The Galaxy S2 has landed and it is kicking some ass in the benchmarking department.
Early benchmarks for the upcoming Galaxy S2 are in and we think it’s safe to say, this one is a beast. Boasting one of Samsung’s own 1.2GHz dual-core Exynos processors, Engadget points to some synthetic benchmarks that show the superphone registering 3,053 in Quadrant (more than double the score of a Nexus One running Android 2.2+ and triple what the original Samsung Galaxy S could pull off).
Samsung has yet to elaborate on what version of the phone will be shipped to each territory. Earlier in the year, it emerged that while some of the phones will be boasting Samsung's Exynos CPU, others will be shipping with Nvidia’s increasingly popular Tegra 2 chipset. Nvidia confirmed the news at the beginning of March. It’s thought that Samsung couldn’t produce enough Exynos CPUs in time for the launch so Tegra will pick up the slack until production reaches a satisfactory level. Until then, some territories will be getting the Tegra 2 model and some the Exynos.
Set for launch later this month (and on May 1 in the United Kingdom), we’ll find out more once the teardowns begin.
