While Sprint and AT&T’s variants of the Samsung Galaxy S II will retain the Exynos processor found in the international version of the phone, T-Mobile’s will not. Samsung’s marketing manager Philip Berne confirmed that the 1.2GHz dual-core CPU made in-house by the manufacturer of the Android smartphone would not carry over to the handset, but didn’t do much to shed light on which processor could replace it. While NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 chipset seems an obvious choice, speculation is now centered on Qualcomm’s next-generation Snapdragon APQ8060. The chip was most recently seen powering the now discontinued HP TouchPad. While Samsung has placed orders for NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 CPUs, don’t expect to see the processor in T-Mobile’s Galaxy S II.
