In France, the Samsung Galaxy S II will arrive in late May / early June. The announcement regarding availability at the beginning of May was wrong, though it came from an official of Samsung France.
The Samsung Galaxy S II is on sale for a few days in South Korea and the UK yesterday. It was already available via Phones4U since April 27, but was exceptional. This version of the phone has sparked debate since it does not physically have the NFC chip. That does not mean it will be the same in France, but the first models offered by Expansys are imported from the UK. Therefore, they do not benefit.
Regarding the date of availability French, at MWC, the manufacturer had indicated the month of June. But in a video generation Teknologik, vice president of Samsung France spoke of availability for the beginning of May. Unfortunately, we still have no official statement and it seems unlikely that period.
Our colleague in GPS And Co had new information from Samsung France. The output of the phone is pushed to the end, in the best, if not for the month of June. It is not clear why this delay, but one would hope whether the integration of the NFC chip.
Also according to the information of our colleague, the phone should be sold without subscription for € 599. It is available from all operators Bouygues Telecom, Orange, SFR and Virgin Mobile.
This news will delight the other brands that will benefit from the absence of the phone on the market. This will mainly LG Optimus 2X, HTC Sensation (May 12 SFR) and the Motorola Atrix (mid-May in several operators).
