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:
