Samsung Galaxy S II Gets Official UK Release Date of May 1st… Sort Of


I can’t tell you how many news articles I’ve read of new release dates for Samsung’s Galaxy S II. First its been delayed, then its not, then it came out last week, then it didn’t. Its enough to drive someone mad! It reminds me of this song  my sister used to play, “First you’re hot then you’re cold. Yes then you’re no.”

Well, apparently we’ve finally gotten the official word from Samsung that they are planning to launch their newest flagship phone May 1st. You may now update your Google Calendar. Or actually – you might want to wait for this next part.

UK retailer Phones4U (great name by the way) will actually allow you to pre-order the phone and get it in your hands as early as April 27th. I know just by reading our comments on Phandroid that a lot of you cannot wait to get your hands on this phone and will definitely be taking up Phones4U on their offer.

So what are you waiting for? Update your Google Calendar (again) and come April 27th you can be one of the first lucky people in the world to get their hands on the powerful, yet slim and uber sexy Galaxy S Part Deux.
