Samsung Galaxy S II (S2) Available To Buy Now: Retailer & Price

One of the hottest new smartphones to come out of this year will no doubt be the Samsung Galaxy S II or S2. To say the specs are impressive would be an understatement! Over recent weeks, we have spoken about the handset in more detail including none other than the specs, possible price and release date, comparisons made between others such as the HTC Sensation, Droid Bionic and so on. Along with this we gave you news just a few days ago about the Galaxy S2 speeds being upped from 1.2GHz to 1.5GHz, of course with a little tampering.

Good news has come through today that one retailer “AmazonUK” has now got the phone up for grabs. According to, the new Android smartphone will be available unlocked for a price of £509.99. Some may say this is little on the steep side but its the included features that make this phone so special.

The interest for the new Samsung has been staggering with many of our readers asking when the phone would be released and how they are happy to wait for its launch. If we just revert back to AmazonUK for one moment, we can tell you that the Galaxy S2 page has the handset listed to be in stock on May 21st so just a matter of days to wait.

To refresh your memory, the new phone will feature a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, that dual-core 1.2GHz processor that’s got everybody talking, running on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, whooping 8MP rear camera with 1080p video playback and so on.

Check out the comparison here that we made between the Galaxy S2 and the other handsets listed in the first paragraph. We also mentioned that on, they were listing the phone for £528.00 so actually going with AmazonUK will save you a few pennies. On the other hand, we reported back at the end of April that Phones4U were retailing the Galaxy S2 with a 24 month contract at £35 per month or £499 in exchange for a pay as you go alternative. Another benefit as reported, is that you will be offered a 8GB memory card when signing up. Or check out UK network O2, who were offering the phone for £399 but with strings attached.

Tell us have you been waiting for the new Samsung Galaxy S2? If so are you tempted by AmazonUK’s price, if not where will you be going? Do you like the benefit of a contract or do you prefer a stand alone price?

    I'm waiting for it to come to the states so I can pay $200.00 for it. It will probably look cooler too.
