Update: This may have been a fake after all. According to BriefMobile, it was probably a mockup made by some Russian dudes on a forum, which later got picked up by the blogosphere as real news without checking its source. Well, read on below, as the phones specs are like a geek’s dream.

Samsung Galaxy S has been having a good run even before it has officially launched. It has been snapped up by quite a few carriers, include tier-one carriers and renamed and rebranded into different formats. Now some rumors are out about the successor to the Galaxy S from Russian forum itrans, supposedly called the Samsung Galaxy S2 i9200, and if what they are saying is true, it will be a behemoth. The Galaxy S2 is said to sport a big 4.3 inch 1280×720 Super AMOLED display giving it around 340 pixel per inch, certainly comparable to Apple’s Retina Display, and is supposedly due by early 2011.

The Galaxy S2 i9200 also has quite a bit of power under its hood with a 2GHz CPU and 1GB of RAM along with 4GB ROM. There will also be 32GB of flash storage along with support for an external microSD card. The camera is said to be 8 megapixels and will actually be capable of 1080p Full HD video recording. The Galaxy S2 should be releasing with Android 3.0 “Gingerbread” which itself is expected to come out sometime in Q4 2010. Connectivity options includes all the latest goodies like WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0, while also present is an accelerometer, gyroscope, proximity and ambient light sensors.

Of course, everything said, all this info should be taken with a pinch of salt. Samsung is also said to be starting mass production at a new 5th gen AMOLED plant in Q1 2011. The processor may be a new version of Samsung’s HummingBird processor, though no news of a 2GHz version has been heard till now.
