The four U.S. carriers planning on launching a version of the Samsung Galaxy S have yet to sell one handset in the States, and already there is talk about a follow-up model. Rendered pictures and rumored specs are all the information currently known about the model, known as the i9200 Samsung Galaxy S2. The handset will allegedly sport a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED2 tempered glass display with resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels (if the specs sound shocking, remember that this would not see daylight until 2011), and under the hood would be a 2GHz processor with 1GB RAM and 4GB of ROM. While the i9200 would come with 32GB of internal memory, a microSD slot would accept up to another 32GB of space. The Galaxy S2 would be powered by Android 3.0 and would feature an 8MP camera with full HD recording. The device would have an aluminum casing. And while you might think that some of these specs sound too ambitious to be for real, Motorola recently said that it would have a 2GHz phone ready by the end of 2010. According to the report,the i9200 Samsung Galaxy S2 would launch in Q1 of 2011 at an unsubsidized price of $800 US.

And unless this has a 2000mAh battery along with it, it won't make it through half the day with all that power. What a shame.

Those specs are ridiculous. I mean that in a good and bad way.

eh specs arent that impressive. Id expect a bit more for next years model... maybe a higher camera and a dual core processor right now just looks like a souped up galaxy S

the resolution doesnt need to be any larger than 8 if they can get a proper lens on it that can do good macro shots and a good dual led flash. and whos to say its not dual 1ghz processors?

Looks like the Galaxy S that should of been released instead of the current model. Not a fan of the current Galaxy S.

that is ridiculously good looking! If ATT gets this, they better leave it as it is because that is one of the best looking phones I have seen this year. If I could get BBM on that (only reason I won't give up my 9700) I would be the first to pre order!

true I can message but ask around, one of the main reasons people won't switch from their blackberrys is because of BBM. its a simple and intuitive way to stay connected with your contacts and I am very surprised that other software designers/phone manufacturers haven't made some sort of spinoff of it

Never going to happen...RIM will loose tons of smartphone sales if they start distributing BBM client to other platform. BBM is all they have, period.

the only difference between BBM, AIM, MSN, or plain texting is that BBM is sent as data and not a text, so you dont need a texting plan to BBM for free.

I have heard that there are ways to hack BBM on to your Iphone. the process sounds really complicated and you would need to get a new PIN (not a problem for most people I presume)

This could be my next phone....by then HTC will have a similar phone with AT&T in 2011 - probabley will not be 3.0....

If the specs turns out to be true for $800, I will definitely buy this.

nothing that impressive for it being 2011. Android will have 2ghz prcss and expanded memories by then and already has 4.3 inch screens

The iPhone died with the release of the Motorola Droid... now all of these subsequent Android devices are just adding insult to injury!

imma take a "wait n see" on this one. concidering its just a render and not an actual product. Also concidering its not comming out till Q1 of 2011, which really means Q3 after delays. I cant wait to see the apps that people make when the new class of phones come out.
