Samsung Galaxy S II upgraded to 1.2GHz dual-core processor

Galaxy S II boosted to 1.2GHz

Samsung’s upcoming dual-core smartphone the Samsung Galaxy S II is to add an extra punch with its 1GHz dual-core processor making the jump to a zippy 1.2GHz model.

Announced via the company’s Estonian Facebook page, the Samsung Galaxy S II’s reported new processor would see the device, tipped for a UK release later this month, landing as the highest specced handset on the market, trumping the current fleet of dual-core blowers.

Roughly translated by gadget blog Tech Radar, the Estonia arm of Samsung confirmed the bumped up spec via its official Facebook page stating something along the lines of: "Super news! S II processor, the 1.2GHz Galaxy (1.0GHz instead of the previously mentioned). It is Samsung S Galaxy II, the fastest dual-core smartphone Gingerbread painting!"

If accurate the unusual move of increasing a handset’s specifications midway through a launch campaign could be seen as Samsung trying to head off the repeatedly leaked and reported HTC Pyramid which is believed to be headed for an official unveiling next week sporting a 1.2GHz dual-core processor of its own.

Adding strength to the hazy translations GSM Arena has claimed “an internal source” has confirmed that the “Galaxy S II CPU has indeed been updated to 1.2GHz.” Samsung UK is yet to officially comment on the matter.

Will we see the Galaxy S II landing with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor or will that milestone be left to the HTC pyramid? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
