    Samsung Galaxy S II to Get CPU Upgrade to 1.2GHz - May Also Delay Its Release


    Here's some good and bad news that I know several of you guys would appreciate knowing, especially cereal killer. The good news is that the Samsung Galaxy S II superphone will actually get a pre-release upgrade to the clock speed on its dual-core cpu from 1GHz to 1.2GHz. This rumor comes from two sources: One is a Samsung Estonia Facebook Page, and the other is from GSM Arena. Unfortunately, the bad news is that this will delay the phone for a global release until about June. Strangely, this is referring to the version of the phone that sports Samsung's own CPU, but the Tegra 2 version of the phone is still on track.

    I guess that makes our choices a bit tougher, since now we have to decide between the Galaxy S II and several other juicy looking phones that are coming soon, and we also have to decide if we want to wait for the "faster" version of the Galaxy S II. Decisions, decisions...

    [Update]:The rumor above has been confirmed by the following tweet from Samsung India:

    Exactly how many different sleek styles can their be? I find these comments annoying, do you want a pentagon in your pocket or what? Either it's going to have sharp edges and not be sleek or it's going to be rounded and smooth making it sleek, or it's going to have a physical keyboard making it thick. That's about your options right there.

    I'd get used to it if I were you.

    He wasn't complaining, he was simply stating that it looks similar to an iPhone.

    Phone's specs look nice, I'll check where the date stands when the Bionic is released.. Or whatever phone's next for Verizon.

    Do we know for sure if this is also coming to Verizon? I read rumors of that and wondered if there was real evidence? If the call quality is good, this may make my Bionic decision harder!

    All I'm saying is so will 90% of the smartphones going into the market, it's a visually nice design...and people seem to make lots of comments in general regarding one phones similarities to another, especially with animosity toward the iPhone. Kinda like saying HEY, my HP laptop loots a lot like a Toshiba Satellite...

    Well, yea...because it's the form factor that works, sexy sells.

    I wonder how the increase in speed will affect battery life. My laptop has a 1.2 ghz dual core processor and it lasts about 5 hours on a 6 cell battery. The screen is much larger at 11.1 inches, but I still think the battery life will suffer.

    Totally agree, I'll be watching this one very closely, the delay in release might just push it to release about when my 2yr contract is up which would be sweet, but then Q4 phones will be about cooked up too so I don't know yet, might just wait for quad core and be done with it for a while. Either way I learned my lesson this time around, I'll never do a 2yr again!

    Obviously it is trying to mimic the iphone. Have you guys seen touchwiz?! Blatant rip off of iphone look as far as homogenizing how apps look and the app drawer and even the 4 main shortcuts at the bottom.

    This phone still seems pretty cool, despite the rip off issue. Root + LP
