Sprint’s version of the Samsung Galaxy S II was the first to hit the streets, but AT&T isn’t far behind with their own model. While it’s not available just yet, AT&T has announced today that their version will launch on October 2, with a $200 price tag on contract.

Like the Sprint model, AT&T’s Galaxy S II runs on Samsung’s own 1.2 GHz dual-core Exynos processor, but sports a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display instead of the 4.52-inch display found on both the Sprint and T-Mobile variants.

While the slightly smaller screen may give some customers a mild case of display envy, there’s an upside: all three versions at the same 800×480 screen resolution, meaning AT&T’s version gets a higher pixel density.

A remarkably solid 8-megapixel rear camera, 16 GB of internal flash storage, and a revamped version of Samsung’s TouchWiz UI round out the package. Customers will have to settle for AT&T’s kinda-sorta-4G though, as Samsung hasn’t deigned to give this beauty an LTE radio. With this and the new iPhone looking at a launch window next month, it looks like Halloween won’t be the only reason this October will be worth looking forward to.
