The super thin, super light Samsung Galaxy S II can now be preordered from Clove Technology for as little as £528, significantly less than the £650 Expansys is charging.

The handset which was announced last week at the Mobile World Congress is the heir to the popular Samsung Galaxy S and is set to be launched in the second quarter of this year.

The most striking feature about the Galaxy S II is how thin and light it is. At 8.5mm and weighing only 116g, it is impossibly portable and yet packs some powerful punch.

There's the huge 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus WVGA capacitive display with a dual core Exynos SoC (born Orion) clocked at 1GHz, 1GGB RAM, 16GB onboard storage (extensible to 48GB via microSDHC card), NFC, AGPS, an 8-megapixel camera with AF and LED flash, Wi-Fi, a 2-megapixel front facing camera and a 1650mAh Li-Ion battery.

As expected, it is powered by Google Android 2.3 (AKA Gingerbread) and come with TouchWiz 4.0 user interface on top. At £528, the phone will be more expensive than the Sony Ericsson Arc but probably cost the same as the Motorola Atrix.

Vodafone is currently the only mobile phone operator to have confirmed the release of the Galaxy S II on its network, only listing it as "coming soon".
