It is official – Samsung Galaxy S II gets 1.2 GHz dual-core processor
Rumors about a possibly more powerful CPU replacement have been circulating since February, but the speculations never got confirmed by the manufacturer. It was also reported that we were going to see the snappy Tegra 2 chipset in some Galaxy S II variations, but the news about the upgrade does not make it clear whether Samsung still plans to use Nvidia's processor too or to write it off completely. We should be able to find the answer to that as soon as the smartphone gets its official release later this month.

I'm either going for this phone or the axtrix, with this phone I could have more power and a more updated version of android twitch only means will be an update away from any new android version. or the atrix with the docks and intriguing desktop interface witch might be useful for all my presentations .... thought decision

Atrix screen sucks because it has Pentile matrix so resolution is worse than SGS II.

Are u a mad. Atrix has a qHD display. Though it has pentile, the resolution is far better than the SGS II

so.. ur comparing a phone thats out with a phone that isnt, and declaring a winner already?
You do realize that the SGS2 carries the Super Amoled2 screen, its not the same as on the SGS1. It has a much higher pixel density by removing the pentile matrix. If one has pentile, and one doesnt, more than likely the one that doesnt will have the better quality.
Of course, you should wait to see them side by side to make that call though.
Im waitin on the SGS2. If the XDA community is anywhere near behind this one as they were behind the vibrant, im going to be a very happy camper.

Go for the Samsung Galaxy SII or be a man and wait till september and purchase the quad core or tegra 3 that is released. It works perfect for me because thats when I get out of OSUT

Are you really fool enough to believe that quadcores come out this year? Wow, very optimistic. I bet we will wait for that at least until Q1 2012.

all the reports that are out from interviews with chip/phone manufacturers say that we will see the Tegra 3 and 4 before 2012. There is a high chance of quad cores as well. But hey, nothing is set in stone.
