Samsung’s most powerful smartphone yet is now available in white in Ireland

Samsung has announced that its award winning handset the Galaxy S II will now be available in classic white in retailers across Ireland from 1st October 2011.

We always want to provide consumers with a wide range of stylishly designed handsets and are delighted to now be able to offer consumers the choice of Ireland’s leading Android smartphone in black or white.”

Slim (8.49mm) and lightweight (116g) Samsung’s Galaxy S II White runs on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and is super-fast thanks to its dual-core 1.2GHz processor. The device’s exceptionally bright screen makes it perfect for watching movies and TV or playing games and looking at apps, with its ground-breaking ‘organic’ LED screen technology, Super AMOLED Plus.

The Galaxy S II is built for multi-tasking, its dual-core processor makes switching between applications and loading web pages such as Google, Yahoo and YouTube quick, whilst its superior 3D hardware means games and videos can be loaded and played with ease. What is more, there is immediate access to content and services such as catch up TV and movie downloads, thanks to super-fast connectivity and WiFi, with speeds up to 21Mbps which provides increased download speeds, and Bluetooth 3.0+HS which reduces data transfer times significantly.

The Galaxy S II White is available from Free on bill pay, exclusively from the Carphone Warehouse from 1st October 2011.
