Watch the Samsung Galaxy S II Event Live (Updated)

There won’t be any Verizon goodness to view at this Samsung Galaxy S II U.S. launch event, but we can still all join in the party and cheer on Android in general.  And who knows, we could see something bigger on Big Red in just a few weeks if any of the rumors of the past few days are to be believed.

*Live stream is over.

Update:  They will start in 5 minutes. Our boy Dan is on the scene.

Update 2:  A press release introducing all three devices can be found here.

Update 3:  Don’t forget to check out our review of the unlocked Galaxy S II here.

Update 4:  Dan is on his way to get some hands on time.  Continued coverage over at Android Life.

    I really think Verizon should reconsider their decision and bring the best quality phones to their network so Verizon loyalists don’t look the other way.  I know few users who were just waiting for this phone to switch their phones from Sprint to Verizon but now they are considering staying and just upgrading. 

  • I want to express appreciation to this writer just for bailing me out of this trouble. Just after scouting through the world wide web and seeing basics which are not powerful, I thought my entire life was gone. Existing devoid of the answers to the difficulties you have sorted out all through your good posting is a critical case, as well as those which may have adversely damaged my entire career if I hadn’t encountered your web site. Your own skills and kindness in taking care of the whole thing was invaluable. I’m not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t come upon such a stuff like this. I can also at this moment look forward to my future. Thanks a lot very much for this high quality and amazing guide. I won’t be reluctant to refer the blog to anybody who needs to have assistance on this problem.

  • My wife and i felt thankful Jordan could finish off his research because of the ideas he obtained while using the weblog. It’s not at all simplistic to just always be freely giving techniques which usually other folks could have been trying to sell. And now we acknowledge we now have the blog owner to be grateful to for this. The entire explanations you’ve made, the straightforward website navigation, the friendships your site help promote – it’s many superb, and it’s really helping our son in addition to the family understand that subject matter is thrilling, and that is seriously indispensable.

    DO THEY HAVE N.F.C.????????

  • Awesome, but an.droid-life.com ? …what’s the difference? Some duplicates, but some unique posts?

    • Rizzidy

      Don’t worry, it’ll be dead again in a week.

    • It used to be they only posted “Droid” related news on droidlife.com and everything else that’s Android related on an.droidlife.com.

      Now I’m not sure what they’re doing.

    Hey Wikipedia is saying that the LTE version is a 1.5ghz snapdragon
    processor and not exynos. Is there a reason why the exynos can not be
    clocked up to 1.5?

    Y U NO GO VERIZON!?? soo dumb if it is because of nexus prime being made by samsung too. especially when a LTE model is going to rogers network in canada.

  • EC8CH

    Exynos For Everybody!

    … well expect everyone on Verizon

  • that sucked

  • Anonymous

    No news of the SG LTE so we will have to wait on that one (the Prime). 

    • Yeah, he said all will be 4G.

      • EC8CH

        4G… but not LTE

        • If it’s verizon, it’s LTE.

          • EC8CH

            There was nothing in the announcement regarding any phones on Verizon.

          • Poopsalot

            Hence the word IF.

    • That is at the September 1st event in Europe  I wonder if they excluded Verizon (besides the Prime being the reason) because of the September 1st event showing off the first LTE Galaxy SII phones.  But I guess we’ll see.

  • This would have been a good article to put on an.droid-life !!!

    Boring. Give me the Bionic, Droid HD or Prime over these phones any day; the GSII is old news.

    • Anonymous

      The Bionic is old news too. Maybe one day Motorola will actually release the thing, but we’ve been hearing about if for 6 months.

      • girls that’s enough fighting

    Did that retard just say “earthquakes, hurricanes, who says samsung cant build up a product launch”?

    Two things… You’re laughing at a good portion of the eastern seaboard being under water and dealing with losing a great deal of personal possessions?

    Secondly, with the death toll still rising, is Samsung taking the blame for innocent peoples death since theyre alluding to the fact they are responsible for the hurricane?

    You suck samsung marketing guy… have some compassion.

    • OreoMan

      Maybe they can hire Michele Bachmann as their PR person?  She does a great job at using tragedy and birth/death mixups to get the crowds going!

  • Late, like their updates.

    HA! UStream ad that played was a VZW spot with the tag line at the end:

    “The Network with the best Technology Rules”

      Verizon will get a different Samsung Superphone cause they’re just that special.

    • Anonymous

      none of the announced models for those carriers are coming with lte.

  • OMG galaxy s ii lte is coming to sprint, att, and t-mobile, yet will not show for VZW? unbelievable…

  • Hmm

    There should be some Q&As to VZW about their new Samsung device.

  • TheAndroid1

    You lost me at “there won’t be any Verizon goodness”

    • EC8CH

      Only way to find me again is with a Nexus Prime on Verizon’s LTE network.
