Samsung Hercules in the wild

T-Mobile and Rogers fans alike have a special leak in store for them today. Canadian-based MobileSyrup was at a Telus and Samsung sponsored concert last night and just so happened to snap a pic of the widely anticipated Samsung Hercules, the device rumored to be T-Mobile and Telus’ Galaxy S II variant.

While it may seem strange to see the Hercules name pop up on two carriers with different 3G bands, Telus is famous for landing reworked T-Mobile devices. Not only that, but the Hercules is actually rumored to launch with T-Mobile’s AWS bands along with support for the more standard 850/1900MHz configuration. A simple carrier rebrand and Telus wouldn’t even need to mess with the Hercules’s internals.

As far as other rumored specs on the device go, we’re still looking at a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, a 4.5-inch display, full HD 8MP camera, 2MP front-facing camera and yes, blazing fast 42Mbps HSPA+.

Current rumors have the T-Mobile Hercules seeing a late September launch, so it shouldn’t be long until this device is made official. What do you think T-Mobile (and Telus) customers? If T-Mo didn’t land the Galaxy S II and only got the Hercules instead, would you buy it?
