Globe gets exclusivity on the Samsung Galaxy S2
Yesterday during the Globe HSPA+ demo, they announced that they will have exclusive rights to launch and distribute the Samsung Galaxy S2 which is an HSPA+ capable phone. Initially at least. It would be just like with the Samsung Galaxy S where you can only get the phone from Globe in the first month of its availability.
It is important to note that while the Samsung Galaxy S2 is an HSPA+ capable device, it is not really a full 4G phone as it can’t support LTE networks. Well on its current state that is but Samsung wants to play around with specifications depending on the region or the request of the carrier. We’ll just have to ask Samsung about it when it is launched probably next month ok?
We can’t get an exact date of availability and pricing yet for the Samsung Galaxy S2 sorry. Globe also mentioned that they will be introducing other HSPA+ capable phones in different price points after the Galaxy S2.
