In those times that we’re talking about PC processor speeds, we normally heard about overclocking and this goes on for gaming enthusiast and professional rigs. However, this time as the dawn of dual-core smartphones have just unfolded the overclocking series continues in the mobile platform.
If you’ve been following the Android developments, we’re sure you already know that Samsung Galaxy S II is claimed to be one of the most special Android smartphones to be dropped in the market. For those who have their memory rusted, the device will features “4.27-inch Super AMOLED Plus display with 800 x 480 resolution, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage, 8 megapixel rear facing camera with 1080p video capture, 2 megapixel front facing camera and runs Google’s latest Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3.”
Who thinks that 1.2GHz isn’t fast enough for a mobile phone? We got one user who thinks the same and go on overclocking the Samsung Galaxy S II to 1.5GHz. Now, be warned that this overclocking practice could mean a toasty S II, so you should always takes the time to follow instructions if you want to risk one.
