TI OMAP-powered Samsung Galaxy S II I9100G pops up quietly
A few months back we told you about the I9101 Galaxy S II, which was based on TI OMAP4430. It leaked on a few screenshots from the Samsung Mobile Singapore's Facebook page.
Today, we found out the device has quietly gone official, taking the I9100G model name. We were contacted by one of our readers, who bought the new version and after some investigation we found out that Samsung have quietly posted it on several of their Asian local websites. There was no press release or anything about it, though.
The Samsung I9100G Galaxy S II is pretty similar(both on looks and specs) to the I9100 Galaxy S II model, it just has a different chipset. The new I9100G is based on the TI OMAP4430 packing a 1.2GHz dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor and PowerVR SGX 540 graphics.
So, the Galaxy S II family has grown with another member - the I9100G. We guess developers won't be too happy that they have to support yet another chipset for the Galaxy S II apps, but that has always been a part of Android.
A hat tip to Raouf Habibi and Hossain Alhaidari for sending this in.
