Pink Galaxy S II arrives week starting 13th February - just in time for Valentines

The pink Galaxy S II at launch event in Korea

Originally announced in November last year but available only in South Korea at the time, the pink version of Samsung's incredibly popular Galaxy S II arrives here in the UK, just in time for Valentines celebrations.

We've had it confirmed by Samsung that we will be receiving stock of the more feminine-shaded smartphone in the week commencing the 13th of February, with a price of around £439.99.

This pink variant is officially called 'rose' in colour, but we've rarely seen a rose quite as vibrantly pink as pictures indicate the new Galaxy S II to be. Nethertheless we're sure this new addition to the S II range will prove as hugely popular as the white and original black models.

Nothing inside has changed; you still get the same boatload of premium specs, including the glorious 4.27 inch Super AMOLED Plus screen, a 1.2GHz dual-core flavoured processor, an 8MP camera, 16GB of internal storage plus microSD card slot, and the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) software. All of which helped make the Galaxy S II our biggest selling phone of 2011. So the change is only cosmetic, but may be enough to tempt you if you want your mobile companion to be a little less butch in tone. Or if you're stuck for a Valentine's present for the tech mad lady in your life.
