Samsung Galaxy S II To Ship With Nvidia Tegra 2 Chipset In Some Regions
By on March 4th, 2011

When Samsung announced the hotly anticipated Galaxy S II at the MWC 2011, the company did not mention anything about a Tegra 2 version of the device. However, soon after the announcements, rumors started popping up on the Internet that the Galaxy S II will come in two variants one with Samsung’s own Exnynos chip, and another one based on Nvidia’s Tegra 2 chipset.

Now, an Nvidia spokesperson has confirmed to ITProPortal, that the Galaxy S II will indeed come in two flavors. Samsung will be shipping the Nvidia Tegra 2 version in certain regions of the world.

The reason cited behind this move from Samsung is because the company won’t be able to produce enough Exynos chips to fulfill the supply.

At the moment, it is unknown as to which countries or regions of the world will get the Tegra 2 based Galaxy S II handsets. The performance of these 2 SOCs should be similar, so users need not worry about which version they buy.

It may be also possible that Samsung may not ship the Galaxy S II with the Super AMOLED Plus screen in some regions.
