The Samsung Galaxy S2 will be hitting shelves later than expected, the smartphone maker has announced, but will arrive packing a significantly more powerful chipset.
The follow-up to the massive-selling Galaxy S had been due to drop this month. However, according to a tweet from Samsung India, it’s now not hitting shelves until June.
The tweet stated: “Due to delay in the global launch of SGS2, the device won’t be launched before June. And it’s not just India but it’s delayed all over.”
It’s not all bad news, though. In the meantime, the super-sleek Android smartie is in line for a processor upgrade from the originally announced dual core 1GHz number to a 1.2GHz version - a surprising move this close to launch, granted. But one that's been officially confirmed on the Facebook page for Sammy's Estonian division.
It’s not yet clear what’s prompted Sammy’s change of heart. However, like the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, it’s likely that the launch has been hit by component supply shortages arising from the Japanese earthquake disaster last month.
