The just-announced Samsung Galaxy S II has been given a price and release date at Expansys (for the unlocked, 16GB version, anyway): Monday, April 18th for 650 pounds, or about $1044 -- although we imagine that price will drop somewhat before it ships as other retailers price-compete for pre-orders. No solid info was available for the 32GB model. Also given definitive release information was the Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo (a.k.a. Halon), which the UK retailer expects on Monday, March 28th for 375 pounds (~$600).
Both models were introduced yesterday at Mobile World Congress, but where the Galaxy S II is a high-end, dual-core flagship for Samsung, the Xperia Neo, as its name suggests, is a single-core, mid-tier handset. Still, it boasts a 1GHz processor, WVGA resolution, and the 2.3 Gingerbread build of Android.
