Some Galaxy S IIs Will Have Tegra 2 Chipsets

There are tons of tablets on the way packing Nvidia’s Tegra 2 chipset, but only a couple of phones boasting the same beastly dual-core power. Today we learn that the Samsung Galaxy S II will join the Motorola Atrix and the LG Optimus in the prestigious ‘superphone’ category.

Nvidia today confirmed to ITProPortal that Samsung will be using its Tegra 2 chipset in an upcoming version of the Galaxy S II. Announced at MWC, the Galaxy S II actually uses Samsung’s own dual-core processor, but it’s thought that Samsung hasn’t been able to produce enough of the Exynos in time for the launch so Tegra will pick up the slack until production reaches a satisfactory level.

According to ITProPortal, some territories will be getting a Galaxy S II with the Exynos while others will get Tegra guts instead.
