Samsung Galaxy S2 Specifications Leaked

Samsung Galaxy S2’s Specifications Revealed – Dual Core CPU & Super AMOLED Plus

There is no big surprise that specs of several smartphones – upcoming MWC 2011 devices – are being leaked just before 2 days from the Mobile World Congress. The specifications of Samsung Galaxy S2 has been revealed thanks to the British retailer named Expansys, featuring a Dual Core CPU and an impressive Super AMOLED Plus display.

Of course, no pictures, release date or price info has been granted, but I’m sure that in the next one or two days they’ll be available. The specifications are listed below:

  • Display: 4.27 inch, Super AMOLED Plus, capacitive touchscreen,  800 x 480 pixels
  • CPU: Snapdragon 8260 dual core, 1.2GHz, GPU Adreno 205
  • Connectivity: WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, AGPS, microUSB, NFC, 3G
  • Memory: 512MB RAM, 16GB internal storage, microSDHC slot
  • Camera: Back – 8MP, 1080p HD video capture at 30 fps, LED Flash, touch focus; Front – 2MP, Video Calling
  • Other Features: digital compass, gyrometer, accelerometer

There’s no information about the battery life and operating system, but I assume that the Android 2.3 Gingerbread would be the ideal. Additionally, there is a possibility that Android 2.4 will be the running OS, but that’s not sure. I think the Galaxy S2 is a great phone regarding to its specs, if the design and price are going to be decent enough, then the chances for being one of the best smartphones presented at MWC 2011 would be higher than the others.

Google Android 2.4’s Launch Date: April!

According to Pocket-Lint, ViewSonic –  they announced Android tablets and a smartphone at CESclaims that Google Android 2.4 will be released in April along with the ViewPad 4 smartphone being one of the first handsets running it (picture below). Looks like neither HTC, LG, Sony Ericsson or Motorola had the chance to boast with the first 2.4 running device. We believe that the Android 2.4‘s update will be an application sync with the Android 3.0, a major UI change and some bug fixes.

Supposedly, Google’s plans are to “ensure that dual-core apps designed for Honeycomb will be able to work with single-core devices running 2.4.” Let’s hope that the upcoming Android 2.3 devices (Samsung Galaxy S2, Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc) will receive the update soon enough. We hear from the same source that the rumored Android Ice Cream will be most likely only an update to the Android 3.0 for tablets (disappointing, I know).
