Samsung is going to increase the speed of the processor in the second-generation Galaxy S. This change will make an already-cutting-edge smartphone into something even more powerful. However, it’s also going to delay the release of this Android OS device.
When the Galaxy S II was unveiled in February, Samsung said it would have a processor with two 1 GHz cores. This company’s Estonian division has now revealed that the device is being upgraded to a 1.2 GHz dual-core chip.
This change is likely the reason why Samsung India announced via Twitter:
“Due to delay in the global launch of SGS2 the device won’t be launched before June. And, its not just India but its delayed all over.”
Other Features of the Samsung Galaxy S II
The upcoming version of the Galaxy S will have a larger display than its predecessor and a better camera.
The Galaxy S II will run Android OS 2.3 (Gingerbread), the latest version of Google’s operating system.
There will be versions with 16 GB or 32 GB of internal storage as well as a microSD memory card slot potentially giving it 32 GB more capacity.
In addition to 3G cellular wireless networking, this model is going to feature Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, an A-GPS receiver, and DLNA.
The specifications list includes an 8 MPx camera with FullHD (1080p) video recording at 30fps, while a 2.0-megapixel front-facing camera will be used for video conferencing.
One version of the Galaxy S II will include support for Near Field Communication (NFC), something that is built into Android OS 2.3. This allows users to read information off of everyday objects like stickers and posters that are embedded with NFC chips.
Overall, this Samsung model is going to be 4.9 by 2.6 by 0.3 inches (125 x 66 x 8.5mm) and 4.0 ounces (116g).
