TFTS is reporting that the Samsung Galaxy S II will arrive in the United Kingdom next month, a few months ahead of schedule. We first saw the Samsung Galaxy S II at their unpacked event at the Mobile World Congress earlier this month. Now, a UK cellular sales site clove.co.uk said on their blog that it will be available in March and they’ve even started a pre-order page for it.
Clove’s blog site is reporting that the 32gb Samsung Galaxy S II will be available off contract for £590 which translates to $949 US Dollars (WHOA). The 16gb model is showing up for pre-order on their site for £510 which translates to $810 US Dollars (again WHOA).
More after the break
Clove is a technology sales site and not a carrier so this information is definitely not gospel. Samsung said the Galaxy S II would originally be available in Q2 however, as TFTS speculates, they could be gearing up for an all out war against the iPhone 5 by getting out in front of it. There is of course no word on when the Galaxy S II will come to the United States, but we will start looking for it in Q2.
The Samsung Galaxy S II is loaded with features, and a big improvement from even the original Galaxy S (which in our opinion is a great piece of hardware less the struggle it has been for a froyo update)
