Default T-Mobile to Release Samsung Hercules as Galaxy S II Next Month

"As the rumored U.S. launch in September approaches, we keep seeing more and more rumors about the U.S. versions of Samsung’s best selling phone. We have previously reported on a supposed version from AT&T. We also discussed that one analyst believes Verizon will get the super phone first. Now, it looks like T-Mobile’s version of the Galaxy S II has posed for some photos."

If you've been waiting for the Galaxy S II it looks like next month you may be able to get it from T-Mobile.  It's interesting that there may be differences in the CPU/GPU and display type depending on the country.  It looks like the US may be getting the Tegra 2 version with a Super Clear LCD.  Some countries will get a Samsung CPU/GPU with a Super AMOLED Plus display.  The Tegra 2 version could have the Super AMOLED Plus display as well.  Check out the Wikipedia article for more info.  Either way it sounds like a great 1.2GHz dual-core CPU/GPU, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a MicroSDHC card slot and an 8MP rear camera that can record up to 1080p video.  It's also apparently the thinnest start phone other than some NEC model only available in Japan.  Would the fact that it only has a 480x800 display be a deal breaker for you?  Would Samsung's past track record of slow OS update releases scare you away?  Let us know your thoughts!
