Samsung Galaxy S II in pink: the phone you never knew you wanted

Samsung Galaxy S II in pink: the phone you never knew you wantedThe world is finally complete: Samsung has revealed the Galaxy S II smartphone in pink, providing a third alternative for those who just can't get on with the more mundane black or white.

Quite why Samsung has chosen to bring out the third colour option is beyond us, but we'll have to admire it from a distance for now, as it's only destined for Samsung's home turf of Korea at this stage.

The Android superstar has been many people's number one handset of 2011, and its appeal should extend a bit further next year too given that Samsung has now confirmed a bit of Ice Cream Sandwich goodness in its future.

Back to the pink version, though, and we're not altogether sure the concept works visually, and find it a bit strange that Samsung would release a third colour variant closer to the end of the S II's life cycle than the beginning.

But hey ho, it's a free world.

It adds a feminine twist to an otherwise very male oriented phone. All the usual emphasis on power and speed don't appeal to girls (usually), in my experience.

If Samsung think they'll sell enough to warrant a whole new colour, good for them :).

Within the next 12 years??

I might get my daughter one if they come to the UK, her Samsung Jet is...well...like a Samsung Jet really, 'nuff said :|.

It's a better "girly", phone than the HTC Rhyme, which is just a Desire S that's purple.

no such thing as a 'girly' phone... most girls see them and feel insulted tbh...

On the other hand, they need some way to make the S2 appeal more to girls, I mean, it's all about power with the normal S2 even in the advertising campaign, which (mosr), girls just don't care about.

i know... just look at jan and his symbian phones...

still i recon if they wanted different colours why not go for blues etc...

Nice try Samsung.

Even in a garish hue, you can't camouflage the fact it's a cheap iPhone knockoff.

Matt, "feminist" twist? You mean "feminine?!
Most feminists I know aren't too fond on the pink-brainwashy barbification.

Looks better than the white version to me.

I wrote feminine, didn't I? Either that or you moderated my comment to say feminine. If you did, it was my predictive text's fault :p.

Field,
Agree, the white one looks positively cheap.
Only a very few phones look good in white. Ahem...
Can't think of one right now.

iPhone 4/4S & BB Bold 9900, look beautiful in white. Though not so much when the screens are off, that big black rectangle on all white phones looks a bit...odd...IMO.

Yes... Nokia E71 in white was nice. And the Vodafone Smart :D
