Samsung will uphold its promise for a powerful dual-core processor powering the Galaxy S II, which debuted at Mobile World Congress last month.

According to Engadget, the second-generation Galaxy S smartphone will run on a 1GHz Tegra 2 dual-core processor. Or at least some models will have the NVIDIA chip.

The Galaxy S II debuted with the Exynos chip onboard, However, Samsung expects a high demand worldwide for this gadget (which is likely given the success of the last generation), so the Tegra 2 processor has been brought in to cover the rest of the supply as apparently there won't be enough Exynos systems to go around.

No word on how these processors will be divided up or where they'll be sent, but there shouldn't be much of a difference (if any) when it comes to performance.
