Galaxy S II Delayed a Bit to Allow for Hardware Improvements

Samsung’s new flagship handset line, the Galaxy S II, is said to be getting a hardware bump ahead of its launch. Announced with a dual-core 1GHz processor, it’s being reported that the company is ratcheting things up a bit to a 1.2GHz chipset. This puts it more in line with the recent Motorola (Atrix, Bionic) and HTC (EVO 3D) products. According to a source close to GSM Arena, the phone might not hit carriers until May or June as a result of the hardware adjustment. We’re not aware of too many people who would complain over the slight delay because of performance improvements.
