Samsung Galaxy S 2 picture leaked by Korean news site; 10.1 inch Samsung Galaxy Tab confirmed
Just a day or so before Samsung will officially introduce its new devices at MWC, a Korean news site accidentally leaked a photograph and specs relating to the Samsung Galaxy S 2. According to the site, the Galaxy S 2 will have a bigger 4.3 inch screen. Under the hood, the device will be packing a 1GHz dual-core processor and be powered by Android 2.3. According to the story, the handset will be a bit lighter than the original weighing in at 116 grams. At 8.49mm thick, this very well could be the thinnest smartphone on the market. The picture of the phone shows a revamped UI with larger sized widgets.

In addition to the the handset, the article also confirmed that there will be a 10.1 inch Samsung Galaxy Tab. Like the Galaxy S 2,  the unnamed device will also have a 1GHz dual-core processor. The tablet will be running Android 3.0, and features an 8MP camera that can record video in HD. Music should sound good with surround sound speakers.

The Korean news site most likely had all of this information but it was to be embargoed until after Samsung announced the devices. In this day and age, when an embargo is broken, even by accident, information is spread throughout the internet quickly. The good news is that we won't have that much time before the Korean based manufacturer makes its official announcement.

It does look like the iphone4, hahaha. The only effort they put on the design is the home button, lol.

That's very common. Look for example at the car industry.
Samsung makes many models (other models look very different) and it's only smart to make their big selling phones look like an other big selling phone. Well at least their hardware and OS is far more superior to apple's.

It's nothing bad that it looks like iPhone 4, but Samsung should try to make it's own designs in order to stand out. Still looking forward to it :-)

I do not care if it has dual cores. Give me a phone that is efficient. I love my evo but it feels as though I am tethered to an outlet. Tell me that this phone is more efficient and can go a whole weekend w/out charging and I will buy a sammy product despite all the lazy people's comments. Efficient please. I f it has dual cores, GREAT. If not, great. just make it efficient!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111

This looks very much like an iPhone 4 dude. When I saw this phone, the first thing that came to mind was iPhone 4. Most phones don't do that.

All i hear these days is that every new phone that comes looks like the iphone. What the hell do you guys want a triangle shaped phone or a circled shaped phone.There is only a couple of ways you can design the frame of a smartphone.

Oooooh, I want this bad boy!! I love Samsung electronics. They're reliable and sleek. Can't wait for this phone to launch in the US.
PS: Yes it looks like an iPhone 4. Hopefully they come up with new designs in the future.
