Samsung Says: “Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., today announces that following the success of the original Galaxy S II released in May this year, the popular handset will now also be available in white in the UK from the 1st September 2011. The sleek and stylish Galaxy S II is the first handset to offer Samsung’s Super AMOLED Plus screen technology, the largest, brightest and most colourful screen available in Samsung’s portfolio of devices.”
