Samsung Galaxy S successor to be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in February
A popular Korean newspaper has a piece of news in its business section, where Samsung says that the successor of its high-end Galaxy S handset will be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The MWC starts February 14th, so we are sure there will be a love affair between media leaks and the new handset worthy for Valentine's Day beforehand.

The newspaper says that the phone will be dual-core, and will feature updated gyroscope, as well as NFC connectivity chip for contactless payments. Of course, there is only one culprit right now that can take full advantage of these features, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and this is precisely what the next version of the Samsung Galaxy S will be running.

If we combine all the rumors and renders about a Galaxy S sequel, it should be pretty thin, and feature a 4.3" next generation Super AMOLED display, 8MP camera that does full HD video recording, and 1GB/4GB RAM/ROM. This is of course, speculative, but quite plausible if the dual-core Orion chipset pans out. So what's up with all these Tegra 2 chipsets Samsung ordered recently, are they only going to tablets? The idea that we might see a next-gen Samsung Galaxy S with Tegra 2 inside somehow doesn't click with us, so we cross fingers it will be Orion.

You can get Froyo (2.2.1) via Odin 3. Very easy. Do a google search.

Count me out if it doesn't have Honey Comb because atleast i could leave with a major overhaul of an OS for a year and you know that whatever os comes with this phone you are stuck with it. No Upgrades. Dam you Sammy


Fascinate Owner , still waiting on 2.2

The HTC idiots do not get it either. People need a front face camera on their phones. The only HTC Android phone(HTC EVO 4G) is in one CDMA network only.
Anyway LB 2X or B can be a market breaker.

This phone will need to be able to perform miracles to offset sammy's refusal to update phone software. Most Galaxy S owners I know have sworn off buying any new sammy phone cuz they do not keep them up to date with new software

1GB RAM and a 4.3 inch AMOLED screen? What's the resolution? If it is going to be super thin as they say it is going to get about 30 minutes of battery life with those specs.

i have a vibrant, i cant wait for the galaxyS 2. its called XDA. Sammy is making great hardware. They are leaving the phones easy to hack. They suck at software, but XDA developers more than make up the difference.

Been running 2.2 with gingerbread parts for 2 weeks. Nero3 has a great battery life on top of being smooth n responcve. If your stuck on stock, take 20 minutes and fix that.

Its truly a shame Samsung has such Beautiful looking phones with good specs..... Because all of that means nothing if they wont stand behind their products with updates. As cool as these new phones sound, I for one won't be buying one until Samsung can show a little software support

Don't blame the manufacturers for not having Froyo in the U.S. Galaxy s has been running on Froyo for long here in the UK, it's your network providers that are holding you back, Not Samsung!
