It’s been in testing for the last year, but Samsung’s Galaxy S II is finally set to launch with AT&T just two days into October. The Android-based smartphone, which boasts some powerful hardware specifications, will cost $199 on contract. The ultra-slim phone, powered by a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, has 1 GB of memory, an AMOLED display, and an 8-megapixel camera with full 1080p high-definition video recording.
The Galaxy S II’s biggest competitor will be Apple’s rumored iPhone 5. In fact, Samsung is rolling out the Galaxy S II just two days before Apple’s chief executive Tim Cook is expected to show off the latest iPhone iteration to the world. Samsung has been thinking about suing Apple over the iPhone 5 when it is released, in an attempt to have the device banned from sale across the European Union.
