The much-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S2 will hit stores this month after all it seems, flying in the face of reports that it had been delayed until June.
Earlier today, Samsung’s Estonian division and Samsung India appeared to confirm that the release of the company’s flagship smartie had been pushed back for reasons left unexplained. It was also claimed that the phone’s dual core processor had been upgraded from 1GHz to 1.2GHz.
However, since then things have become somewhat muddied. Samsung Tomorrow, the Twitter presence of the company’s Korean nerve centre, has now indicated it will be pushing ahead with the April release as originally intended. In select markets, anyway.
Sammy tweeted: "Samsung GALAXY S II will be first released in April, as planned.
“It will be gradually rolled out in each market according to the local launch timetable.”
It’s not abundantly clear from the latter statement when we can reasonably expect the phone on these shores. However, the fact that Blighty is a priority market suggests that we’ll almost certainly be among the first in line to get it.
Even so, as with a lot of tech products set for release this year, but hit by component supply problems stemming from the Japanese earthquake disaster, supply shortages are likely.
