With the meteoric rise of the smartphone, especially the iPhone and the BlackBerry it took a special phone from their competitors to match them. Samsung and Android did just that with the Galaxy S. A super fast, super bright smartphone that did pretty much everything an iPhone can do and more yet still keep a lower price and certainly better longevity before Samsung decide to take it to the next level. Well now we have it’s sequel on its way, the Galaxy S II.
So what’s it got?
- 1GHz Dual-Core processor
- 4.3” Super AMOLED screen
- 8MP Rear Facing Camera
- Full 1080pHD recording
- 2MP Front Facing Camera
- Super sleek design (8.49mm thick and weighs just 116g)
- 16GB or 32GB models
- HDMI out
- 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, AGPS
So the specs look pretty decent and we all know that Samsung have got better and better at their smartphones and Android is now the most popular OS so when can we get the next generation of Galaxy phone? There’s several conflicting sources about on the internet at the moment. Expansys had just a price of £649.99 where as online retailer Clove had it down at £612 with a March release. Then Play.com came along and is allowing people to pre-order it at £599.99 with a May 6th shipping date. Who’s right?? Personally I’d go with play.com but certainly if you’re interested keep checking.
