After what feels like a lifetime of waiting in anticipation, the USis finally about to receive its own version of the Samsung Galaxy S2. A number of reports and leaks from within the industry have suggested that the very first variant of the S2 to arrive on US shores will be the Sprint ‘Epic Touch 4G’ which will make its first appearance on September 9th.
Firstly, the date of September 9th has been directly cited by high level sources who have proved to be right on the money in the past. Needless to say, this is far from official substantiation but has long proved the next best thing.
Secondly, Samsung themselves released a teaser video this week and although it passed by most of us for at least a day or two, those with a quite staggeringly clear eye for detail managed to catch sight of a couple of frames at the end of the video which announce the US release of the S2.
Finally, there is also the fact that another separate source from directly within sprint has mentioned September 9th independently, stating that they would indeed be the first of the big four US carriers to be launching the S2 – which backs up suspicions that have been doing the rounds for a while now.
Either way, official confirmations, spec details and so on should all form part of the proceeding of the launch event scheduled to take place next week inNew York City, so it appears crunch time, not to mention the time to reaffirm the credibility of our sources, is well and truly upon us.
