We know that the T-Mobile’s version of the popular Samsung Galaxy S II is coming very soon. But it always had the mysteries with respect to the some of the features of the phone that could differ from the other standard features of the Galaxy S II. The info about the processor is one amongst them. Thanks to a tweet from Samsung, we now have more clarity as to what chip resides inside this beast.
@GalaxySsupport, in reply to a query from a customer about the processor inside the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II said that the phone would be coming with a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm APQ8060 processor (SOC). So what could have made T-Mobile and Samsung to switch to Qualcomm processor instead of the usual1.2GHz Exynos dual-core processor that is found in all other variants of the Galaxy S II? Analysts say that this could be a move to support the 42Mbps HSPA+ connectivity offered by the T-Mobile, which is supported by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor but not the Exynos.
Hence folks, you have two more reasons to consider T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy S II: 1.5GHz Qualcomm dual-core processor and the 42Mbps download speeds support. Would you still go for the T-Mobile Galaxy S II or wait for the impending Nexus Prime?
