Korean news site leaks Samsung Galaxy S 2 image and specs

3 years ago 70

We still have about a day before Samsung is scheduled to unveil their new devices at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, but that has not stopped a Korean news site from accidentally publishing a news article, revealing an image and detailed specs on the Samsung Galaxy S 2. The image clearly shows a revamped UI with much larger widgets (which look eerily similar to the Live Tiles from Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7) and a front-facing-camera.

As for specs, the Samsung Galaxy S 2 is said to feature a 4.3 inch display, 1 GHz dual-core processor, HSPA+, 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, and will be powered by Android 2.3. The Samsung Galaxy S 2 will be slightly lighter than the original, weighing in at 116 grams and may also be the worlds thinnest handset at 8.49mm thick.

The news article also confirms the 10.1 inch Galaxy Tab followup which we reported on yesterday. The Honeycomb tablet will have a 1GHz dual-core processor, surround sound speakers, and an 8 megapixel camera capable of recording video in full HD.

Many of you are still disappointed with how slow Samsung has been rolling out Android updates to the original Galaxy S, but that hasn’t had any apparent effect of Samsung’s sales numbers and the popularity of the Galaxy S line. Let’s hope this time around Samsung has a much better plan in place to deliver timely updates to their customers.

Bonus video: Samsung just uploaded another Galaxy S II teaser.
