SaskTel first North American carrier to confirm Galaxy S II

updated 09:30 pm EDT, Thu June 16, 2011

Handset to be available "in the next month"

Saskatchewan-based cellular carrier SaskTel is the first North American carrier to confirm plans to launch Samsung's Galaxy S II smartphone. The timing of the announcement, which promises a ship within the next month, suggests the device may be on track for a wider launch through several North American carriers sometime in July.

The Android-based device recently broke an internal record for the company, selling over one million units in Korea within 30 days. US carriers are expected to get the handset in slightly different variations, with recent reports pointing to the label Attain for AT&T's model.

The second-generation Galaxy S offers a 4.3-inch screen that utilizes Samsung's improved Super AMOLED Plus technology, while the profile has been reduced to just 8.9mm. Other features will include a revamped TouchWiz interface and support for 21Mbps 3G networks.

Samsung has yet to announce specific launch plans for North America.
