The NVIDIA Tegra 2-powered Samsung I9103 Galaxy S II Is RealBy cheatmaster 10:43 Sun, 11 Jul 2021 Comments
NVIDIA just went ahead and confirmed the existence of a Tegra 2 version of the Samsung Galaxy S II. The Korean company announced that their Super AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) Plus-packing flagship was going to run on the home-brewed Exynos chipset, but supply shortages has forced them to come up with a Tegra 2 alternative.
Update 7 March: We were just contacted by representatives of NVIDIA on the matter. It seems that NVIDIA has not confirmed the model of the device they are working on with Samsung and the whole thing is based on speculations. They did not confirm or deny any fact about the Samsung I9103 Galaxy S II but they insisted correcting the part where NVIDIA allegedly confirms the whole thing.
Samsung I9103 Galaxy S II entered rumorland back in February. It seems that Samsung will be unable to provide enough Exynos chips for all those Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Galaxy S II units it plans to sell. Fortunately NDIVIA doesn't mind helping Samsung out with this one.
The performance of the two SoCs should be similar, so those that discontinue up buying the Tegra 2 Galaxy S II shouldn't be too disappointed. After all some of the main rivals of the Galaxy S II (the Atrix and the Optimus 2X) are already using the Tegra 2 so the I9103 won't be, by any means, inferior to them.
The availability of the two different Galaxy S II versions is yet to be announced. All we know correct now is that the separation will be geographical.
