T-Mobile Galaxy S II to have a 1.5Ghz dual-core Qualcomm CPU

Mystery solved then – the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II was just confirmed to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset, featuring a 1.5 GHz dual-core Scorpion processor. The news came from the Galaxy S support Twitter account, so the smart money is on it turning out true.

The chipset that powers the T-Mobile-bound Samsung Galaxy S II has been identified as Qualcomm APQ8060. That’s the board that you can find inside the HP TouchPad, except that this time its dual-core CPU is clocked much higher. Its main advantage over the Samsung Exynos platform is the faster network data – it allows network downloads with up to 42 Mbps, compared to half of that on the Exynos.

The Exynos on the other hand has an edge in performance – the speedier CPU clock of the Snapdragon inside the T-Mobile Galaxy S II will probably negate the advantage of the Cortex-A9 cores, but the Adreno 220 GPU isn’t quite a match for the Mali-400MP.

Then again, just about every game should still be smooth on the Qualcomm-powered Galaxy S II, so maybe it’s a fair trade. We all know how important speedy network connection is, right?
