Default Infuse 4G = US Flavor of Galaxy S II?

I'm just curious if anyone has anything definite on this...

The original Galaxy S came to the U.S. in different flavors: The Captivate, Vibrant, Fascinate, and Epic 4G.

Is the Galaxy S 2 coming to the U.S. in the same way? (In other words, are they going to release a specific version for each carrier, each with features taken away from the original Galaxy S 2)?

Is that what the Infuse 4G is? The AT&T version of the Galaxy S 2?

(It's probably not, seeing as how the specs are so different... 4.5" vs. 4.3", 1x1.2 GHz vs. 2x1 GHz, etc. I'm just curious if anyone has heard anything definite about this.)

I think they're different due to: different screen sizes, and single vs dual core processors. I'm confused about this too. I know the Infuse is coming out for AT&T with a Q2 release but I haven't heard anything for the S2...

The Infuse is not the same as the Galaxy S II. The Infuse was announced at CES and comes with a 4.5" screen, bigger than the SGS2, only single core instead of dual-core, and does not have NFC or the fancy Exynos chip. It even looks different from the pictures, the sides and back. The Galaxy S (Vibrant/Captivate) 4G is also just a regular Galaxy S, with 4G. The Galaxy SL is a cheaper version of the Galaxy S with a downgraded LCD screen. There is also a rather ugly looking Galaxy 4G phone coming to Verizon that is different from the rest but I don't remember it having any outstanding features.

There's already a thread about it being on T-mobile. It was a mistake on their twitter account. Most likely it will be on all four major carriers in some form however. Since T-mobile doesn't have anything besides the relatively old Vibrant and G2, they are the most likely to get it first.

They don't. I was just listing examples of carrier-specific names for the Galaxy S. There is, however, a 4g *Fascinate in Canada.

Was mostly thinking of dual-core stuff. But you are right, the leaked Optimus 2x too.
