Galaxy S II overclocked to 1.5GHz

Of all the Android devices coming out any time soon, the Samsung Galaxy S II is perhaps the most anticipated. According to all the reviews made available so far, the screen is gorgeous, it feels good in your hand, and it’s the fastest Android handset money can possibly buy. So what do you think hackers and modders want to do once they finally get their hands on it? Why, make it faster, of course.

The developer behind SetCPU, coolbho3000, has taken the time to craft a kernel that pushes the GSII to 1.5GHz and stable. 2.0 GHz has been reached, but 1.5 is the highest usable frequency so far. And just how well does 1.5GHz work? Other devices have been pushed higher, sure, but a Quadrant run shows the OCed GSII scoring a massive 4062.

If you happen to be one of the lucky souls who has a Galaxy S II, and you want to give the overclock a shot, visit the [MOD] Galaxy S II Overclocked to 1.5GHz: 4000+ in Quadrant! thread over on XDA where you’ll find all the necessary info.
