Today we have our first clear look at the Galaxy S 2 smartphone's specifications. Samfirmware.com spoke with some "insiders" who revealed that the company is testing two different display form-factors: 4.3" and 4.5". Samsung is also testing two different versions of the dual-core Orion processor, 1 GHz and 1.2 GHz.
It's the season for smartphone teasers; LG has been working the Optimus 3D angle, and Samsung has been making a song & dance about the Galaxy S2, the dual-core successor to their wildly popular Galaxy S family. All in the run up to MWC 2011 of course, and in the excitement it's easy to make a mistake: like, oh, forgetting to double-blur your Galaxy S2 pre-advert and mask out the device itself.
Samsung has announced its 2010 financial figures, and there are strong results for the company's mobile business. Mobile device sales in Q4 2010 topped 80.7m, up 17-percent compared to Q4 2009, with 280m sales for the whole of 2010. Samsung confirms that a dual-core Galaxy S replacement with a Super AMOLED Plus display (believed to be the Samsung Galaxy S2, debuting at MWC 2011 next month) will launch in the first half of 2011, while also announcing that it "will complement its Galaxy Tab with a range of devices to optimally meet various user needs."
Earlier this month we reported that Samsung had begun to tout the Galaxy S2- sequel to the wildly successful Galaxy S. Now a leaked slide from Samsung's 2011 MWC plan reveals both the Galaxy S 2 and the Tab 2.
Samsung isn't exactly holding back when it comes to teasing what it has for MWC 2011 next month, with its "Evolution is Fate" campaign promising a replacement for the best-selling Galaxy S, and spec tidbits continue to leak out of Korea ahead of the big reveal. According to Nocut News, the Samsung Galaxy S2 - internally known as the Samsung Seine - will use the company's new 1GHz Orion processor, based on dual ARM Cortex A9 cores, paired with an 8-megapixel camera and Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
Apple blast! There's a big fat update in store for all you iDevice owners, that being iOS 4.2 - if you've not already got it, just wait a little bit longer, according to most, this release will be available at around 10AM PST. Then, our little pal Android hits of catwalk in promotion of that sassy Giorgio Armani Samsung Galaxy S. Next, some radical columns for epic discussion: "Why my Nintendo Wii has been collecting dust" and "Why 2014 Will Not Be Like 1984" on the future of Apple's closed system and survival in the face of competing openness. Finally, just incase you missed it, our "Week with" review series of NOOKcolor started on Saturday night! First up, Hardware! All this and MORE on SlashGear Moring Wrap-up!
