution. The handset also supports AT&T’s HSPA+ network, but does not support its upcoming 4G LTE network. A 1650mAh battery will power the handset. The handset runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, with TouchWiz 4.0 on top of it.
AT&T’s version of the Samsung Galaxy S II will be released in the “coming weeks”, at an unknown price.
