Verizon Will Get the Samsung Galaxy S II Before All Other U.S. Carriers?

Industry analyst Paul Mueller is making waves this morning with his prediction that Verizon will be the first carrier in the U.S. to receive the Samsung Galaxy S II.  Either Mueller or the source site has referred to it as the Samsung Function, a name that popped up on an accessory site long ago and is one that we have never fully bought into, and says it could be here by August 12.

“I’m not sure about the exact date, but I’ve been told that August 12 is a possibility. It will arrive first on Verizon and then the rest of the carriers within a month. Samsung will market this directly against the iPhone 5,” says Mr. Mueller.

So, what do we think?  Well, we were told by Sammie president JK Shin that they had plans to ship the device to the U.S. in August and we also just saw what we believe is the AT&T version of the Galaxy S2, so Mueller has at least that going for him.  We’re not a fan of the August 12 date since that’s a Friday, but the 11th or 12th is probably what he meant – or at least in that week.  To put that into perspective, we’re just two weeks away from that time frame.

We still have no idea if Verizon will release it as a 4G LTE device, but it just seems so unlikely with the DROID Bionic still not in stores.  The Bionic was supposed to be the device of the year for Verizon and will surely launch with a massive marketing campaign.  Would they jeopardize all of that money and effort just to release a 4G version of the Galaxy S II only weeks before?  Would be pretty surprising.

Be sure to read our full review of the Samsung Galaxy S II.

  • Several sites are now reporting new info that the leaked AT&T Samsung Slider is NOT their GS2.  Looks like it is going to be all touchscreen.

  • I really wish I hadn’t purchased my Thunderbolt. The Galaxy S II looks awesome.

    Why Samsung haven’t answer if is 4g or not on verizon? If they answer that simple question they can steal all of moto Bionic buyer.

    Really hope that this phone isn’t as messed up as the Fascinate or the Continuum. There is nothing that Verizon or Samsung has to change on this phone besides possibly giving it the standard 4 Android buttons. Just put a CDMA radio in it (props  if they can get an LTE radio that doesn’t kill battery) and put it on Verizon.  Don’t rape it with bloatware or remove Google, or anything else.  This phone is already the pinnacle of Android devices and needs no tinkering.

    Bionic (a dual core 4G LTE phone) vs. SG II (that has everything else). 

  • then it wouldn’t be an sgsII and how do you go from “may” to “I’m sure”?

Right after surfing throughout the search engines and obtaining notions that were not powerful, I believed my entire life was gone. Living without the presence of strategies to the problems you have fixed all through your short post is a serious case, and the ones that might have negatively damaged my career if I had not discovered your web blog. Your main capability and kindness in maneuvering every part was tremendous. I’m not sure what I would have done if I had not discovered such a subject like this.

    This phone will be the best. ever. can’t wait. And with Verizon, we don’t have to worry about that stupid slide out keyboard (hopefully)

    Why can’t we just have the phone in the picture with 4g? Is it that bad verizon? I don’t want a keyboard, or more bloatware, or a different design. It works.

    Before I scrolled down a little farther I seriously thought DroidLife was doing an article about the iPhone 5… the top does look an awful lot like an iPhone.

  • Buckgrad

    If it has the slide out keyboard like the AT& T version is supposed to have, then they have lost this sale.

  • Anonymous

    I don’t like the iphone look of it.  Or does the iphone look too much like the Samsung…sorry I can’t remember who’s doing the infringement.

  • How is the Function name something your not sure of? What about the copyright that Samsung filed a few months ago for it?  along with the Samsung Galaxy SII Attain, Within and Hercules.  Hopefully Verizon doesn’t have there version changed like AT&T and Sprint have so far. The back of the AT&T one is ugly and the back of the Sprint “Within” is umm, ovalish?  I just hope that if Verizon gets an exclusive launch window that they don’t get a design that isn’t compatible with any of the accessories for this great device.  The Bionic on the other hand has some great ones too.  The Function might launch before the Bionic even though we keep getting teased August 4 as the release date.  Don’t go by the teasers.  The ThunderBolt has taught us a great lesson on delays and patience. and is quite possible that Bionic may not come until September after all with the SII being in August, that would be a logical choice.  Especially if it has LTE, which would be dumb if it doesn’t. Most newer high end devices are LTE on Verizon, minus the Droid’s.  The Charge is the only Droid so far to be LTE, but Bionic is coming and if we look at this release date window pattern.

    March – ThunderBolt
    Late April – Droid Charge
    May – LG Revolution
    June – Droid X2 (3G only)
    July – Droid 3 (3G only)
    August – Samsung Galaxy S II “Function” ?
    September – Droid Bionic
    October – another LTE device?
    November – another 3G only device? or a mix of multiple devices including those with LTE and 3G only for BF
    December – another 3G only device?
    January – another LTE device?  CES news month

    see where i’m going with this?

    Thats what i see or think at this point.

    I still might get this over the bionic even without the 4G, maybe. Just tired on waiting on Motorola to get their heads out of their ass

  • BTGGTR1

    I sure hell hope this proves to be true…I want a phone that will compete with the iphone5, and the Galaxy S II is the only one that will probably be able to right now. This phone with 4G would be insane. The 3G veriaon was fast as hell in videos I’ve seen!!

  • They’ll probably make it 1gb ram.  The gpu wastes the one in SGS2.  Mali garbage.

    btw, I hate the Iphone but SGS2 won’t blow away nothing.

  • I’m pretty sure the GS2 would blow the bionic out of the water, anyhow. 

    • thats what the benchmarks are pointing at so far, but we don’t know if the US variants will have the Exynos processor or the Tegra 2 like the FCC documents for the At&t variant showed, If it has a Tegra 2, the Bionic will beat it by a long shot. but if it has the Exynos, yeah, thats the phone after my Dream Phone Verizon.  The ThunderBolt WAS my dream phone, now I want the one after the dream phone lol

    Hopefully the radio and gps don’t suck in this like it did in the GalaxyS1 phones. The Fascinate will cut your 3g data speed in half compared to a 3g phone where the radio works.

    • Matthewmcmillen

      root and let the devs that are way smarter than me give us a good radio to use… not that the manufacturer doesn’t need to ship a properly functioning device, but it’s a band aid a lot of us use anyway.

      • Stelv81

        I bought the Fascinate knowing it had problems and that I could probably fix them with root. Boy was I wrong. We were all flashing a different radio every week. GPS never locks. Rooting helped but not enough to make it a good device. I just think Samsung put hardware related to radios and gps’s in their devices.

        • Stelv81

          *I just think Samsung put BAD hardware related to radios and gps’s in their devices.

    • Craigg

      I have noticed that Samsung radios are not as sensitive as Motorola. My Droid Charge side by side with a Motorola Droid 2 Global will download at about 1/3 the rate compared to Motorola over 3G. I will try the Samsung if it is a Global phone but won’t keep it if it turns out to be as slow as the Charge.

      • Stelv81

        Global may boost its data speeds a little but Samsung has had bad radios in there devices for a while now. Hopefully they will redeem themselves with the S2. I myself gave up on Samsung a while ago.

    I have heard this before…that the SG2 will release on Verizon first.  It would be a smart move for Verizon (unless it’s a slider and I would hope they would have more sense than ATT.
     

  • ohpleaseohpleaseohplease

  • DannyE30

    Man, this sucks. I was waiting for the Bionic, but now I’m leaning towards the SGII. Form factor does account for most of my decision.

    My guess is that the SGII will NOT be LTE, unless it comes out in “slider” form. Seems to me that the reason why ATT was able to implement the 4G radio, was because of the slider. They added the slider so they could also add in the 4G radio, I’m guessing there are other reasons, but my theory being one of them.

    So what would you rather have, if no other option;

    SGII 3G w/same original form factor

    Or

    SGII 4G/LTE ATT form factor

    ?????

    • Anonymous

      SGII 3G w/ same form factor. I’m sure it will be at least 2 years before I get to see 4G in my area. Even if 4G is a year off, I can just sell my SG2 for the Nexus Prime or whatever awesome phone is out by then. SG2 all the way!

      The only thing I’m worried about is the GPU. I’m a heavy phone gamer so I want the best of the best. The SGS2’s GPU, the MALI-400 is supposedly a tad slower than the Tegra 2. Although the benchmarks for the SGS2 are pretty impressive. I’m sure it won’t make a huge difference either way.

      • Tickle

        Are you serious? There’s no way the Mali-400 on the GSII is actually slower than the tegra, if anything it’s much, much faster. Look at any benchmark or any emulators on a Tegra 2 device, and then compare it to the GSII. The GPU is one of the main reassons why the GSII is so fast. The GSII supposedly has 5x the GPU power from the original Galaxy S. The Tegra 2 GPU isn’t that much faster than the PowerVR SGX540 from last year’s hummibird.

    I went to Verizon yesterday and overheard a Verizon Rep saying that they don’t carry the fascinate anymore because the “fascinate 2” is coming out. Could this be the galaxy 2?

  • Jason Purp

    By the time this phone comes to Verizon, it will be old news and some newer phone will be all the talk. Especially if you consider how much shit Verizon will slap onto this thing. They might even put TouchWiz 3 back on, since no other Samsung phones at Verizon seem to have 4.

  • It may have 3G only but…the Nexus Prime IS coming to Verizon and also made by Samsung. Also the Charge came out just a few months ago. Why would they cannibalize sales of it by releasing a 4G GS2 so soon?

    • Anonymous

      Probably because the Charge isn’t selling nearly as well as some people think. This Galaxy S II is being heralded as the best phone ever to hit the market overseas. The phone enthusiasts will help sell this phone by word of mouth. I know I’ll be picking this thing up, 4G or not, as my OG is hanging on by a thread…

  • Eric V

    If it is 4G My Thunderbolt will be gone when this phone comes out.

  • I have the OG Droid, but I’m switching to Sprint when (if) they get the Galaxy S2 (great discount on service plan). I hope I don’t have to wait too long.

    Don’t forget the general population of potential smartphone buyers have no idea the Bionic was delayed or even exists, so they are not frustrated with Moto (assuming they didn’t buy a Xoom).  I think people underestimate marketing, have you not met someone who’s bought an iPhone or Android phone and has no idea what it can do but knew they had to have one?  If Vzw/Moto push this out with enough hype it’ll outsell all the existing 4G phones, including their head start, in just a couple months I would imagine.
    If the the SG2 comes without a keyboard and LTE, then the Bionic might be f^cked, otherwise Moto is going to be doing quite well assuming they can get it out the door before the iPhone 5.

    thank god it isn’t going to have a physical keyboard.  the knuckle draggers who still use one can buy the D3. give us the best phone on the planet!

  • I’m not sure why everyone is hot for the Bionic – it’s got a qHD pentile screen, which based on multiple reviews is god-awful, and “may be the devil” according to one review.  And by the time the Bionic launches (Sept?) the next gen. devices and Ice Cream Sandwich will be right around the corner (ideally).

    If the SGS2 is LTE and a non-slider my OG is going to be retired, sadly.  If it’s a slider I’ll wait.  

  • Screw the Bionic…I’m tired of waiting.
    On a related note…Screw Motorola, I’m tired of waiting for my XOOM’s 4G upgrade. 

    • I’m thinking about going to Verizon and bitching for them to switch mine out with a Galaxy Tab 10.1.

      Ya know, I’m not a Xoom owner, but I’m pretty surprised there’s not a civil suit filed against moto for selling a product with a promise to upgrade it and not following through in a timely fashion.

  • mtbhk44

    As long as it doesn’t have that stupid slider AT&T is getting, this phone is mine.  LTE or not.  I’m so far out on Long Island (NY) that I won’t have LTE access the great majority of the time anyway.  And Motorola screwed the pooch on the Bionic – I could almost care less about that phone at this point.  Good job Moto

    Probably wishful thinking, but I’m hoping they will launch a 4g sgs2 with no marketing push.  They didn’t have much marketing for the Fascinate (if any).  This would let them still release the Bionic with a huge marketing campaign.

    If the next IPhone is 4s and not 5, there is gonna be no competition. 4s being the same exact phone as the 4 with lil bit better internals. And I don’t see Jobs stepping up screen size or anything drastic. Therefore the gS 2 will blow the IPhone out.

      Are you going to whine as much about Samsung as you are now about Moto if the GS2 ends up not having LTE?  Fact of the matter is that no one has released a dual core phone with LTE yet and the Bionic may still be the first and even only for awhile.

      • Anonymous

        Yes I will, because then I won’t want the SGS2. There will be no point in the SGS2 if it has no LTE. I just thought dual core LTE would come shortly after the Thunderbolt.

        To me, Moto was supposed to bring this in April with Tegra 2 before the SGS2 came out in the middle of the Summer. It would have been advantage Moto. Letting Samsung possibly beat them with an LTE dual core SGS2 is Moto dropping the ball. Samsung not having LTE will be Samsung dropping the ball, because they’ve had enough time.

          • Good luck using that keyboard to scroll down exactly as much as you want to when viewing a website, or seeing the entire website when you’re typing something in.. Keyboard makes things soo much easier.

          • I have no problems with what you mentioned.  I guess some people just don’t want to give up their physical keys…

      Same here. This is the phone I’ve been waiting for. The Super AMOLED Plus screen combined with the dual core 1.2 GHz Hummingbird (from the overseas phone) has me doing the happy dance! If Verizon doesn’ frack this up by putting 500MB of bloatware on this, and downgrading the internals, I’m in.

      I just paid $22.87 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $675 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, to.ly/aPXP

  • come to me SG2 come to me 

  • It is killing me that there isn’t more info on the Bionic. This is the first time I’ve considered the SGS2 (if it is LTE).

    • Geofff

      agreed. so disappointing the bionic is MIA. smh. 

  • Xhikerx

    If it had 4g Bionic would be a waste of time.

  • Mctypething

    Yeah, why put a 4G LTE radio on it? Why give your customers what they want, after all? If this phone was 4G LTE, the Bionic would be dead in the water. Too much frustration with Moto right now.

    • I’m Kick-Ass!

      Verizon’s hardware dept is far too confused and incapable to put LTE in this phone. They will be satisfied with 3 mediocre LTE phones and the Duke Nukem Forever of phones AKA the Bionic. Any company that force feeds us Bing is clearly not listening to consumers.

    • Christephor

      yea not a good coment mctypething most of the people who will be buying the gs2 wont get 4g for a while so why put it on it

    Screw the Bionic. It had its chance and Motorola screwed it up big time. I don’t want Verizon lessening this device for a device that’s basically an Atrix with 4G LTE.

      why are you mad at motto? what you want a crapy 4g phone like the thunderbolt witch still has issues or would you like  a phones without any issues if you havent noticed 4g phones havent been that good so far

      I hear that’s a splendid device. You’ll be ok.

    Ftw?

  • The real question is will the Verizon version be a slider like the AT&T one looks like it is gonna be?  God I hope not.

    • palomosan

      Don’t think so, Verizon needs this phone ASAP.

      • why would that make a difference?  It would actually make sense, as I don’t think they have an LTE slider yet.  This way it’s not as much competition for the Bionic.

        What Verizon and the politicians in DC need ASAP is some common sense.  Unfortunately, its apparently no where to be found.

    • rick

      probably (hopefully) not.  they’ve got the droid 3 for a slider. 

  • rick

    mine. 

    bye, bye bionic.
