Following its official launch across online outlets last week, the white version of the Samsung Galaxy S2 has since appeared in a video on YouTube. The white S2 comes packed with the very same kit as the standard global S2, which includes a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 4.3 inch Super AMOLED touchscreen and 1GB of dedicated RAM.
Needless to say, the white S2 does not exactly come cheaply as it stands, which in many outlets is priced around the $800 – which is over $100 more than the standard black version.
With regard to the US market, three separate iterations of the S2 are to be launched this fall across the Sprint, T-Mobile and AT&T networks – all of which will be considerably less expensive than the new white offering. Sprint look set to be the first to get their hands on their own S2, which will ship under the catchy title of the Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch next month. The screen size will be bumped up to 5.52 inches and the price held at a steady $199.99 along with a 2-year contract.
So, the question now is that of whether or not US customers will be willing to pay through the nose for the prestige of the white model? Or whether the white version will in fact officially launch in the US at all? Time will indeed tell, but given the hype surrounding the white iPhone 4 which launched earlier this year, it seems unlikely the white S2 will be anything other than huge.
