Samsung Shows Off Galaxy S II and Galaxy Tab 10.1

Samsung put all the rumors and leaks to rest today at MWC, officially showing off the Galaxy S II and Galaxy Tab 10.1.

The Galaxy S II is being billed as “the world’s thinnest smartphone” at 8.49 mm, and boasts specs that make me covet my neighbor’s oxen:

  • Samsung dual-core Orion CPU
  • 4.27-inch Super AMOLED Plus display
  • 8 megapixel camera with 1080p video capture
  • Gingerbread 2.3 with TouchWiz 4.0
  • HSPA+ connectivity
  • It is able to incorporate Near Field Communication (NFC) technology “according to market requirement,” which I think means some-but-not-all carriers’ variants of the S II will include it.

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 has, you guessed it, a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 display and will run pure, unadulterated Honeycomb. Other specs include:

  • Dual-core Tegra 2 1 Ghz CPU and GeForce GPU
  • Just 10.9mm thick, weighing in at 599g
  • 8 megapixel rear-facing camera with 1080p video capture; 2 megapixel front-facing camera
  • HSPA+ connectivity.

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is confirmed for Vodaphone in the U.K. No word yet on U.S. carriers.

    I would like a Galaxy Tab with 7″ OLED screen and stock Android 3.0
    Guess I still have to wait 1 more year…

    I would also change my Nexus One for the new Galaxy S II if it was stock Android 2.3
