The high powered Galaxy update, running on Android Gingerbread 2.3 and weighing in at 116g boasts a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and Super AMOLED Plus 4.3 inch touchscreen and 8Mp camera.

The phone will set back Galaxy fans $5 per month on a $59 cap or else for free on $79 plan. It also has two other pricier options on a ‘timeless extreme’ plan.

The phone is to be released “across all major networks and retailers” in Australia although a Samsung spokesperson failed to disclose the precise date when quizzed by ChannelNews last week.

However, Optus may have left the cat out the bag and its website indicates the release date is June 1st.

“Pre-order before 28 May and we will aim to deliver your phone on 1 June 2011, the day Samsung Galaxy S II is released in Australia,” Optus states.

The $59 plan comes with 2GB Data, “unlimited standard SMS and MMS” unlimited access within Australia to Facebook, Twitter and other social media, within Australia. The package is valued at $700.

 

Optus is also sweetening the deal by giving a bonus desktop dock for first 200 customers and appears to be the first off the mark with Galaxy II with none of the other carriers offering the device, including Telstra and Vodafone as yet.

The telco declined to say how pre sales of the device were going, which has been available online since Friday last.
