Samsung Galaxy S II Tegra 2 variant?

The Samsung Galaxy S II was, of course, unveiled at MWC last weekend.

The Gingerbread touting S II comes with a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Plus display, an 8 megapixel camera (capable of full HD), bluetooth, wi-fi and the option of 16 or 32GB of memory.

All this alongside a dual-core 1GHz processor, one of Samsung’s own Exynos system-on-a-chips. However, it seems that according to Anandtech (via T3), Samsung and Nvidia also quietly let slip that they were working on a joint “superphone”.

The website speculatively put two and two together, given that Samsung has listed its own processor as not being used in all regions in the S II, guessing that a Tegra 2 replacement may be on the cards for some markets.

Samsung hasn’t said anything yet, and has kept this all on the sly, to avoid confusing punters at the moment, which sounds like a fair enough possibility.

As usual with these sort of rumours, time will tell. The S II is expected to be available as soon as next week in some parts of Europe.
