Samsung Galaxy S II to either use a Tegra 2 SoC or Exynos 4210 depending on region. Enter the Samsung GT-i9103

As noted on the official Samsung Galaxy S II specs sheet the Samsung application processor powering the device “May not be applicable in some regions”. This essentially means that there are going to be other versions of the device sold in some regions with an SoC other than the Exynos 4210. Turns out that it will most probably be the Samsung GT-i9103 which is powered by nVidia’s Tegra 2 ( it just showed up in the GLBenchmark database).


Thankfully for Samsung the Tegra 2 has similar performance to the Exynos 4210 (and even better in some cases thanks to its more mature drivers) so the end user probably won’t even see the difference at first. Also note that the Super AMOLED Plus display will also not be available on all Galaxy S II handsets (it will probably be replaced by Samsung’s Super Clear LCD just like on the European Nexus S and some versions of the Galaxy S).

Check out my 7 minutes ling video of the regular GT-i9100 powered by the Exynos 4210 here.
