The Samsung GALAXY S II features a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4.27″ Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen display, weighing at 116g and 8.49mm thickness, with Android 2.3 Gingerbread platform. This superstar device is poised to take Singapore by storm on the month of June 2011 (most likely towards the end).
With the next generation TouchWiz UX technology (version 4), together with the various Samsung Hubs, the Samsung GALAXY S II will offer an unprecedented content experience rivaling any mobile phones out there.
Together with the 4.27″ Super AMOLED Plus, making improvements in screen size, colour gamut and power consumption, and 1650 mAH high capacity battery, you won’t be constantly looking for a phone charger in the middle of the day.
The Samsung GALAXY S II will also come with the following features:
- Live Panels, Motion UX gestures, 3D graphic effects
- B2B solutions like Cisco WebEx & VPN, Sybase Afaria, Exchange Activesync
- USB OTG (On-The-Go) which will come later as an update
- Embedded video player that supports .srt subtitle files
Not only that, the Samsung GALAXY S II has several exclusive partnerships with the following companies:
- B-Secure (security)
- Citibank (online banking)
- Clozette.co (fashion)
- EZ-Link (card management)
- PhillipCapital (trading with POEMS)
- Radioactive (interactive music)
As you can see, I’m very impressed with the Samsung GALAXY S II. However, I feel it’s a little too big and thin for me, but great for people who likes that form. Why can’t they add a larger battery to fill up additional space of this already anorexic phone?
The Samsung GALAXY S II (16GB) will be available in June 2011 at S$998 (inclusive of GST), without line contract.
