Release dates for the iPhone 5 are also up in the air. Rumors indicate that the Apple may release the smartphone to the public anywhere between early October and sometime in 2012.

In the meanwhile, the Sprint version of the Galaxy S2, the Epic 4G Touch, was released Friday, to rave reviews.

The Galaxy S2, Samsung’s best-selling phone, is already highly popular overseas. In the U.S., it is expected to be a fierce competitor with other popular, highly-anticipated smartphones such as the iPhone 5 and Droid Bionic.

The Galaxy S2 will also be released on the T-Mobile network. T-Mobile has not yet revealed the release date of the smartphone but it is expected sometime this fall.

The Galaxy S2 runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS and is accented by Samsung's TouchWiz UI touch screen capability.

Basic specs include a dual-core 1.2 GHz ARM Cortex-A9 Mali-400MP GPU Orion chipset on the Sprint and AT&T versions and a 1.5 GHz dual core Qualcomm APQ8060 processor on the T-Mobile versions.

More advanced specs include a new OS called Ice Cream Sandwich, which is scheduled to be released in October or November, as well as Flash capability, which has been missing from Apple products thus far.
