It's been a bit of a roller coaster ride trying to determine when exactly Samsung would drop its Galaxy S II smartphone. Last week a representative from Samsung India tweeted that the Galaxy S II was being delayed at least until June, not just in India, but around the globe. A few days later, Samsung came out and said it would launch as planned. So when is it really coming? If you live in the U.K., you'll be able to nab the Galaxy S II starting May 1, 2011.
Samsung made the announcement in a formal press release rather than communicating with the public via Twitter. When the Galaxy S II drops on May 1st, it will become Samsung's slimmest and lightest smartphone yet, as well as the first handset to offer Samsung's Super AMOLED Plus screen technology, the company said.
Samsung also confirmed that the dual-core processor has been upgraded to 1.2GHz. With all the talk of delays, we began to wonder if this would actually be the case, and we're happy to hear that Samsung didn't backtrack on this one.
