[Updated] Samsung to stuff nVidia Tegra 2 processor into some Galaxy S II phones

Endgadget have confirmed via their "own sources" that Samsung will be inserting an nVidia Tegra 2 processor into some of the new Galaxy S II. The next iteration to the Galaxy S was announced with Samsung's own dual-core processor called the Exynos at the Mobile World Congress 2011.

Samsung is expecting a high demand for the Galaxy S II, hence their decision to put some of those phones with nVidia's version of a dual-core mobile processor might seem logical. Samsung might not be able to keep up with the demand of the phone and falling short of producing the Exynos might cause delays and whatnots. The Tegra 2 chipset from nVidia have the same processing power as Samsung's Exynos with both having 1GHz of clockspeed and Tegra 2 offers a "comparable performance".
"The decision as to which part you'll get in your next Samsung smartphone will depend on which territory you're in, with Americans and Brits likely to get first bite at the Exynos cherry." - Endgadget
Update: Samsung Hub have gotten some information from nVidia confirming that the Samsung Galaxy S II will get the nVidia Tegra 2 processor.

It is still unsure what regions will get the nVidia powered Galaxy S II. We will have to wait until Samsung makes an official statement about this.
