Even More Rumored Samsung Galaxy S2 Specs on Eve of MWC 2011
We’re but a few days away from Mobile World Congress 2011 where we’ll finally be able to put some smart phone rumors to bed. One handset which has seen its fair share of speculation is the Galaxy S2 from Samsung. Heading into the annual event, we’re hearing what may be the last batch of specs, from two separate sources. Hit the break to see what both PocketNow and MobileFun are tossing around.
PocketNow is pointing at few Expansys details for not only the Galaxy S2, but additional Android smart phones. As for the Samsung device, these are “nothing more than speculatively populated” specs, but they do match up well with previous whispers. These guys are saying to look for a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, 512MB RAM, 16GB internal storage, 8-megapixel camera, and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. Rounding out the hardware would be support for NFC, HDMI out, HSPA+, Bluetooth, and GPS. Looking at the processor, we’re somewhat surprised to see a Qualcomm’s 8260 1.2GHz processor with Adreno 205 3D instead of their own Orion chipset.
MobileFun lists mostly similar specifications for the Galaxy S2, but does have a few discrepancies. In this case, we have the dual-core 1.2GHz Samsung Orion processor running things with 1GM RAM. Aside from a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, everything else remains pretty consistent. Android 2.3, Bluetooth 3.0, NFC support, and an “ultra sharp 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen sound about right.
Look for all this to come to a head next week as Samsung unveils the real deal. We’ll be anxiously awaiting and look forward to sharing the news with you guys!
