Samsung Galaxy S 2 To Come With 1.2GHz Dual Core

Samsung Mobile has confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy S 2, the successor of the uber-popular Galaxy S, will come with a dual core system on chip, at least in the UK.

Techradar got that confirmation from Samsung UK itself but couldn't find out whether the chip would be one of Samsung's own Exynos 4210 (or a variant) or one based on the Nvidia Tegra 2 (or a variant).

As of now, only Qualcomm produces system on chips clocked higher than 1GHz and it remains to be seen whether the additional 20 per cent increase will bring some real-life performance improvements or just some cookie points and synthetic benchmark advantages.

Samsung has yet to pin down a date for the release of the Samsung Galaxy S2 in the UK but it is likely that it will happen in April in Europe, sources told Techradar.

Still, there are plenty of retailers which have already put the Galaxy S2 on preorder and from what we can see, there are quite a few bargains to be had as well especially if you don't mind paying a small charge for the phone itself and stick to an 18-month contract.

The Galaxy S2 is one of the thinnest smartphones on the market and was first released at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. It comes with 1GB RAM, a 16GB onboard storage, a great 4.3-inch WVGA screen and the whole set of features you'd expect from a top of the range smartphone.
