Samsung Galaxy S2 full specifications leak
Source : GSM Areana
UK online retailer Expansys posted today the complete specifications of the next generation Samsung Galaxy S phone. While the specs sheet looks plausible enough, nobody really knows whether they’ll turn out to be true or at MWC or Sammy will reveal a Galaxy S2 with a totally different hardware.
Many of the rumors about Samsung putting a dual-core processor in the Galaxy S2 rendered true, but according to Expansys it won’t be Sammy’s dual-core 1Ghz “Orion” processor, based on the ARM Cortex A9 architecture. Instead, under the hood the Galaxy S2 will feature a Qualcomm 8260 SoC with dual-core Snapdragon CPU, clocked at 1.2Ghz, which is not that bad of an alternative (though we find it hard to believe).
The main party piece of the Samsung Galaxy S will be its Super AMOLED Plus capacitive touchscreen. It’s slightly larger than the original Galaxy S and measures at 4.27-inches with a WVGA resolution of 800x480 pixels.
At the back there’s an 8MP auto-focus camera with LED flash and digital zoom, capable of 1080p HD video recording and at the front there’s a 2MP one for video calling. As far as RAM is concerned, we are a bit disappointed, as Expansys suggests it’s going to be the same as the Galaxy S - 512MB.
The storage options are the same as well – 16GB with a support for a microSD card support. The usual Wi-Fi b/g/n/, Bluetooth 3.0, A-GPS, and microUSB port are present, as well. Near Field Communications chip is also confirmed.
Operating system information doesn't appear anywhere in the specs, but we are certain it's going to be Android 2.3 Gingerbread. In any case, we are going to see for ourselves at MWC in 2 days whether these details are the real deal.
Here's the full specifications list of the Samsung Galaxy S2, as it appeared on Expansys.

The Samsung Galaxy S2 is out in the open a day early - specs, photo, the whole shebang. A Korean website slipped up and we now know everything about the next-gen droid, plus info on the Galaxy Tab 2, which reportedly will be 10-inch this time around.
The Samsung Galaxy S2 has grown a bigger screen, another core and somehow gotten thinner in spite of all that. The phone runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread on a 1GHz dual-core processor.
The Galaxy S2 screen has a 4.3” diagonal. The phone is just 8.49mm thick and weighs 116 grams. The photo on the left also leaked and the S2 looks just like we expected it to.
The connectivity specs of the Samsung Galaxy S2 are very curious - “4G” (actually HSPA+), Wi-Fi a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0+HS. The 802.11a standard uses the 5GHz band rather than the more common 2.4GHz so perhaps the WLAN radio of the Galaxy S2 will be dual-band for the other protocols too. There's also Bluetooth 3.0+HS, which should support 24Mbps data transfers (unlike the non-HS BT3.0, which as we found brings no speed improvement at all).
As for the tablet, it’s the Galaxy Tab successor - a 10.1” Honeycomb tablet, with dual-core 1GHz CPU, 8MP camera with FullHD video capture and stereo speakers.
One final bit of info was in the leaked article - version 2.0 of Samsung’s Bada OS is getting launched at the MWC as well.
