We've grown used to Samsung offering its smartphones in white just a few months after the phone's initial launch. However, with love in the air, the company is adding another rather unexpected shade to the Galaxy SII's colour swatch: Pink.
Marketed as a special Valentine's Day phone, the pink Galaxy SII actually hit Korea in November of last year. It's UK launch was confirmed back in January, and the phone has been available for preorder for a few weeks now. Pocket-Lint reports that it has officially arrived at Carphone Warehouse and is available to purchase right away. We've also confirmed that the phone is now available (again, with a contract) through Phones4U.
Price-wise, we can only offer you details on the on-contract deals through O2, Orange, T-Mobile, and Vodafone, as it doesn't seem to be available SIM-free. If your faith in your relationship extends past the 24-month mark you can expect to pay anywhere between £0 and £150 for the phone up front. This, of course, depends on the monthly contract you choose.
Under that glossy pink exterior you'll find the same guts that power the white or black Galaxy SII: A dual-core 1.2Ghz CPU, 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Gorilla Glass display, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of flash storage (up to 32GB via MicroSD), 8-megapixel camera capable of recording full HD, 2-megapixel front-facing affair for video chat, Bluetooth 3.0, USB 2.0, WiFi, and NFC support.
