You certainly waited long, our American friends, but your patience will finally be rewarded. Tonight Samsung is going to unveil the US versions of its Galaxy S II smartphone and it appears that it will be even hotter than its European sibling.

There's good evidence that the US-bound Super AMOLED Plus screen will be stretched from 4.3" up to 4.5".

It seems it's the FCC that suggest the dimensions of the Sprint version of the Galaxy S II will have a larger screen than that of the European version. If the screen-to-bezel ratio is preserved (and we don't see a reason for it to change) the Epic Touch as the devices is reportedly called will come with the 4.5" Super AMOLED Plus. Now we've seen a screen just like that on the AT&T-bound Infuse 4G, which was the first Super AMOLED Plus device ever, so the technology is obviously there.

Yesterday we saw a spyshot of a reportedly unannounced device, while Samsung is also planing a juicy Unpacked event on September 1st at the annual IFA in Berlin. So we guess, we should be hearing more news from the South Korean company.

We will be covering the Samsung press conference in New York live tonight so if you stay tuned, you'll be able to find out if this turns out to be true in less than 12 hours. The event is slated for 6PM EST, which makes up for 11PM London time. You do the math for your own locale.
