Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD For AT&T Passes Through The FCC – Release Imminent?

We haven’t seen or heard very much from the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD aside from its official announcement a few weeks ago. That announcement failed to mention a release date which has left many wondering exactly when the device would drop. Well, the device has finally passed through the FCC today showing off it’s bands and even NFC capabilities. Hopefully, this means a release is just around the corner and for Samsung’s sake, let’s hope it’s before the HTC One X drops.

    This phone would be awesome if it dropped with ICS…I’d definitely entertain grabbing one if that was the case. With the HTC one X not expected until late Spring/early Summer, this would be a great release right now for Ma Bell.

    Oh many Samsung devices does At&T need? They just got the Galaxy Note and  they have the Skyrocket and the  Samsung Galaxy II…

Stop trying to milk the consumers pockets and release the S3 already, jeez starting to look like what moto did with the bionic, then razor, then razor maxx all withing a Span of a couple of months. Wtf

    AT&T will have a regular GSII, a GSII Skyrocket and now a GSII Skyrocket HD… does that make any sense? Lol. Why didn’t they just release one device, the Skyrocket HD, in the first place? Whatever. I’m happy with my GSII. Waiting for the GSIII Skyrocket HD to come out tho ;)

      Lets do that over. Samsung Infuse 4G (Still waiting on GB Update) Samsung Galaxy S2 (Still waiting on ICS Update) Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket (Still waiting on ICS Update) Samsung Galaxy Note (Still waiting on ICS Update) and now an upcoming Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket HD (? on ICS or ? on Jelly Bean).  They refuse to get an Galaxy Nexus.

    Well DAMN how many SII Galaxies are coming out??  The shit just doesn’t make sense and here we are complaining about a new iPhone droppin every year.  No wonder updates are so slow.  They need to concentrate on updating everything to ICS.  These manufacturers like to make it hard for us to defend them.

    Sadly because it has expandable storage and a removable battery this is my top choice to upgrade from the Inspire 4g

    • JSYOUNG571

      The Infuse 4g that we have all been waiting almost a year to get a 2 year old OS (Gingerbread) on. I don’t trust AT&T as far as I can throw them at this point with Samsung and updates.

      • BigCiX

        yup…..majority of the time its att the fault the late update.

    ive been pining for this phone for a couple months now, but now im seriously considering holding out for the galaxy s3.  :-(  ill feel a little burned if i get this and then a  month or two later the s3 is out for att.  if the s3 is just an international release and the us version doesnt come for 6-9 months later id feel a little better about it at least.
