Galaxy S II on Verizon Dubbed Fascinate II?

Verizon’s support account is on a roll today.  First we had confirmation (that has sort of been retracted) that the Galaxy S II will be a 4G LTE device and may now have the name for it as well.  How does Fascinate II, sound?  Rumors of it being called the Function have been floating around for a couple of months thanks to some random accessory site, but Fascinate II just makes so much more sense.  The DROID brand all follows some sort of numerical naming convention, so why not the Galaxy S line?

And I’m pointing this out for the simple fact that the initial question was, “When is the Galaxy SII coming out?” with no mention of Fascinate.  The VZW support rep is the one that included the name.


Cheers Dave!

    I know this is an older thread, but I have some solid info on the SGII. It will be LTE. It WILL have a slide-out qwerty, and the screen is 4″. I was messing with one this weekend. I tried poking around in the menus to find out the specs on the cpu, but found nothing. There was no “Hardware Info” under the”about phone” menu.I did notice it is running Android 2.3.3. The phone feels nice in the hand. I held the SGII up to my Incredible 2 and found it is about the same hight and width. It’s maybe 15%-20% thicker due to the qwerty. It doesn’t look like other SG devices. The phone is more cuved on the top and bottom than other SGs (lools more like an LG device honestyl) and no more home button. I’ve been trying to get pics, but I can’t seem to get alone with it long enough to sneek some shots. All of this I will stake my DL reputation on.

    How long did it take for Samsung to release froyo for the first Fascinate? If it took that long for Samsung to release froyo, just imagine how long it would take for Samsung to release Ice Cream Sandwich?

  • I’m writing to let you know what a terrific experience my wife’s princess went through going through your site. She learned numerous pieces, which included what it’s like to have an amazing helping style to let folks without difficulty master chosen tortuous things. You truly did more than visitors’ desires. Thanks for displaying the valuable, dependable, explanatory and as well as easy thoughts on that topic to Emily.

    Well whatever mobile phone hardware shows up in the VZW inventory this fall, had better be ready to deal with whatever the fruit munchers in Cupertino, have dreamt up.  SGS2, Bionic, Optimus etc.

    If it has a physical keyboard it would be a no buy for me. Swype is all you need.

    Fascinate 2 by Verizon Wireless: Get ahold of the rip racing phone from Verizon today. It comes preloaded with Bing, has a stunning 512mbs of ram, a slide out keyboard that makes it a super sleek 1″ thick. Do forget that your 3g radio and GPS will constantly be cutting out, all at no extra cost! Also we know how getting updates can be confusing to people, so we won’t be releasing Gingerbread til next year on this phone. Get ahold of the Fascinate 2 today! ***buyers remorse included at no extra charge.
