Samsung Galaxy S II on Verizon? No that’s not gonna happen!

Samsung Galaxy S II on Verizon is not gonna be available. Its true. Galaxy S II is the biggest Android phone to drop this year and many Android-faithful users in the US have been eagerly awaiting its release.

The first Galaxy S phone was a huge success and was one of the only phones to launch on all 4 major carriers. AT&T got the Captivate, T-Mobile the Vibrant, Sprint the Epic 4G and Verizon the Fascinate. Each of these devices had slightly tweaked designs but otherwise had the same Galaxy S hardware. Because of this deal, many assumed the Galaxy S II would also come stateside on all four major networks.



Verizon broke the news on August 24th, 2011 that it had no plans to release the Samsung Galaxy S II on Verizon.

Samsung Galaxy S II Specs

The main reason there is so much hype surrounding this phone’s release is its top-notch hardware. As a result many people were expecting Samsung Galaxy S II on Verizon because of its latest features. The phone features a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display and provides the best colors of any device on the market.

The phone also features a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor and 1 GB of RAM, making it right in line with any other super phone available. The device is running the latest version of Android, 2.3 Gingerbread and is extremely snappy. On top of the performance, the phone also features dual cameras.

The VGA front-facing camera is perfect for video chat and the 8-megapixel on the back takes amazing stills and video at 1080P. Along with the top-notch specs comes some of the best battery life of any super phone to date. Every review states it’ll easily get you through the day or even a weekend on a single charge. Too bad Samsung Galaxy S II on Verizon is not gonna make through!

Verizon’s Response

When pressed for a statement, Verizon told its customers that a varied catalog of devices is already available. In the statement, they recommended users check out the Droid Charge as a replacement for Samsung Galaxy S II on Verizon.While the Droid Charge has the same screen as the Galaxy S II, under the hood, the phone doesn’t even have half its horsepower. Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy S II devices for the other 3 major carriers by the end of September.

    It is disappointing for verizon customers that the Samsung Galaxy S II won’t be available, but I don’t think anyone will be too upset. Technology is moving so fast that there will be a newer and better phone coming along in no time. Besides, there are so many other similar phones that could serve as good substitutes for this one.
