Samsung has been on quest to take at least 10% of the smart phone market since last year. There driving horse behind that mission? The Galaxy S of course. The Galaxy S has shown up on every carrier and is available to pretty much any budget. While we have seen the Galaxy S line take over the world it seems that the buck has not stopped with the Galaxy S II in the wings. The Galaxy S II has been rumored leaked and speculated since February and is surely one the way. Despite recent rumors of the Galaxy S II getting a processor update and being delayed a press release by Samsung denounces the delays and puts a release date for the UK.

The highly anticipated Galaxy S II has received its first official launch date for the United Kingdom. May 1st the high powered monster device will be made available. According to the press release the Samsung Galaxy S II will be made available “across all major networks and retailers.” Of course if it’s not broken right!

The Samsung Galaxy S II is an amazing new phone with specs that can make some laptops and even desktops for that matter forgotten. Firstly the new Samsung Galaxy S II device will come stock with Android 2.3 or Gingerbread. Great start right? But it only gets better. The Samsung Galaxy S II comes fully equipped with a 1.2 GHz dual core processor and 1GB of RAM. Sounds good enough right there, but it gets a bit better. The camera on the Galaxy S II can snap your favorite moments with its 8 mega pixel camera and built in LED flash. What’s more impressive is that due to the dual core nature of the processor that same camera can record video in full 1080p HD at a resolution of 1920×1080. An additional front facing camera for all your video conferencing and self portraits comes in at 2 mega pixels. The screen on the new Samsung Galaxy S II is none other than a Super AMOLED Plus screen that measures in at 4.2 inches with a pixel resolution of 480×800. Other details include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth version 3.0 and NFC.

The Samsung Galaxy S II is an amazingly nice phone that takes the ‘standards’ of smart phones to the next level. If you’re here in the states wondering when we will get one, it’s pretty safe to assume the Galaxy S II line will be  here soon, but have multiple personalities depending on carrier, you know, Epic 4G, Fascinate, Mesmerize, Captivate, Vibrant etc etc. Looking to pick up a new Galaxy S II?
