Samsung Galaxy S2 to feature Super AMOLED Plus, NFC and Gingerbread

Samsung Galaxy S2 to feature Super AMOLED Plus, NFC and Gingerbread
Is this the Samsung Galaxy S2?

Is this the Samsung Galaxy S2?

Back last July, we reported that Samsung was working on a sequel to the Galaxy S even before one unit of the original model was sold in the U.S. Now that the device has proven itself by becoming a big seller, this is a more realistic time to consider a follow up to the device. A Korean newspaper, etnews, now says that the handset in question will look exactly like what we saw on this photo about 6 months ago.

While the Korean paper says that the Galaxy S2 name is not confirmed, it does claim that the phone will feature a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display with a dual-core processor under the hood. Similar to the Nexus S, the Galaxy S2 will have an NFC chip. As for the Android build, it will be Gingerbread running the show. The device is rumored to be introduced at next month's MWC show in Barcelona. We earlier told you that Samsung aims to triple its smartphone sales in 2011. A successful sequel to the Galaxy S would go a long way to reaching that goal.

Speaking of MWC, we will be there next month providing you with hands-on reports of the handsets and tablets that you have been waiting to know more about!

I don't think it will sell as many (not even close) as the current Galaxy S phones with a 4.3inch screen. The 4 inch screen that the current GS has is at the edge of mobility. I find it very hard to consider a 4.3 inch screen device a "mobile/portable" device. What do you think about that?

By the looks of things, though, this will probably be about the same size as the Galaxy S because of a smaller bezel and thinner design. Also, I have small hands yet I don't find 4 inches on the edge of mobility. 4.3 inches maybe, but not 4.

But I bet it still does not feature the number one required hardware requirement for a touchscreen phone, a LED Notification light, so for me I dont care that else the hardware/software is. Without a led notification light then no thatk you.

well, I would defenatly buy THAT! Its huge. and for the sammy's support, I never really wanted it. As long as we have XDA, I dont care what the company does on the software part...

If you have time to play, try every custom rom, go back, restore backup, etc... Normal users need decent support, want modern devices that just work as advertised.

SE Arc has a better design.......
