Samsung Galaxy S II and the secret Angry Birds level

By Posted 6 Jul 2011, 13:31

If you are yet to pick up the Samsung Galaxy S II and are looking for a few more incentives to do so, you may be interested to know that the handset will come with a bonus level of the popular Angry Birds game, exclusive to Samsung’s latest smartphone.

The device is already widely available to buy in most parts of Europe, but Samsung are now preparing to launch the highly popular handset in the US and other parts of the world, with three of the main US carriers each getting their own variants of the Galaxy S II, similar to what occured with the original Galaxy S smartphone.

Now here’s the part where Angry Birds work their magic into the launch of the device in other regions. Samsung has teamed up with Rovio to include a secret level which can only be accessed on the Samsung Galaxy S II, as reported from TechTree. The level will come in the form of the Angry Birds Pignic update and players will have to find a golden egg to unlock the level.

Rovio has made things easy for you though by releasing a video which explains how to unlock the secret level exactly, so perhaps it is not so secret after all. You’ll find the video below this post, and you can see that the hidden level contains some Samsung Galaxy S II-like features and even the logo is included there just to give Samsung some bragging rights.

For die hard fans of Angry Birds, we have a feeling that a hint of jealousy is going to creep in for sure, knowing that you can only access this level on the Samsung Galaxy S II. It’s a major coup for Samsung though and even though it’s hard to believe, we have a feeling that this exclusive feature alone is going to help to secure a few extra sales.

However, if you have a rooted device, we predict that it won’t be long until someone figures out how to get this secret level running on other Android handsets, as it doesn’t seem too hard a task to achieve. Check out the video below and let us know what you think of it.

As an owner of a different handset, does the idea of a new level of Angry Birds exclusive to the Samsung Galaxy S II frustrate you? We’ll let you know if Rovio make this level available to everyone else – we doubt it though.
