PostSubject: Samsung i9100 Galaxy S II in the flesh!   Sun Apr 10, 2011 1:19 am

Whatís thinner, lighter and twice as powerful as the Galaxy S? Well, itís the Galaxy S II
(GT-i9100) of course and weíve got one of them babies right here
(though itís still an engineering unit and not the final release).

Having owned the first Samsung Galaxy S, I was pretty excited how
much improvements this second generation Galaxy S would look like and

Itís definitely thinner, though not by much, despite having a larger 4.3-inch screen. Itís much snappier too, if I might add.

Samsung definitely made good effort in upgrading their Galaxy smarpthone. Just look at these specs.

Samsung i9100 Galaxy S II specs:
4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus @ 480◊800 pixels
Gorilla Glass display
Dual-core 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A9 proccessor
Mali-400MP GPU, Orion chipset
16GB and 32GB internal storage
up to 32GB via microSD
HSDPA 21 Mbps, HSUPA 5.76 Mbps
Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, DLNA, WiFi Direct, WiFi hotspot
8MP autofocus camera w/ LED Flash
Stereo FM radio with RDS
GPS with aGPS support
Bluetooth 3.0 + HS
1080p video recording
2MP front-facing camera for video calls
Li-Ion 1650mAh battery
Android 2.3 Gingerbread

The Galaxy S 2 still has that little protrusion at the bottom end of
the back panel, giving it a better grip when held with one hand. The
back panel also has a textured finish and the camera is now paired with
an LED flash, an important feature they forgot to add in the first

The snapper now takes a full 1080p video with the 8MP camera. I was
already impressed with the camera from the old Galaxy and theyíve still
improved on that more.

The first Galaxy S was already thin at 9.9mm but this new one is even
thinner at just 8.5mm. And despite the larger form factor, they managed
to shave off several grams from the weight (down to 166g from 119g).

Weíre still not sure when Samsung will officially release the Galaxy S
II in the Philippines and for what price. Will post an update once we
get word. Full review coming up later next week (Samsung PR warned me
though that the unit is still an engineering model so there might be
bugs here and there).
