Despite the name, the Samsung Galaxy S II TV has almost nothing to do with the company's former flagship device. It is a brand new Android smartphone that comes with a digital TV receiver and a built-in retractable antenna. With support for the ISDB-T broadcasting standard, the handset lets its user enjoy live television, displayed on the 4-inch, 800x480 pixel screen. Further specs include a 1GHz dual-core processor, main camera of 5 megapixels, 4GB of storage, microSD card slot, and a 1500mAh battery. Android 4.2.2 is included out of the box.
Clearly, the Samsung Galaxy S II TV is an interesting device despite its mid-range hardware specifications. Too bad that we might not lay our hands on it anytime soon as we're not expecting this device to be launched globally. Samsung is planning on marketing the Galaxy S II TV in Brazil where it will come in a dual-SIM flavor.
