Differently colored smartphones have proven popular with consumers. We saw iPhone sales explode when the (long delayed) white iPhone was released, and in the same vein, we have seen Best Buy and other retailers make deals to be the exclusive providers of differently colored Android devices. For those of you who like your smartphones in different colors other than black and grey, Samsung may be beginning a roll-out of a newly colored Galaxy S II. Sweden will be getting a pink Galaxy S II via the carrier Three. Previously, the pink version of the Samsung Galaxy S II had been exclusive to South Korea, but now, the carrier Three will be offering it in Sweden.
Specs-wise, the pink Galaxy S II is still the same phone it has always been. This includes the dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 16GB of onboard memory, 1GB of RAM, the amazing 4.3-inch Super OLED screen and its 8-megapixel camera. The phone ships running Android 2.3 “Gingerbread”, though Samsung has promised to upgrade it to Android 4.0.
The marketing material from Three says that the pink Galaxy S II is exclusive to 3, but that most likely just applies to Sweden, meaning that we could see the pink Android phone rolled out in different countries, on different carriers.
