Chris Ziegler of Engadget scored his second Samsung exclusive of the day with new images of a flagship Gingerbread phone which is slated for the first half of 2011. This new Samsung superphone is said to feature Gingerbread (Android 2.3), 1.2 GHz processor, 4.3-4.5 inch “sAMOLED2″ display, 16 GB memory, 8 megapixel camera with flash (1080p record), and support for HSPA+.
We don’t know much about the “sAMOLED2″, but the possible 4.5 inch size matches the new flexible AMOLED displays that Samsung unveiled this week.
Leaked product slides promote a revolutionary, ultra-sleek design, but no measurements are provided on how thin it might be. The first half flagship phone is rumored for a February unveiling, which could mean we see it at Mobile World Congress.
The timing of this leak is a little odd because Samsung is expected to release their Nexus S phone before Christmas, but we always know something faster is right around the corner. It kind of reminds me when Samsung finally announced the Galaxy Tab at IFA and then said they were working on a Honeycomb tablet at the press conference that followed.
After seeing the leaked Nexus S photos and now this new flagship phone, which do you prefer? Will you make the jump to Android 2.3 this year and grab the Nexus S, or hold out till the first half of next year for the chance at this newer ultra-sleek design?
