Looks like Samsung is taking a cue from Apple by launching a white version of the Galaxy S II, sometime in September. In fact, Handtec UK has already put the white beauty on pre-order for £503.99 (Rs.36,990 approx.), and say that for the UK, it will be available sometime next month, instead of September. There’s still no word on when it will launch in India, but they’ll be starting with Europe first, followed by other countries, so perhaps a late September launch is possible.
All dressed up
This new edition is just a cosmetic change from the current Galaxy S II and will bear the exact same specifications. Don’t forget that the Korean company will also be launching the Galaxy R around the same time which is a stripped down version of the S II, which should fall in the 25K-30K price bracket.
