SEOUL, South Korea – A schedule detailing the launch plan of the Samsung Galaxy S2 and Tab2 has leaked ahead of next month’s Mobile World Congress.
The MWC is certainly the most important telecommunications conference in the world. It is held annually in Barcelona, and receives live coverage from PhoneReport. It is an ideal time for companies to present successors to well-received handsets, and such is case of Samsung, who plans to showcase the upgrade to the current Samsung Galaxy S – an advanced high-end smartphone, based on Google Android, with the exclusive 4″ Super AMOLED touchscreen, that sold over 10 million units worldwide. The Samsung Galaxy Tab2 should also be present, and may be more of a direct competitor to the 10″-sized iPad tablet, with better features and at a cheaper price point.
The launches are scheduled for the 13th of February, MWC eve, a common date chosen by companies in order to avoid the confusion during the congress. Last year both Sony Ericsson and Samsung conducted press conferences on eve of the event at the same exact time, which was not the best solution for customers who wish to view the product launches live.
It’s not very clear how the Galaxy S will be improved, but sources suggest that it will inaugurate the Super AMOLED Plus screen technology on a 4.3″ large display, NFC technology, a dual-core processor and Google Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
