Samsung Galaxy S II will have a Tegra 2 version

Samsung’s latest and greatest* Android smartphone, the Galaxy S II I9100, will not be powered just by Samsung’s own Exynos / Orion processor.

Nvidia has recently confirmed that some Galaxy S II units will be based on the Tegra 2 platform (which also powers handsets like the LG Optimus 2X and Motorola Atrix).

It’s not clear where and when Tegra 2-based Galaxy S II units will be launched. Anyway, I don’t think end users will feel any difference between it and the model that uses Samsung’s processor.

Running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, the Galaxy S II is expected to hit the shelves in Europe starting this month, for prices higher than 500 Euros.

* well, the design ain’t that great. It’s boring and too iPhone-ish.
