Samsung’s next flagship phone, the Galaxy S II, seems to be getting delayed but its not without some benefits. Rumor has it, the skinny handset may be getting a speed boost from 1Ghz to 1.2Ghz. If Samsung has found a way to balance battery life and performance perhaps they are making changes accordingly. Or perhaps they’re feeling the heat from the recently announced HTC Evo 3D and its 1.2Ghz clock speed.

Now, I’ll throw this video in for good measure. It shows off the amazingly smooth, iPhone-ish rotation animations and pinch to zoom functions, all while rendering a flash video without as much as a single hiccup.

One thing is for sure, once we get a solid release date, I will be counting down the days until this superphone hits stateside. Evo 3D or Galaxy S II? Its going to be a great year for Android.
