Ever since its unveiling at MWC, the Samsung Galaxy S II has generated plenty of hype. But with no release date in sight, there's no telling how long it will be before we can get our hands on the device. Fortunately, Ukrainian site gagadget managed to get a preliminary version of the phone, and while it isn't clear how much is finalized, it does give us a good idea of what to expect from Samsung's next flagship handset.
The review starts off by listing the all-important specs, though most have been already been made official:
- Dual-core 1GHz Exynos processor
- 4.3" 800x480 Super AMOLED Plus display
- Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)
- TouchWiz 4.0
- 1GB RAM
- 116 grams
- 8 megapixel camera with LED Flash and 1080p video capture
- 2MP front-facing camera
- 1650mAH battery
The device's build quality is a huge improvement over the original.

If rumors are to be believed, NEC's newest Android phone - the MEDIAS E-04C - will be the world's thinnest smartphone at 7.7mm when it launches this Thursday. It has only been a short time since Sony Ericsson launched the razor-thin Xperia arc and Samsung crowned its Galaxy S II phone as the "world's thinnest smartphone," but at 8.7mm and 8.49mm at their thinnest points, respectively, these phones look positively obese in comparison.
According to Akihabara News, Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo will be announcing its new spring collection later this week, but apparently someone could not wait and leaked photos of NEC's newest offering to Japanese blog Ameba.
