Samsung Galaxy S II coming to US by AT&T, Verizon, Sprint

Samsung Galaxy S II US carriers leaked out

Plans to bring the Samsung Galaxy S II to the US have been independently supported by an accessory maker's posting of a silicone case. Lining up with USPTO trademarks, the mention from Wireless Xcessories Group has the dual-core Android 2.3 device coming to AT&T as the Attain, the Function at Verizon, and the Within at Sprint. T-Mobile is unusually exempt and may either go without or have a delayed version.

The appearance of one case for three carriers suggests the US version will, unlike the original Galaxy S, carry largely the same design from carrier to carrier. Samsung may either have gained more influence or else decided it was necessary to speed up the launch.

No mention has been made of when these phones would release, but Samsung is holding an event on May 24 that could mark the US debut. A Verizon roadmap has put a "Galaxy 2" on the launch schedule for May and could see the phone available very quickly. [via PocketNow]
