U.S. Cellular to Offer Samsung Galaxy S II for $229.99

US Cellular Samsung Galaxy S II

Samsung and U.S. Cellular announced on Tuesday that the carrier’s customers will soon be able to get their hands on the Samsung Galaxy S II for $229.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate. The Samsung Galaxy S II offers a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, support for U.S. Cellular’s 3G network, 16GB of storage, an 8-megapixel camera capable of recording HD video and more. The device will run Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) at launch and while Samsung has announced intentions to roll out Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) to the Galaxy S II, there’s no confirmation that it will ever hit U.S. Cellular’s model.

“The Galaxy S II is the ultimate phone for people looking to simplify and organize their lives,” said Edward Perez, vice president of sales and marketing operations for U.S. Cellular. “The features combined with U.S. Cellular’s unique benefits, like our Battery Swap, make it the go-to device for customers who depend on their smartphone to keep up with their busy schedules.”

U.S. Cellular said that a data plan is required and new two-year contract may be required for new customers who want to take advantage of the competitive $229.99 pricing. Neither U.S. Cellular nor Samsung provided a specific launch date for the phone, although we suspect it will be available in the coming weeks, if not sooner.
