According to their Estonian Facebook page, the Samsung Galaxy S II is getting a pre-release processor upgrade from a 1GHz dual-core chip to 1.2GHz. GSMArena claims to have further confirmed the change with an inside source. There is no telling if the bump up in processing speed is reason for the handset’s delay back to a May launch, but it stands to reason it may be a good part of it.
It marks the second instance in so many months of Samsung returning to an announced product for pre-release changes. You might remember the company announced the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 at Mobile World Congress only to follow it up at last month’s CTIA with an overhauled version of the slate.
