Samsung has confirmed to Pocket-lint that it will be launching it's flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S II, on the 1 May in the UK.

The news means that the smartphone misses Samsung's original planned April release, albeit by a day.

As we reported last week the new phone will sport a 1.2GHz processor and run Android 2.3.

The Galaxy S II is the first handset to offer Samsung’s Super AMOLED Plus screen technology, the largest, brightest and most colourful screen available in Samsung’s portfolio of devices.
