SEOUL, South Korea – The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S2 is rumoured to bring the new Super AMOLED Plus screen and a dual-core processor, posing as the new flagship device of the manufacturer.
The original Galaxy S was and continues to be one of the highest-grossing mobile phones for the tech giant, thanks to its high-end specs which took the market by surprise. More than ten million units have been sold since the launch of the smartphone, which involved more than 110 carriers in 100 countries. In the first weekend of sales alone (in South Korea), the handset sold out, which demonstrates the popularity brought by its internal components.
Samsung is looking to have the same kind of success with its successor, the Galaxy S2. Sources indicate that it could feature a larger 4.3″ Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen display, Near-field Communications (NFC), and run on a dual-core processor set-up, most probably Nvidia’s Tegra 2 chip.
At launch the device will carry Google Android 2.3 Gingerbread, without a doubt, seeing that the Seoul and Mountain View companies share a good partnership, and it should also be eligible for future software updates. It would make more sense if Samsung actually turned it into a Bada-powered phone, as it would provide the much-needed boost to Samsung’s in-house operating system and the Samsung Wave line.
The device’s launch should occur during next-month’s Mobile World Congress.
