White Galaxy S II heading to O2, Three, Vodafone and Orange in the UK next month

British networks O2, Orange, Three and Vodafone are now listing the sleek white version of Samsung's Galaxy S II on their "coming soon" pages, with a September release planned across all four networks. This fits with Samsung's plans for of the SIM-free white Galaxy S II, which is due to begin shipping from Sep. 1. T-Mobile UK is the only major network not yet listing the white version, but given its connections to Orange, we'd expect TMo to carry it alongside the currently-stocked black version.

So what's the verdict, would-be Galaxy S II owners? Buy the black model now, or wait a month, save a few more pennies and opt for the white version?

  • I want one now!
  • Always bet on black.
  • Hahaha, nice!
  • White SII? Apple will sue. No one is allowed to make a white touch screen candy bar. That violates Apple Patents. What they should do is make it thinner with a keyboard, that way, Apple can't sue. You could type on the screen if you like, or with the keyboard if you choose. That would foil Apple.
  • Yeah, you're right. I'm sure Samsung's developers imagined both both black and white versions of their mobile touch devices long before Apple came out with theirs.
  • This is some bull! Where is the US version?!
  • my Upgrades ready end of october, I'm wondering if anything better than this will come out before then... if not I think I'll be getting this! damn sexy piece of hardware!
  • The next Nexus is supposed to come out by the end of the year. Might as well wait to see what that offers.
  • I suspected from the leaked Sprint post yesterday that we'd be seeing a black and white in the US, too. Why else would they list the Epic Touch once with a white and a second time with a black background?
  • I hope this comes to Canada soon
  • Amazing how we keep hearing of Galaxy S news worldwide but hardly anything of a U.S release. Why are you torturing us!?!?
  • Is it just me or does anyone else think that anything other than black draws attention away from the screen when looking at it? I can't ever see myself getting a white device.
  • How about some other colors, hey Samsung? Metallic Silver and blue perhaps. Now what about the 32GB version, when's that coming out?
  • finally a white phone done right. not a fan of the device itself but the design with respect to the color is spot on.
