HTC myTouch Slide 4G, etc. But Samsung may get the opportunity to lead the campaign against the forthcoming Apple iPhone 5 i.e. Android vs iPhones. Galaxy S II comes with an impressive set of Tech Specs which prima facia leads to iPhones.
The Galaxy S II was given worldwide release dates from May 2011, by more than 140 vendors in some 120 countries.
Not all regions are to receive the Exynos 4210 "GT-i9100" model. It is speculated that some would get the Tegra 2 powered version, the "GT-i9103." Similarly some regions may receive a 'Super Clear LCD' (SC-LCD) on the Tegra 2 version. Samsung has not yet confirmed which regions will receive the variant models. According to Eldar Murtazin, of Mobile-Review.com, this is believed to be because Samsung may not be able to meet shipment demands of both its own Exynos chip and Super AMOLED Plus screens. He writes that nobody expected the "huge success" and "sky high" demand for the previous Samsung Galaxy S.
The UK received the GT-i9100 (Exynos 4210 powered) and it is also well speculated that the North American release (USA with likely Canada as well) would also get the GT-i9100, Exynos 4210 version.
In the UK, Phones4U was the first retailer to have exclusive rights to release the device earlier than others.

On June 8, 2011, a Verizon Wireless representative was cited as saying that the Samsung Galaxy S II would launch on their network sometime in July.
