The Galaxy S II, a powerhouse of an Android phone as it already was, has been pushed to 1.5Ghz! That’s one mean overclock considering the fact that the phone runs a dual-core processor. The overclock is apparently stable and the difference is even visible in everyday usage, not just in benchmarks. More on how to overclock your Galaxy S II after the jump!
The overclock has been made possible thanks to XDA-Developers forum member coolbho3000 who has basically put together an overclocked kernel, that once flashed to your phone, would allow you to overclock the device.
According to the developer, the voltage has been left at a steady 1375mV which is enough for a stable overclock at 1.5Ghz. Now let’s move onto how you can overclock the Galaxy S II.
