Samsung Galaxy S II Price and Release Date Shows up at British Electronic Store

Love it or hate it, but the suggested price of Samsung Galaxy S II is really plug a deep hole in your wallet., a UK online retailer who has had a history of listing out the device’s price way earlier than others, have put the £650  price tag on a supposedly without-contract, totally unlocked Galaxy S2. We know S2 is one beast of a phone with Android 2.3 pre-installed, 4.3 inch screen, just 8.5 mm of thickness (but it’s still not the world’s slimmest phone) and new 1 GHz dual-core Samsung Exonys processor, but the price tag definitely makes it pretty unreachable.

You know, £650 is no less than $1050 and in Euros, it’s €760. That’s gross — after all, it’s still a phone! We really think the actual price will be more in line with what other phones are available at, think of something in the range of 500-600 dollars for a without contract deal and around $200-250 for a phone signed with 2 year contract.

Apart from the price, the other interesting titbit of the listing was the release date — mentioned as March 31. It’s very much possible for the Sammy to meet that date, but we would like to hear it from the Korean outfit itself, with a word on launch date for other markets too — US, Canada, Asia, etc. Samsung’s already got a very vast and efficient marketing and distribution system in place — which helped the company sell whopping 10 million units of Galaxy S — so we wouldn’t be surprised to see the Galaxy S II release by the end of March, everywhere except US, where carriers take their own time, which isn’t less.

So, what’s your view about the pricing and the release date, hmm?
