Canadian carrier Telus has officially announced that the Samsung Galaxy S II X smartphone, which is a Galaxy S II variant, will be available from them on October 28. The device comes with a price tag of $99 on a three-year contract.

The Telus Galaxy S II X is similar to T-Mobile USA’s Galaxy S II variant. Compared with other Galaxy S II’s on the market, these two models come equipped with a Qualcomm dual-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon CPU instead of Samsung’s 1.2 GHz dual-core Exynos processor.

 

 

According to some speculations, this change of chipsets is mainly for supporting the networks.

The Snapdragon chipsets are capable of supporting the fast 42 Mbps HSPA+ networks of Telus and T-Mobile USA. But the Exynos chips don’t reach the theoretical 42 Mbps speeds.

The Galaxy S II X for Telus features a 4.5-inch super AMOLED plus touchscreen display and runs the Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS.

It comes with an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and 4X digital zoom. The camera allows you to record 1080p HD videos. It also comes with a 2 MP front-facing camera for all your video chatting needs.
