While their competitors went with NVIDIA for their dual-core needs, Samsung – similar to what they did with their Galaxy S and Tab – instead chose to use their own Exynos processor in the Samsung Galaxy S II model they introduced at the show in Barcelona. Sources of Engadget‘s, however, are confirming to them that Samsung is indeed planning on making a version of their phone with a Tegra 2 processor instead.
It’s said that the alternate is being made because Samsung doesn’t anticipate manufacturing as many chips as they’re going to need to meet demand. (Whether that’s by choice or due to an uncontrollable supply constraint wasn’t said.)
Those of us here in the United and States and those in the UK may still only be getting the Exynos models, though, but nothing has been said about which regions will get which models. Such a confusing tale.
