Video: Samsung Galaxy S II promo video suggests launch date on Sprint


Yesterday we showed you the latest Samsung Galaxy S II promo video, which made it clear that the best selling phone of the summer would soon show its face on this side of the Atlantic.  I guess we just got caught up in the excitement, because we failed to realize that the video actually has a few hidden clues.  Towards the end of the clip, the Galaxy S II that’s shown off doesn’t feature any carrier branding. But some people have noticed that the phone’s weather and clock widgets confirm some rumors that have been circulating.

The clock widget shows the date September 9th, and the weather widget puts the location in Kansas City.  This seems to match up with rumors that Sprint (whose headquarters are located right outside Kansas City) will be launching the Samsung Galaxy S II on September 9th.  If that’s not enough to convince you, we’d also like to point out that the Visual voicemail app on the screen does belong to Sprint.

We only have a few days to go before Samsung is expected to officially unveil the U.S. versions of the Galaxy S II.  They may be a little late to the game, but we have a feeling that’s not going to matter to most people once the phone hits all four major U.S. carriers.  Check out the video below and let us know if you spot any other hidden clues we might have missed.
