Steroidal 1.4GHz version of the Samsung Galaxy S II to be launched in time for the next iPhone
posted by Daniel P. / Jun 27, 2011, 7:31 AM
After Eldar Murtazin's musings that the Apple-Samsung legal kerfuffle is actually over the next high-end phones of Samsung, which will supposedly feature an edge-to-edge display, faster chipset and so on, we have Asian sources telling that Samsung is prepping a 1.4GHz sequel, which might not even be included in the Galaxy line, but get an altogether unique name of its own.
While this could just be a version with the NFC capabilities unleashed, and overclocked chipset, we'd rather hope it's going to be more than that, since a few MHz more alone is unlikely to sway the next iPhone buyers enough, provided that it will also sport a dual-core chipset - Apple's A5 - capable of Full HD 1080p video recording.
Still, Samsung is not new to the overclocking game, given the 1.2GHz Hummingbird in the Infuse 4G, or the Samsung Galaxy S 2011 Edition, which features a 1.4GHz Qualcomm processor. Or, alternatively, the sources might mean the Samsung Galaxy S II Mini, which is listed with 1.4GHz chipset as well, but then they say the rumored handset will be external to the Galaxy line. We'll see how this plays out, the possibility that this is something new and fresh is always exciting, but we shouldn't be raising our hopes too high until we know more.

If an updated version will be launched around September, I'm hoping that means the first version will be coming to the U.S. soon. Or they might wait and just give the U.S. this version. Hoping for the fist scenario.

Is it me or is Samsung on a singular mission to slay Apple? Samsung has this vendetta against Apple. I like Samsung's energy. They are making real good moves. Once the Samsung Galaxy S II hits the U.S. it will sell like hot cakes. Samsung is about to be the #1 phone manufacturer in the world & wants to eliminate Apple in the process. I am so impressed with the Samsung Galaxy S II that I am so curious to see what the Samsung Galaxy S III with its edge to edge design is going to look like. I wonder how powerful that phone will be? Problably a 2.5 GHz quad-core phone? Just speculating! :-)

I'll be very pleased with it (devil) but they or the other companies will never do the SUPERPHONE. Samsung HTC Motorola there's always something in their phones that isn't SUPER so for now I'm staying with my N82 waiting for the SUPERPHONE :D

i believe with the fall of nokia, they are the #1 handset maker in the world. in over all sales (dumb phones and smart phones) they nail everyone else to the wall. but who pays attention to dumbphones!? lol :)

They should fix all the bugs/defects with the SGS2 first before they release another crappy device.

isnt this about the same time that the "hurcules" was supposed to drop on Tmobile? It was different from the other GalaxyS-2 phones. Maybe this is what it is? Ohhhhh that would give me a big fat happy face. :)

what else could they do to make the Galaxy S II better? that's like going beyond my 10% of usable brain power. actually, i think they could start by making it metal. i bet if we all talked about HOW WE WISH SAMSUNG WOULD MAKE A PHONE THAT FEELS AS NICE AS THE APPLE IPHONE 4 they would listen. xD

If they do this i won't be buying another Samsung product. I've only had the S2 for about a week and i was hoping there'd be a fair amount of external development for it on xda. If an updated version is released for the US then the development will stop and people will only bother with the newer version, making the current S2 practically obsolete.
