We have some important news for those of you who are planning to pick up the Samsung Galaxy S II handset, and it’s news which is has a good side and bad side to it. We’re hearing that the handset has been delayed, but that is due to Samsung’s plans to upgrade the processor.
At the moment, the handset features a 1Ghz dual-core processor, but Samsung has decided to upgrade this to a beefy 1.2 Ghz dual-core chip, likely due to the fact that they want their handset to be right up there with the best handsets out on the market in terms of hardware.
This information has been confirmed on the Estonian Samsung Facebook page, as reported from GSM Arena. However, this processor upgrade is likely to take some time so a release has been put back until May or even June in some areas. Engadget are saying it will launch May 6th in the UK, but reports from India suggest that it won’t release globally until June.
What are your thoughts on this? Are you happy that the phone is getting upgraded at the expense of a release delay? We’ll let you know once Samsung makes it all offiical.
