Samsung Galaxy S successor to be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in February

Samsung Galaxy S successor might 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.
