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.

It looks like at least one Android tablet manufacturer has finally realized that $700-800 slates just won't cut it against the (starting at) $500 iPad 2 in the eyes of most customers. In case you missed our Live Blog, Samsung has finally announced its upcoming Galaxy Tab 8.9 and Galaxy Tab 10.1, both of which will launch with Wi-Fi-only versions - and we finally have an Android tablet that can compete with Apple's slate in one of the most important categories: price. Fear not though, for these tabs are no slouches in the specs department either.
At 8.6mm thick, these two slates (which sport dual-core processors) beat out the 8.8mm iPad 2 in the thinness department by what will likely be an indiscernible .2mm.
