The Samsung Galaxy lineup has always been popular but the SGS2 has taken things to a whole new level. Reviews of Samsung’s top Android phone have been great and the number of recommendations I get from users have exceeded all other Android phones. Now we’ve caught a glimpse of the Samsung Galaxy S2 in white. One thing Android devices have always lacked is that “sexy” factor that you often hear when talking about HTC or Nokia phones. Mobile tech enthusiast dani2xll calls it “Android’s prettiest phone”. With the white SGS2 shipping in August we have a new hot phone on the market.
In the UK and Europe: The order page for the white Galaxy S2 over at MobileFun.co.uk is live and the ship date is schedule for August 15. The steep £410.79 price is for the unlocked version so you won’t be tied to a contract. I’m sure as the mid-August draws closer we’ll see more retailers stocking this Galaxy S2 variant.
SGSII specs include:
- Powerful dual-core 1.2GHz Samsung Orion processor
- Ultra sharp 4.3″ Super AMOLED Plus screen
- Next-generation Bluetooth 3.0
- 1GB RAM lets you multitask with ease
- Comes with Android 2.3 Gingerbread
- 8MP camera with LED flash and 1080p video recording with 2MP front-facing camera for video calls
Personally I’m not a huge fan of white phones but this is a great move by Samsung. I’m sure their hope is that retailers will place this white Galaxy S2 right next to the white iPhone 4 on the shelves.
