Samsung Galaxy S2 Release Date: AT&T Announces October 2 Launch

The Samsung Galaxy S2 will be released by AT&T on October 2, according to an announcement made by the company earlier today.

AT&T was originally scheduled to release the smartphone on September 18, but delayed the launch which in turn left customers in the dark about when it would hit stores.

After customers expressed their discontent for the company, AT&T seemed to finally decide that it would fill them in on the plans for releasing the Galaxy S2.

Sprint is already selling the smartphone as the Epic 4G Touch.

The iPhone 5 is scheduled to be unveiled by Apple’s CEO Tim Cook on October 4.

The Galaxy S2’s release will happen just two days before the highly anticipated Apple device is revealed.

According to 9to5 Google, AT&T’s version of the device is the closest to the international version with the same 4.3 inch display-contrasted with the 4.5 variety that T-Mobile and Sprint are carrying.

AT&T’s Galaxy S2 will also have NFC (near field communications), according to the site.

Sprint's version does not include this feature.

Samsung’s Galaxy S2 has already been released overseas and has received rave reviews with some customers ditching their iPhone 4 for the Android powered device.

Samsung hopes to crush the iPhone with the Galaxy S2 stating that the company wants the device to become the flagship smartphone for Android OS deeming it “the iPhone killer.”

Although the iPhone is rumored to be unveiled on October 5, no information has been officially confirmed by Apple regarding the device.

Both the iPhone 5 and the Galaxy S2 are supposed to be available on AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint.

Verizon chose to stick with the Droid Bionic as its flagship Android device, but will carry the iPhone 5

AT&T customers can now rest easy knowing they will finally get their hands on the Galaxy S2 sometime soon.
