Samsung Galaxy S2 delayed

Delays have hit the UK release of the Samsung Galaxy S2 smartphone, which originally was set to arrive at some point this month.

Now retailers who were providing pre-orders for the top of the range handset have said that it will not be made available to customers until May.

The specs of the Galaxy S II make it one of the most powerful handsets on the market, with a dual core processor and eye-popping 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Plus display, combined in a very slim, light body.

While its March launch date looks to have slipped by a couple of months, the price also seems to be falling, as retailers initially suggested it would breach the £600 mark for the SIM free edition, but it is now being offered for about £530.

Of course network providers will jump onboard to subsidise the smartphone and ensure that a wider audience can enjoy the Samsung Galaxy S II without investing so much cash upfront.

The delay could allow rival manufacturers to get more of a foothold as a rash of dual-core smartphones are set to launch in the interim and snap up market share.
