Samsung i9100 Galaxy S II announced

Samsung’s Galaxy S’s big brother, the Galaxy S2 (i9100), has been unveiled with a much better display and hardware specs. Update: see our full review of the Samsung Galaxy S2 here.


Dual-core 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 proccessor
4.3″ Super AMOLED Plus display @ 480×800 pixels
Gorilla Glass display
1GB RAM
16GB/32GB internal storage
HSDPA 21Mbps, HSUPA 5.76Mbps
WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, DLNA
Bluetooth 3.0 + HS
GPS w/ aGPS support
8MP autofocus camera with LED flash
1080p video recording
2MP front-facing camera for video calls
FM Radio Tuner
Li-Ion 1650mAh battery
Android 2.3 Gingerbread

The Galaxy S2 comes with an optional NFC support (Near-Field Communication) though I don’t see any real-world benefits for it right now. Much like most other big-ass Android smartphones (e.g. HTC Desire HD), the 480×800 pixel resolution on a 4.3″ display could be a bit of a disappointment to some.

Expected release is before end of this quarter though there’s no indicated price yet (my hunch is that it will be within the vicinity of the first Galaxy S which is like 32k to 35k).

    siguro hindi, price would be much lower (sana). dati kasi di pa uso android phones eh. unlike ngayon. ang dami nang competion.

    parang x10 and arc. x10 was 34k when released tas yung arc ngayon is around 29k.
