The white variant of the Samsung Galaxy S2 will be available on O2 when it goes on sale in the UK, the carrier has confirmed.
O2 has updated the ‘coming soon’ section of its website to reveal the handset’s status, now scheduled for release in September. It joins Three, which also confirmed last month that it is on board for the launch.
Samsung recently launched the Galaxy S2 in North America, where it may also be prepping an upgraded 4.5-inch version of the handset.
With news that sales of the original Galaxy S2 has already surpassed five million, the timing of white S2’s arrival is doubtless a preemptive strike on Apple, amid mounting anticipation for the announcement of the iPhone 5, also rumoured to land next month.
Powered by the latest Gingerbread release of Google’s Android operating system, the Galaxy S2 is home to a 1.2GHz dual core processor, a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, 16GB of internal storage and an eight-megapixel snapper with video recording skills in full HD 1080p.
Stay tuned as we bring you pricing details for the Samsung Galaxy S2 white in the weeks to come.
