After weeks of waiting, AT&T has finally updated customers on the release details for the Galaxy S II. The much anticipated device will be out on October 2, and will cost $199 on contract. This will be the second Galaxy S II device launched in the US, the first being the Epic 4G Touch on Sprint.

The AT&T version of the Galaxy S II will be rocking a dual-core Samsung Exynos chip ar 1.2GHz per core, a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen at 800x480, 16GB of internal storage, an 8MP rear camera, and 3MP front camera. If you ask AT&T, they’ll tell you that the S II supports 4G, but what they mean is HSPA+; this isn’t a LTE handset. The AT&T version of the phone also has NFC wireless technology, unlike the Sprint phone.

The AT&T Galaxy S II is running Android 2.3 Gingerbread with TouchWiz 4.0 on top. The next version of Android is expected to be announced in the coming weeks, so this phone may seen be running outdated software. Anyone planning on picking this one up?
