Verizon to release Samsung Galaxy S II ‘Function’ in July

Verizon Wireless confirmed on Wednesday that it will launch Samsung’s second-generation Galaxy S “superphone” next month. Speaking to Computerworld, the carrier confirmed that it would launch the Samsung Galaxy S II “Function” some time in July. Featuring a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and Android 2.3 Gingerbread, the Galaxy S II is at the forefront of a new generation of more powerful Android smartphones that will launch this year. BGR reviewed an unlocked global version of the Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone last month, and we said it was “the greatest Android smartphone available on the planet” at that time. Each of the four major carriers in the U.S. carried the original Samsung Galaxy S under varied names, and they were all very good sellers. As such, it is reasonable to believe each carrier could carry its successor.

UPDATE: The carrier said that this was a slip up, and that they were referring to the impending Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 launch on Verizon Wireless.
