Samsung to upgrade Galaxy S II to counter Apple's iPhone 5

Samsung Galaxy S II upgrade to see 1.4GHz dual-core CPU

Samsung is expected to upgrade its Samsung Galaxy S II handset this September with a 1.4GHz dual-core processor to land at IFA

Samsung is to upgrade its market leading smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S II, with the ultra-thin handset to see its processor upped to a 1.4GHz dual-core offering in September, new reports suggest.

Launched with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor earlier this year, upgraded pre-release from the 1GHz dual-core CPU touted at the handset’s first unveiling at Mobile World Congress, the Samsung Galaxy S II has become the UK’s number one handset sporting a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display and Google’s Android operating system.

Upping the handset’s CPU, Samsung is expected to reveal the updated Galaxy S II device this September, hinting at an IFA arrival, with the 1.4GHz dual-core processor to land alongside the latest version of Google’s Android Gingerbread OS, version 2.3.4.

Reasoned to be as a counter to the expected Apple iPhone 5, it has been reported that the refreshed Galaxy S II will maintain its 8-megapixel camera with 1080p Full HD video recording capabilities, 1GB of RAM and lightweight minimalist form factor.
