Samsung Hercules Unveiled For T-Mobile, Galaxy S 2 Variant Confirmed

The vaunted Samsung Hercules is rumored to be T-Mobile’s first HSPA+ 42Mbps device and if nothing else about the device grabs your attention, that fact alone should. Up until this point it’s look, style, color and pretty much everything else has been a guessing game. Will it or won’t it be a Samsung Galaxy S 2 model or variant for T-Mobile has been a question we’ve been asking ourselves almost daily since word first came down that this device existed back in May with the leaked 2011 roadmap.

Well now we’ve got pics and what we consider to be pretty concrete evidence that this is in fact a Galaxy S 2 model since it says Galaxy S 2 on the backplate of the phone. That’s a dead giveaway if we have anything to say about it. Unfortunately none of these images shows off a lot about the phone including the Touchwiz Interface that is undoubtedly running over Android which we are so eager to see. We’ve got three pics for you along with a leaked shot that comes courtesy of Pocket Now this morning which shows the front of the Hercules which matches up quite nicely with our own shot of the front side.

So what do we know about it? Our ninja told us we are definitely looking at a 4.5″ inch display and the phone is fast, fast and fast. Netflix is preinstalled thankfully and we’re told it works like a charm. The messaging, email and calendar app are amazing and much better than the stock Google offerings.

That’s all for now but we know the phone is in the wild so let’s all cross our fingers for a much more in depth look at the Samsung Hercules sometime soon!

  • Intikilla2011

    It’s really disappointing that all four US carriers are modifying the look of the SGSII. I would have bought that model without contract and simply popped my Tmo SIM card in it. I visited PR last month and the Claro network is carrying that unmodified hw model and it was just as described, simply awesome looking. The only reason why I didn’t drop $650 was because I would not have 4G data. No I have to decide between the Hercules and the Vzn version.

    How can I upload images to this comment?
    I got a picture of Korean 4G LTE phone from Sammy coming this September.
    Its specs are almost same as the rumored Hercules, but a little different design.

    4.5 SAMOLED Plus, Qualcomm APQ8060, 1750 mAh battery, 16GB Internal memory, Microsd up to 32GB
    8MP AF with LED Flash + 2MP Front, Gingerbread with TouchWiz 4.0.

    They might want to get it out on the market ASAP,  since many people may not have the Cash Flo in the coming weeks,  let alone months after what occurred Friday to the USA.  Just a thought.  and hopefully if it does make it to the people – it comes WITH OUT ALL THE PROBLEMS that seem to be with phones ‘rushed to market, with lousy QC’.  Hoping it has a good / NO MAKE THAT A GREAT BATTERY LIFE- since this might be one of the last Smartphones TMOB puts out on its own !   It’ll either “makem or breakem”…
    I’m looking to enjoy the phone -’fingers crossed’, as well as hoping for a better break on the data plans.

    OT, but is T-Mobile retentions gone?  I have been with T-Mobile postpaid for 3 years.  Never called support before.  Having problems with dropped calls.  So I called to cancel and they just let me cancel without any attempt to save.  It’s what I wanted so I’m good with it, but, wow, not even an attempt to save.  Guess they don’t care.

      At this point, “loyalty/retention” could give a finger in the middle, and that’s just the truth. So many people have been calling in threatening to leave or hinting they would leave if they did not get phone X or some other special deal. Not saying you’re guilty of this, but it’s like the boy who cried wolf. BTW I do not and have never worked for TM or any cellphone carrier.

      I’m having problems with dropped calls. Can I get a free Sensation?

      Really?????????????????

      • NoMoreT

        You’re an idiot and typical of the consumer-unfriendly attitude so prevalent on this site lately.  I didn’t ask for a single thing, nor did I want anything.  I told them I had a lot of dropped calls, and wanted to cancel.  They made no attempt to save and agreed to cancel.  I was surprised, but fine with it because of all the dropped calls.  That is all that happened.  Your desire to make up fiction tells much about you and your mean attitude towards T-Mobile customers.

          What attempt would they have to save you? A cell site on wheels to be rolled around with you so you stop dropping calls?

          think about it. What could they offer you to stop your dropped calls. Ok I didn’t think so.

      Dude, they don’t care.  We are only one among many.  I was with big red for 10 years when I switched to tmo and not once did they try to retain me.  With millions of customers you and me are just statistics, we are insignificant.

      But if it won’t have original sgs2 processor, then it’s simply won’t be sgs2 we all read reviews about.

      • jarjon76

        It’s a nice phone, but too many people are getting themselves too hyped up for this thing. I’m looking forward to all of the complaints once the novelty of owning this phone wears off. It’ll happen–it happens with every “next big thing” of a phone. Complaints of being “bored” with it or whatever bugs this phone will have are bound to pop up in the coming months (see the post release G2x threads for example).

        Too many people waste time chasing that “perfect phone” dragon when they should really focus on getting a phone with specs they like–that actually exist–and be happy with that. There are a ton of great high end phones out there, so it shouldn’t be a problem finding a great phone for a great price. After all, it’s just a phone not something that will change your life.

        • ItsMichaelNotMike

          Great post Jarjon76… but I allow people to get excited about things like this, after all everyone has their joys and passions, whether it’s collecting whatever, audiophiles, flying, etc.

          And actually, getting into cell phones is fairly “cheap” compared to a lot of “hobbies.”

          But you are right, there’s no such thing as the perfect phone.  It’s a pattern, isn’t it.  Whispers and gossip about upcoming phones, leaked specs, blurry shots, followed by sharp pics, then videos, price lists, the launch, and then the inevitable “battery life sucks on this phone, where’s the updates, Samsung sucks, hey there’s a new phone coming out in 2012, or so I hear.”

Dave if you would be so kind as to delete this entire post thread.. back on topic though, this phone no matter whether it be a qualcomm or an exynos, will still be an upgrade from my current hd2.. Screen wise and everything wise almost… loved how versatile this hd2 was though.. My first phone was a sammy and I’ve pretty much been keeping a pattern of sammy, htc, sammy, htc so I will keep on with this pattern.. Last phone before the hd2 was the samsung memoir, sure it want a smartphone, but it was one hell of a camera (phone) :)

    there’s a link to a samsung galaxy s2 with 800mhz LTE and 4.5inch screen rocking a Qualcomm APQ 8060, which is used because it can take seperate modem chips – LTE /42mbps HSDPA/Wimax etc.   Ugh I’m guessing no Exynos for the hercules.

    I don’t understand why make the screen larger without a resolution bump.  Seems like wasted space and battery.  A 4.5″ qHD or 1280×720 would be very welcome.  With the size so big, I’ll have to figure if I like touchwiz enough over sense to get the sgs2.

    • Intikilla2011

      Visit an ATT wireless store and look at the Samsung Infuse 4G. That device is running the Super Amoled Plus screen at 800X480 (WVGA) resolution and at that res it also has the widest viewing angle at 180 degrees over what’s out there. I do agree a higher res would have been nice but the display is damn sharp ! Rumors have it that Samsung is working on 1280×720 res but that will be on future phones.

      • Anonymous

        I’m with you on this, I think the people complaining about the resolution havent seen the SAmoled+ in action.  The Infuse looks amazing, so i expect nothing less out of this.

    4.5″ screen on a Super Amoled Plus display looks awesome!!! I went into a ATT store last night and asked to see the Samsung Infuse 4g b/c that has the 4.5″ display and I was really impressed. I am now looking forward to the Hercules. I thought 4.3″ was more than enough but I am down and excited on the TMo version now. I took out my MyTouch 4G with it’s 3.8″ display and I quickly lost interest.The Infuse is lighter and the MT4G with a bigger 1750 battery so I expect the Hercules to be around the same weight and with the same battery. I am going to start gathering my tech devices around the apt and begin
    selling somethings so I can stomach the w/o contract price of what the
    price will be. Hercules Hercules…

    Anyone know if maybe Tmobile actually requests or requires what the phone entails or costs before it comes to their network? I’ve been watching a few Tmobile phones and (before this one) a Lot of them (at least from HTC) come with 768 megs of ram/memory where as the same type phones on other networks come with 1 gig… I couldn’t figure out why tmobile kept getting the crappier versions of all these phones, Maybe they tell them to cut features to bring the price down and profit more on the subsidizing of these phones through the plans? Thats the only thing I can think of.. put in an older cheaper processor saves em money, though on this phone raising the screen size another .2 inches doesnt really make sense in cost cutting neccessarily unless they leveraged out the price of the screen increases by the older processor. this is all assuming that the hercules actually gets the Qualcomm processor and NOT the sammy proc.. Which my asumption is leaning on.. I will be passing on this phone if its the older qualc proc.. No thanks tmo/samsung keep trying though..  I’m not holding out for a perfect phone, just a phone that is good, and tmobile keeps getting or taking good phones and making them cheap (off what their comparisons are, i.e. the REAL GS II which i’d take in a heartbeat in its normal UK form). Strike 500 tmobile!

    I’ve been waiting for the phone since it’s announcement at Mobile World Congress. The thing that kinda sucks we’ll have limited cases/protecters since it’s larger than the OG SGS2 but whatever, it’s an awesome phone. Something that does bother me, the HTC Sensation also uses a duel Qualcomm Processor… I wouldn’t mind owning one of the new Iphones ONLY if it’s actually released on T-Mo. I read a few articles that analysists do predict it’s gonna be available to all four major carrier, which would make sense, because Android is really stealing sales… I might purchase this on the day of the release or wait to hear something about the Iphone..Which is probably = to pissing in the wind . I love my Galaxy S 4G but I don’t think it’s as fast as they made it out to be…….

I read a few articles that analysists do predict it’s gonna be available to all four major carrier, which would make sense, because Android is really stealing sales… I might purchase this on the day of the release or wait to hear something about the Iphone..Which is probably = to pissing in the wind . I love my Galaxy S 4G but I don’t think it’s as fast as they made it out to be…….

    I’ve been waiting for the phone since it’s announcement at Mobile World Congress.

    I honestly love the look of this phone and think it looks better then the original sgs2. I’m definitely gonna get this but the processor (if it is qualcomm) will make this so close to being the perfect phone…unfortunately. I can’t complain though cuz anything is probably better then the phone I have (original mytouch 3g). YIKES!

      I have the same phone. Its good to know that someone else is holding out for the perfect phone too, because Android 2.1 slowed down the mytouch 3g to an almost unbearable pace.

        nice to know im not the only one either….i also have mytouch 3g phone and its so slow….its either this phone or iphone 5 or nexus phones =) decisions decisions

    TeleNav preloaded , sweet…. 
    Would you still have to pay $10.99/month for the app?

      Go to the apps for free and download gps for free instead of paying for the built in telenav.

    if not because of the plasticky look and only 800 x 480 i would get it.. I’ll pass and wait for the Nexus 3.

    Hello everyone, I was really looking forward to getting this phone after seeing how out of this world it was internationally, I don’t mind the screen size and the looks.
    What I do care about is the qualcomm processor everyone is complaining about… is qualcomm APQ8060 terrible compared to the international versions processor which comes with XMM 6260? 

    Does it slow the phone? Forgive me for being illiterate in this matter but I really want to know whether this is the galaxy s2 from oversease or just a bigger htc sensation every1 is describing it to be when they mention qualcomm processors? 

    Can someone kindly tell me what the difference will be between this phone and the international sgs2 if it ships with a qualcomm apq8060? Thank you

      The motorola defy was something not unlike what you are asking of, or at least I believe so…

      • Guest

        I think he meant a non smartphone…

        • Gilla87

          whats up, guest.. well then in that case, i guess never? at least not T-MoUSA since they will be gone around March :( These are sad, sad times.. If this Hercules isnt future proof ie. ATT as well as TMo bands I might have to pass on getting it day it comes out.. depending on reviews i might still get it afterwards though.. Guess we just wait til the end of the month for that press event..
