Samsung Galaxy S2 possible specs leak out
Possible hardware details for the Samsung Galaxy S2 may have emerged from a detailed Korean posting. Believed to be nicknamed the Seine, the 4.3-inch phone would center on a still 1GHz but now dual-core processor known as the Orion. Noctunews' data would also give 1GB of RAM, twice as much as before, and move up to an eight-megapixel camera that could record 1080p video.
The full-touch phone would be one of the few flagship Android 2.3 phones unveiled so far and, if correct, would have NFC much like on Samsung's own Nexus S. At 800x480, the screen wouldn't gain any resolution, but it would get clearer through the Super AMOLED Plus used in the Infuse 4G (pictured). A larger screen size would help slim down the device to under 9mm, or just over a third of an inch thick.
Such claims might clash with those of the Stealth V believed to represent the S2; it would have a 1.2GHz single-core chip instead. Most of the specs nonetheless align, and the at first contradictory 4.3- and 4.5-inch screen sizes mentioned in a specs sheet suggest that the Galaxy S2 and Infuse 4G are very closely related.
Samsung will show the Galaxy S replacement at an event just before Mobile World Congress on February 13. [via CareAce]
