Since the NYC launch of the Samsung Galaxy SII, we have been hearing reports that the T-Mobile version of the superphone will not have the same Samsung Exynos dual-core 1.2GHz processor as the Sprint and AT&T version. According to a recent tweet from GalaxySsupport, the T-Mo version will be getting a 1.5GHz dual-core snapdragon instead. Now, it is entirely possible that this support person didn't know the real answer and this could turn out to be inaccurate; however, you would think that the official support account for all U.S. Galaxy S devices, might know a thing or two about the phone they are trained to support.

If it turns out to be true, that still leaves the mystery as to why the T-Mo version of the SGS2 comes with a different chip. Perhaps, it isn't a T-Mobile decision, but rather, maybe, Samsung only has a limited run of the Exynos chip, and T-Mobile drew the short end of the stick. Of course, that is just speculation, and it is also entirely possible that the 1.5GHz Snapdragon chip could be better than the Exynos. What do you guys think?
