Some Samsung Galaxy S II phones will come with NVIDIA's Tegra 2 instead of Exynos
The Samsung Galaxy S II is not simply
the successor to the popular original Galaxy S, but it's also the
first phone to showcase the capabilities of Samsung's own
Exynos dual-core chip, a direct competitor to NVIDIA's Tegra
2. But now it seems that - weirdly enough - some Galaxy S II handsets
will ship with this very Tegra 2 chip instead of the Exynos, as per
NVIDIA itself, which has confirmed this to tech blog ITProPortal. Check out our in-depth look at dual-core processors to learn what this means for you.
Other handsets however will still ship with Exynos, previously known as Orion, on board. Reporting about the chip on the Galaxy S II was mixed as Samsung itself seemed to mistakenly quote the handset as carrying the Tegra 2 chip. There are no details about whether this will affect all locations, which will get the phone, but some speculations hint to an NVIDIA-powered Galaxy S II for the UK and the US. We'll abstain from any final conclusions until we hear a confirmation by Samsung, but the most likely reason for this is the expected high demand and insufficient production capacity. It will be weeks before we find out, but in the meantime, check out our hands-on of the Samsung Galaxy S II from MWC!
