Samsung tends to come up with a bunch of handsets that have variations, and the Samsung Galaxy S2 is no exception. So far, there are already 3 known models – the GT-I9100, GT-I9103, and the GT-I9101. What we will look at in closer detail today would be the one in the middle, the I9103, where it has paid a visit to the FCC, so we have combed through such information in order to see what else has come up with the phone.
What is different with the I9103 compared to the other two variants would be its ability to run NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 platform in lieu of the Samsung Exynos chip. It is still too early in the game to call a winner between the two, since initial benchmarks have failed to make a stark difference, so perhaps the move behind multiple chipsets is more due to cost or availability issues, instead of just pure performance.
When the I9100 went through the FCC’s baptism of fire earlier this March, it is known then that it will ship with AT&T-compatible bands. As for the I9103, it sports similar WCDMA frequencies, so we are still up in arms as to just which carrier it will appear on. What do you think?
