Samsung Galaxy S II delayed until May, 32GB model to cost more than $1100 in the UK

Samsung Galaxy S II delayed until May, 32GB model to cost more than $1100 in the UK
Back in February we informed you that UK carrier Clove has listed the Samsung Galaxy S II with a steep, steep price for a mid-to-late March launch in old Blighty.

Truth is, we were less than impressed with the information it's to cost $820 for the 16GB version and $949 for the 32GB one, but now we realize how little we knew back then, as Clove UK has updated this info and it turns out the actual price of the Samsung Galaxy S II is set at $860 for the 16GB model and $1,152 for the 32GB version!

We will be fair and square (as always), and will note it costs so much without a contract (thank god for that) and all local taxes are included, but yet this is a hefty price for any handset, not to mention our disappointment it's postponed to an unspecified date in May.

Of course, it's highly likely that the contractless price will be a bit more affordable in the US, but as of now there is no official information about when this phone will appear in the States, or the name of its US carrier. For more info on the device check out our Samsung Galaxy S II Hands-on.

It's not the first time Clove's preorder prices have been all over the place and nothing like the final pricing when the phone finally comes out. I would wait until Samsung confirms an actual date and pricing before deciding what the "actual" price is.

If this is the price (which I highly doubt) for the Samsung S2 then Samsung can take the phone and shove it up their asking price. This is absolutely insane, I will probably get the LG Optimus 2x from Tmobile. The price competes with high end laptops and this is no laptop so shove it!!

Not even worth announcing it at all at this price.

It's about time somebody in the Android camp released a phone with 32GB internal storage + microSD expansion.

Tooo Expensive you can buy a good Lap top for this price. Try Sony Ericsson ARC or LG Optimus 2X

This price is all wrong,some websites have the 16gb down for 580 odd euro. Plus this 580 price is the first release price which drops over the following 2 or 3 weeks when theres more stock available then mobile networks subsidise the price on pay as you go to arounf the 450 ish level,many of which can be unlocked even when bought through newtork stores

The final design of the S2 was confirmed just 2 weeks before WMC in February. So its SciFi to think Sammy is able to build millions of phones in just 2 months! We can be lucky if we get a S2 before June or maybe july ;)
