The Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone will come in the UK with a Samsung Exynos chipset rather than an Nvidia Tegra 2 model, according to an update published by Clove Technology.

The online mobile retailer received the official confirmation from the UK product manager for the smartphone, along with various other titbits.

These include the fact that the phone will be a quad-band model operating at 850/900/1900/2100MHz, that it will have a super AMOLED Plus screen and the box will include the handset, battery, charger, USB cable and a headset.

The rest of the specification list has not apparently changed, as it will still include 1GB RAM, 32GB onboard storage, a 4.27-inch display with WVGA resolution, microSD card slot, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a two-megapixel front facing camera and an eight-megapixel rear one with flash and AF.

The Galaxy S II will be powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread and will be available at the beginning of May for just under £500 unlocked on all major networks.

Samsung's new flagship handset will face some tough competition from the likes of the Motorola Atrix, the Sony Ericsson Arc, the Nokia X7, the LG Optimus 2X and 3D as well as the newly launched HTC Sensation, all of which should sell for between £400 and £500.
