With 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen
Samsung's Galaxy S II smartphone has finally been officially announced and although the previous rumours were quite impressive the official ones sound even better.

The new Galaxy S features a 4.27-inch 800x480 Super AMOLED Plus display paired up with Gorilla Glass, an 8 megapixel 1080p capable camera paired alongside a front-facing 2 megapixel camera, Android Gingerbread with TouchWiz 4.0, Samsung's own 1GHz dual-core processor (most probably the rumoured Exynos) and 1GB of system memory. All these specs are packed in a case that is 8.49mm thick and weighs only 116 grams.

The rest of the specifcations and features include full support for NFC (on some versions), 16/32GB of storage space, microSD card slot, 802.11bng WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, A-GPS, accelerometer, proximity sensor, digital compas and a 1650mAh battery.

According to the first details, the new Galaxy S II should appear in some markets (Europe and Asia) by the end of this month while the price still remains a mystery.

That's the problem with announcing products years and years in advance, all the talk about quad-core chips running at +2GHz just makes this new phone seem 'old'!

Also, i think Android need to start making different version certifications. EG 'This phone is running Android A*' and so games are made to only run smoothly on Android A* speced hardware. I think this is the only way they can compete with the iPhone as atm the iPhone4 might not be the most powerful phone but will have the best games as developed can maximise the engine for the spec. You can't do that on an Android phone because the specs go from the super powerful to the super lame!

Damn, the Galaxy S just came out; already it's being trumpeted. They could have just released this model last year....
Stupid manufactured obsolescence.
