Samsung Galaxy S II Within spotted with new Sprint back

Sprint Galaxy S II Within shown using custom frame

Sprint's version of the Galaxy S II, the Within, has finally been spotted in earnest. True to expectations, it's not using the original design's back and has a custom frame around the camera along with the requisite Sprint logo. This is my next's copy shows, though, that Sprint this time will follow Samsung's design much more closely than the major remake that was the Epic 4G.

The smartphone's internals were always expected to remain the same, apart from the necessary switches to CDMA and likely WiMAX 4G. As such, it should still have Samsung's dual-core 1.2GHz Exynos processor, a front camera, and the rear eight-megapixel camera visible in one of the shots. In addition to speed, the Galaxy S II's centerpiece has always been its 4.3-inch, 540x960 Super AMOLED Plus screen.

A release date is unknown and may be the most contentious issue. Claims exist that US carriers are lagging on a timely release. Sprint is still rumored to be carrying the Within inside of weeks or even days and could make it public very soon. AT&T and Verizon are also known to be making their own takes on the concept.
