Samsung Galaxy S II Launches in Korea; US, Europe May Have to Wait a Bit More

April 28, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

We know all you Samsung fans have been waiting to play with the Galaxy S II. Samsung has come up with a surprise – the sequel to their Galaxy S Smartphone has launched in South Korea first. That could mean the rest of the world will have to wait a bit more.

The new handset takes to South Korean customers on SK Telecom, KT Corp and LG Uplus. Running Google’s Android 2.3 operating system, the Galaxy S II will be powered by a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor. An 8 mega pixel shooter on the rear and a 2 MP front camera with full HD video recording and playback make it an ideal device for you.

A 4.3-inch Super AMOLED plus display backed by the TouchWiz 4.0 are the other prominent features. The mobile will offer access to 150,000 apps available in the Android Market.

As we had told you earlier, the Galaxy S II offers the convenience of managing smartphone content from a PC via local Wi-Fi connections. The Bluetooth 3.0+HS technology brings down the data transfer rates considerably too. The company expects to ship at least 60 million units globally this year from May in 120 countries, which include a predictive five-fold increase in the sales of Galaxy Tab.

Last year, Sammy sold a whopping 2 million Galaxy S handsets in South Korea, which reads as one-fifth of the global total. The South Korean market has always been favorable to Samsung and that explains the reason for the launch in this market initially.

This latest smartphone in the Galaxy line up is expected to charm you for sure. Are you willing to wait till it comes to stores near you?

As you continue in anticipation for the phone’s arrival on your shores possibly by May 1st, we  suggest you to hit the play button below to watch our hands on of the device at this year’s MWC.
