Samsung Galaxy S2 and Galaxy Tab 2 Press Info Leaked Early.

Based on the press release photo and specs, it appears as though Samsung has plans to bring the thunder with their upcoming smartphone and tablet release.  The Samsung Galaxy S2 should be making its appearance at MWC on the 14th, but we’ve managed to search the depths of the Internet and scrape up some pre-released info on the device for you.  The specs and photo were leaked from a Korean blog called Paran, which revealed some pretty hefty particulars.  The Galaxy S2 will sport a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus multi-touch screen, a 1 GHz dual-core processor (Exynos?) and Bluetooth 3.0.  The device will also support WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n and come packed with HSPA+ compatibility.  Sounds like a powerhouse of a device to me.  Here’s to hoping Samsung stays on the ball and the device sees some “timely” updates.  Why are you laughing?  Although, it shouldn’t be that much of a deal breaker for you since the device will be released with Gingerbread (2.3).  

It’s also being touted that the device is super thin and light, coming in at 8.49 mm at its thickest point.  It’s weighing in at 116g (4.09 ounces).  If you thought the previous Galaxy S device was thin and light, you’re in for a bit of a surprise.  And of course, no Samsung device is complete without the latest version of TouchWiz.

And as we mentioned before, the blog also leaked info about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, which is purported to have a 10-inch screen and rocking none other than Honeycomb (3.0)  You can also expect to see a 1 GHz dual-core processor, an 8 MP camera and “full HD”, most likely referring to 720p recording (a bit of a translation mix up on the Korean blog).  The device will also come with rich media dual surround sound speakers. We’re sure to see more on the tablet at MWC, so don’t forget to check back with Talk Android.   Overall, these devices are packing some serious punch and will definitely be worthy contenders in the ever expanding Android market.  Let us know what you think in the comments below.

    packed with HSPA+ compatibility

    Justin – no, it’s an International phone..
    Too bad the ugly icons below the weather makes it look like W7, but I guess Samsung still thinks W7 and iOS are the top dogs and try to make their Androids to look like them.

    As an addition, the Samsung Captivate has a six-axis sensor combining both accelerometer and gyroscope which provide smoother gaming

    experience. Its TouchWiz 3.0 UI also supports touchscreen capabilities such as multi-touch pinch, swipe, tap and zoom. Furthermore, the Hummingbird Graphic Processor produces 3D

    graphics as well as 3D sounds.
