Seriously, has there been an Android phone that’s been rebranded so many times like the original Samsung Galaxy S? We’re not just talking about rebranding by major carriers, but also regional ones. The classic phone is about to receive some real competition, as word has it that the Galaxy S II has been eyed by so many wireless carriers in the US – eager to rename it to something predictably silly. Meh, what’s in a name anyway?
Thanks to Pocketnow, we can tell you what names they have lining up for the Samsung Galaxy S II. How do Attain, Within and Function sound to your ear? Like it or not, these are what AT&T, Sprint and Verizon will rename their version of Samsung Galaxy S II phones. So that’s AT&T Attain, Sprint Within and Verizon Function. How do we know it’s real? The names actually matched what Samsung have filed for registration a while back — so that will be the Galaxy Attain, Within and Function.
Notably missing from the list is T-Mobile, which could be planning to release a slight variant of the model later on. It’s also possible that the carrier feels like they have too much on their Android plates and will only concentrate on one flagship phone in the form of the HTC Sensation.
Despite the leak of their names – no launch date has been confirmed by Samsung and the respective wireless carrier.
