Having taken Samsung into the mainstream of smartphone production and challenged the likes of the HTC Desire and Apple iPhone 4, the Galaxy S is to add the UI enhancements and new Android keyboard with easy copy and paste features found within the latest Google OS update.

Currently limited to Vodafone tied Galaxy S devices, the Android 2.3 update will also see the smartphone add improved battery life, reduced lag, multiple camera management enhancements and the ability to switch handsets to 2G signals.

Set to hit the UK on May 1st, the Samsung Galaxy S II, is to launch pre-installed with Google’s Android 2.3 OS, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, front and rear mounted cameras and a beautifully crafted slim line, light weight form factor.

Will the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S II top the competitive smartphone market or will the Atrix, Sensation and mooted iPhone 5 battle it out for top honours. Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
