T-Mobile Launching Samsung Hercules in September?

The Samsung Hercules Android smartphone may be launching this September on T-Mobile USA with an impressive, yet conflicting, array of specs. The smartphone will either be a Samsung Galaxy S II variant or a variant of the single-core, but capable, Samsung Infuse 4G found on U.S. carrier AT&T. TmoNews is reporting a late September launch for the smartphone, perhaps on September 26th.

Like the Samsung Infuse 4G on AT&T, which only packs a single-core CPU, this device will feature a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display; the 4.5-inch display size will make it larger than the 4.3-inch afforded for the Galaxy S II.

The device is said to support T-Mobile’s 4G HSPA+ network with download speeds of up to 42 Mbps. If the merger for AT&T will be a go, the phone will also be compatible with AT&T’s 3G/4G network as well.

The device will pack in NFC support, 16 GB ROM, 1 GB RAM, a micro SDHC card slot, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video capture, front-facing camera, and micro USB support. Still up for debate is whether this phone will pack a single-core or dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU.

  1. What? I just bought my Samsung Galaxy S-II , now they said they will release Hercules.. Hey, Samsung … Sun of the BEACH! I’m DONE. I will give my S-II to my dog when iPhone 5 is released. 

    • How is that different from Apple? They release a new phone every year!  By the time you get your Iphone 5 they will announce the Iphone 6.

      •  not really apple will take a year to release a phone, which is good unlike the androids every damn 2 months or maybe even 1 you will see a new android again and again i think is a rip off why not support your own phone for a while don’t releasing a new phone every 2 months and completely ignore the one before.

        if you can get an iphone get an iphone at least they support their phones way longer than android, and it last longer battery life unlike any droid out there

    • SS 2s is the same as the Hercules, it is a variance of the SS 2s that all

      Well beside who would want to have 3/4 of the apple someone took a bite out of it.

    • It never ceases to amaze me how ignorant and selfish people like you can be Chan. You are actually complaining that progress is happening too fast? What a moron! There is only one reason that someone would get pissed that technology is steadily improving – they need to feel like they have the best hardware on the planet to compensate for their small, um, brain…yeah, that’s what I meant to say. It’s not like the phone you just bought is less impressive because something new comes out in 2 months versus 12. In fact, it would piss me off more to have to wait 2 years to see the improvements that have actually happened over 6 months. Being someone who loves tech, and then bitching because it is improving at a rapid rate, just makes you ignorant. Not to mention that you are complaining about a phone that you don’t even know the true specs of, and that is likely close to identical to the phone you already have.

      Ever heard the tale of the Fox and the Grapes? You should read it, it totally applies here! You should also look up penis envy. ^_^
