Galaxy S II For T-Mobile Is Samsung Hercules
Back in May it first came to light that a smartphone known as the Samsung Hercules would be eventually making its way to T-Mobile, and there have been rumours that the Samsung Hercules would be the T-Mobile variant of the Samsung Galaxy S II, well now it has all but been confirmed that this will indeed be the case.
The guys over at Tmonews have managed to get hold of a couple of pictures of the Samsung Hercules, one of the front and one of the back, and its that back image that confirms that the Samsung Hercules is indeed a Galaxy S II handset because it is printed on the device.
Spec wise according to our previous article the Samsung Hercules will sport a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus touch screen, an 8 megapixel camera with 1080p video capture, 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon APQ8060 processor, 1GB RAM and 16GB flash storage, MHL support, NFC, Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS and will be T-Mobile’s first HSPA+ 40Mbps smartphone.
Along with their Samsung Hercules pictures the guys have also posted an image of the Android handset from Pocket Now that shows off the front of the smartphone rather nicely and does match up with their own image of the front.
When it comes to just when Magenta is likely to see the Samsung Hercules playing nice on their network, back in May when the T-Mobile roadmap was leaked it tagged the Samsung Hercules release date as being scheduled for the 26th of September, so although not confirmed we can still presume the device is on target for release on this date.
According to one of the guy’s ninjas, the word is the Samsung Hercules is a very fast handset, along with the calendar, email and messaging apps being quite amazing, and that Netflix comes preinstalled and works well.
As for pricing of the Samsung Hercules, well naturally nothing concrete is available at this point in time, but the Pocket Now guys reckon the Android handset, which should also be making its way to Canada’s Telus at some point, should command a price tag range above the $300 mark before any discounts, but will have to wait and see on that.
The Samsung Galaxy S II seems to be shifting rather well for Sammy as expected considering how well the original Samsung Galaxy S device has done, so are you hoping to snap up the Samsung Hercules once T-Mobile pushes it out to the public?
