I got to tell you all the other night about the Sprint version of the Galaxy S2, the Samsung Epic Touch 4G, now comes word of the T-Mobile version, the Samsung Hercules. Word from TmoNews says the phone is expected to be available late summer/early fall, while the other carriers are also releasing their versions.
Specs for the camera include a 4.5-inch display and 8 megapixel camera, and sources say it comes preloaded with Netflix, TeleNav, custom messaging, email and calendar apps.
From androidguys: The original Galaxy S II offers users a Super AMOLED Plus display and dual-core 1.2GHz processor so we anticipate at least this much in the Hercules, if not more. In terms of operating system, we expect to Android 2.3 Gingerbread and the latest TouchWiz UI. Recent speculation also suggests that the processor speed might get a bump to dual-core 1.4GHz or 1.5GHz chipset.
One rumor that has circled the Samsung Hercules for a while now is that it will be T-Mobile’s first HSPA+ handset, capable of theoretical download speeds of 42Mbps. Other hardware specifications initially uncovered back in May include 16GB of ROM, 1GB of RAM, and MicroSD card slot.
