While we were at the Samsung launch party for the U.S. Galaxy S II variants our T-Mobile PR friends were acting kind of strange. While we could touch, feel and video the Sprint and AT&T versions of the device, it was hands off from our normal party hungry and friendly T-Mobile folks. Now it’s clear why that was.
In case you missed it over the weekend we started hearing reports that the processor in the Samsung Galaxy S II was going to be different for the T-Mobile version of the device than the one on Sprint or the one on AT&T. This rumor became realty when some unknowing person responsible for the GalaxysSupport Twitter account, tweeted the exact processor specs for the device.

Verizon’s Twitter people did this as well for the non-existent Samsung Galaxy S II on Verizon by identifying it as a 4G/LTE device. Verizon dismissed it as a misreference to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 with 4G/LTE and rightfully so. This person though at Samsung had some really in depth technical information for a 140 character tweet.
The Samsung Galaxy S II for T-Mobile will run a 1.5ghz dual core Qualcomm APQ8060 processor instead of the Exonys processor found on the other two carrier versions.
As Androidcentral points out many will be disappointed over the change in processor and also the fact that it’s said to not utilize T-Mobile’s fastest 4G and max out at speeds of 14mbps. We’ll have to see when it comes out.
