Samsung preps Galaxy II S version 2.0

The enormous success of the Samsung Galaxy S II in the past year has born rumors of an upcoming update. And yes, these rumors held true as an updated Samsung Galaxy S II has been spotted on a German web site.

Samsung Galaxy S II version 2.0 was found to reside on a German web site – Cyberport – belonging to a local online retailer. As expected the novelty strongly resembles the original Galaxy S II but there are some important differences.

One of them can be found in the CPU – the updated Galaxy S II smartphone features a 1.20 GHz dual-core TI OMAP processor whereas the original S II comes with a 1.20 GHz Exynos CPU. There’s little difference between the CPUs with the TI OMAP CPU being a bit faster.

The major difference however lies in the connectivity – the new S II comes with quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE support, as well as quadband UMTS/HSDPA+/HSUPA. The phone also runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, just like the original, but the updates suggest that it is better prepared to run Android 4.0 ICS when the time comes.

There’s no information on whether Samsung will release the Galaxy S II version 2.0 worldwide but in case you reside in Germany you may pick one up for 469.90 EUR which is a fair price compared to what the original costs in this European country.
