Initially there were signs that we might get to see the Samsung latest Android flagship – I9100 Galaxy S II hit the shelves in the first quarter of the year, but apparently that didn’t happen. The latest information on the matter suggests that the smartphone will only appear in May.
The news was brought by several online retailers. In UK Clove says it expects to receive the first Galaxy S II units sometime in May. It’s not quoting a specific date, but at least we know the asking price there – £530 (€605) taxes included.
Germany might be a bit luckier as many retailers there claim that they will get the 4.3″ Galaxy S II a few days earlier – on 29 April. Also the pricing in Germany is lower at about €540.
Amazon.de on the other hand lists the target availability date of the device as 2 May and sets its price at the heftier €575.
Well 29 April is just a few weeks away so we’ll soon find out if those estimates are realistic.
