Samsung Galaxy S II in white coming soon to T-Mobile

The Samsung Galaxy S II in white is on its way to T-Mobile USA -- same phone as before, same price, just a different color.

The Galaxy S II -- my current favorite all-around Android smart phone on the market -- launched on T-Mobile back in October in a sharp shade of black with a gunmetal-gray band around the side of the phone, at a price of $229.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate card and a two-year voice-and-data plan.

And now, like the iPhone 4 and 4S, the HTC Evo and Evo 3D, and the Samsung Nexus S (among many other phones out there), the Galaxy S II is being released in a simple white plastic casing too.

A T-Mobile spokeswoman emailed an image of the white Galaxy S II, saying the phone doesn't yet have a solid release date but that "it will be available in time for the holidays."

The specs of the white Galaxy S II are the same as the black model -- a 4.52-inch touchscreen with an 800 x 480 pixel resolution, a 1.5-gigahertz dual-core processor, 1 gigabyte of RAM, 16 gigabytes of built-in storage, an 8-megapixel camera on the back that can shoot 1080p video, and a 2-megapixel camera up front.

The Galaxy S II is 0.37 inches thick, weighs 4.77 ounces and runs on T-Mobile's 4G network.
