The Samsung Galaxy S II, otherwise known as the i9100, will apparently get a speed bump as the manufacturer may have decided to raise the clock speed of its system on chip by 20 per cent to 1.2GHz to earn the status of fastest smartphone on the market.
Samsung Estonia confirmed the information on its facebook page which means that the phone may have the same clock speed as the soon-to-be announced HTC Sensation and will position it ahead of the Motorola Atrix and the LG Optimus 2X.
It is yet unknown as to whether the phone - which will replace the Galaxy S as the firm's flagship handset - will be powered by a new Exynos system on chip SKU as Samsung has only unveiled one model, the 4210 as of now.
The SoC will be a dual core one, based on the Cortex A9 architecture, with a Mali-400MP dual GPU. It will come with 1GB RAM at least with 16GB onboard storage, a 4.3-inch WVGA super AMOLED touch screen with Gorilla Glass, Wi-Fi, an 8-megapixel rear camera with flash, a front facing 2-megapixel front facing camera for video conferencing, Android 2.3.4.
Samsung has also chosen a 1650mAh battery as well as an FM Radio, Bluetooth, DLNA compatibility TV Out, microUSB while measuring a mere 8.5mm, thinner than either the iPhone 4 or the iPad 2.
