It is all but confirmed by Samsung that a variant of the Samsung Galaxy S II featuring an NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor instead of the in-house Exynos chip will exist under the model number I9103, but new rumors are suggesting the CPU switch won’t be the only difference between the two versions. What we may see is the I9103 also swapping a Super AMOLED Plus display for a Super Clear LCD display.

While this news exists only as rumor for now, we can think of a few reasons for Samsung to develop this secondary version of the Galaxy S II. The most obvious is possible production delays in the actual AMOLED and CPU components, leaving Samsung with no choice but to stock up on alternative components. There is also a chance the I9103 model will be offered as a lower-priced alternative in some areas.
