That's a pretty sad move by Samsung. All of those people have spent £500 and now have an outdated phone for the sake of a 1.4ghz processor to compete with an iPhone not officially annouced yet!
Knowing how annoyingly my sgs2 heats up when playing games or watching high-res streaming videos, I would very much like to know what will samsung do about this. Or the 1.4Ghz model owners will be putting on the table their phones to prevent from nasty burns? :D
is the GHZ gona lock you to more customers? give us something like a N9 or N950, that would make me more excited. anyway NOKIA shoot SAMSUNG "KA-boom" with the big BANG of meego and window phone and symbain anna and symbain belle, what does samsung have to say now? huh???
Anonymous, 27 Jun 2011as a s2 owner if i dont get an update to the 1.4GHz then i will never buy another samsung again .You can easly overclock it to 1,4ghz or even 1,66ghz stable and save.
YOUR KIDDING ME?! Just got myself an s2 about 2 month ago! Outdated allready!
Samsung is sure gonna loose some supporters if the current SGSII users cannot choose to bump up the clock speed of their phone.
haha yay saved! i was about to buy it but was still waiting for something like this :D sad to those who bought it earlier :D i will buy the 1.4 one :D
Not really looking forward to it - I'm sure bumping up the processor speed will have its equivalent toll on battery life. What Samsung should be updating us about is the 32gb variant.
just bought sgs2!!!!
i was happy to buy sgs3 next year,
but an updated sgs2 within weeks of release? (5 days in Malaysia)???
damn u samsung, i'll go for htc sensation2 next year!!
wish they would fix the horrible colour banding and yellow tint down the left handside before upgrading the cpu, my old sgs screen was clearer :(
as a s2 owner if i dont get an update to the 1.4GHz then i will never buy another samsung again .
Excellent news. I'm due for an upgrade in October and am impatiently awaiting a SGS II. Hopefully, this upgraded SoC also means an upgraded battery. I'm prepared to sacrifice some thickness (or thinness) for a higher capacity battery. My phone doesn't need to go through small spaces under doors all that often, lol.
