Samsung Galaxy S II becomes official at MWC: 4.3-inch AMOLED Touchscreen, 8 Megapixel camera, Gingerbread & more on the thinnest Smartphone to date!

February 13, 2011, By Shawn Wagnon

We first heard about the rumors, then got the leaked snapshots to get confirmation about its existence and now we already have the official release. Everything happened so quickly with the Samsung Galaxy S II over the last weekend that we barely had any time to look back and reflect. The Samsung Galaxy S II has now become official and you could spot it along with that 10.1-inch Honeycomb Tablet of Samsung at the MWC booth. Despite all the rumors though, there were still a few surprises in store.

The biggest bummer might be the lack of NVIDIA Tegra 2 Core, which was so talked about after the leaks. (Goes to show that you can never trust all those leaks completely… Again!) Here is what it does have though and even without the Tegra 2 Processor, it still looks very impressive to us.

  • 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display
  • 800 x 480 Display Resolution
  • Gingerbread with TouchWiz 4.0
  • Dual-core 1GHz Samsung core
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8-Megapixel rear camera with 1080p video capture
  • 2-Megapixel front-facing camera
  • 8.49mm thick body

That makes the Samsung Galaxy S II arguably the thinnest Smartphone on the planet. This should ensure that you feel very comfortable with it in your hand and in your pocket. With TouchWiz 4.0 and Gingerbread, the UI feels pretty smooth and with the features loaded on the Galaxy S II, you can hope for a an awesome gaming experience as well.
