Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket hands-on

We took a hands-on look at the HTC Vivid earlier this afternoon, and now we’re focusing on the second of AT&T’s first two LTE phones: the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket. We’re no strangers to the Galaxy S II — we’ve reviewed several versions of the phone here on BGR — and this version of the smartphone offers a few spec bumps over AT&T’s standard Galaxy S II. We’re looking at a slightly larger 4.5-inch display, a faster 1.5GHz dual-core processor, the same 8-megapixel camera and nearly the same case as the original S II. Sadly, we weren’t able to test AT&T’s 4G LTE network as we’re not in a launch market. AT&T will launch the Galaxy S II Skyrocket on November 6th for $249.99 on contract. In the meantime, check out our hands-on images in the gallery below.
