Europe to get Samsung Galaxy S2 in white

If you live in select Europe countries. you’ll get first dibs on a white Samsung Galaxy S2 by the end of August. Sammy is reported to have made a few key cosmetic changes between the soon to be released white Galaxy S2 and the original black version of the phone. The front plate will be white, along with the home button as well. On top of this the rest of the chassis and the rear of the phone will also be in white too, unlike many of the phones released in the U.S. that have only white backsides.

There still hasn’t been an official announcement from Samsung on this, but a few online retailers have the phone listed for £499.99 (roughly $816), including 20% VAT.  The white Samsung Galaxy S II features the same dual-core 1.2 GHz Samsung Orion processor, 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, 1GB of RAM and 8 megapixel camera as the original.

The Samsung Galaxy S II has been one of the best selling phones in Europe this summer, beating out the iPhone 4 in a few markets with impressive sells numbers of 5 million units sold. So adding a color can’t possibly hurt sales. I’m sure this will leave some sort of hope that the US variants of the GS2 will have a white version as well. People do like different color options, even if they aren’t as common stateside as they are in Europe. Just think, Android users loved having the option of a black and white EVO 4G, when the choice was available.

Samsung has been on a roll lately, and I’m sure it won’t take long for them to shed more light on its US Galaxy S2 release. What GS2 would you buy if you had the choice between black or white?
