During the Nexus S launch event this morning I had a quick conversation with Samsung VP Paul Brennan who stated the incredibly thin Android-powered Samsung Galaxy S II will be released in Canada. They are still working our the carrier details but he’s optimistic that it’ll launch either really late Q2, but more likely early Q3 time period (definitely in time for the back-to-school time).
The specs: Runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, has a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 8.49mm thin and only 116 grams, NFC capabilities, 8 megapixel camera with LED flash, 1080p HD video recording, 2 megapixel front facing camera, TouchWiz 4.0 UI, new “Live Panel”, WiFi and Reader Hub and reaches peak download speeds of 21Mbps.
No word on price points but Brennan also stated that Canada might beat the United States in releasing this device.
