Reading this recent review of the international GalaxyS2;
AnandTech - Samsung Galaxy S 2 (International) Review - The Best, Redefined


WiFi, GPS

The SGS2 has both 2.4 and 5 GHz WiFi connectivity courtesy of Broadcom?s newest combo chip, the BCM4330. It is the logical successor to BCM4329, which we saw adopted darn-well almost universally in the previous generation, from the iPhone 4 to SGS1. BCM4330 still is a single spatial stream combo solution, but what?s different is that alongside Bluetooth 4.0+HS support is an on-chip power amp for 5 GHz WLAN in addition to last gen?s 2.4 GHz

That puts SGS2 in an incredibly small list of smartphones that include 5 GHz WLAN support, which is critical going forwards as the 2.4 GHz ISM band gets even more crowded.


Are we getting the BCM4330 chip ?

Knowing if we have the new updated radio is a deal breaker for me. If it is the same as the international S2, then great I am on board. But if we get the old WiFi modem from the S1 I will pass.

Any official word on this ?

Since you asked this question in two places, I'm answering it in two places. I figured it would probably get better visibility here in it's own thread anways :D


According to the wifi certification, the E4GT also has 5ghz WLAN support. Because of this, I would assume it uses the same wifi radio as the International version. Here are links to wifi certification reports, which includes the International Galaxy SII, the Epic 4G Touch, and the Motorola Photon for comparison purposes. You'll notice the Photon does not have a "1" under 5ghz, while the two Galaxy SIIs do.
