The Battle Continues: Samsung To Appeal Apple’s European Injunction

It’s coming! It’s finally, finally coming!

After nearly four months of traveling around just about everywhere but the US, the Galaxy S II is finally set to make its stateside debut. Samsung will be holding a press event on August 29th to spill all the details.

Just last month, Samsung’s President of Mobile Shin Jong-Kyun predicted that the US S II would launch sometime in August. As long as they’ve got things prepped to hit the shelves somewhat shortly after the press conference, it looks like he won’t be too far off.

If the rumor mill’s whispers from waaaaay back in May are still holding true, the S II will likely launch as the Galaxy S 2 Attain (on AT&T), S 2 Function (on Verizon), and S 2 Within (on Sprint).

Need a refresher on what’s inside? It may vary a bit from carrier to carrier, but here are The Galaxy S II Specs:

  • 1.2 Ghz Dual Core CPU
  • 1 GB of RAM
  • 16 GB of internal storage (with a microSD slot)
  • 4.27″ WVGA Super AMOLED Plus Display
  • 8 Megapixel rear camera (Capable of 1080p video at 30FPS)
  • 2 megapixel front camera
  • NFC Support
  • 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0+ HS, and can support certain USB devices (mice, external hard drives) through the USB-On-The-Go protocol
