Samsung Galaxy S2 pictures: Hands-on at MWC 2011

Dual-core processor touting Samsung handset launches and we go hands-on

Officially unveiled during the company’s Mobile World Congress opening conference yesterday, the Samsung Galaxy S2 has touched down with a bevy of exciting talking points.

Following the device’s journey into the realms of reality T3 went hands-on with the second-generation Galaxy S smartphone that is looking to not only emulate the success of its predecessor but trump the emerging breed of dual-core powered pocket blowers.

The first thing we noticed when getting our mitts on the Galaxy S 2 was just how lightweight the handset really is. Whilst its ultra thin form factor sees it pleasing on the aesthetics front, the device’s staggeringly low 116 gram weight, although somewhat disconcerting in the hand at first, is a joy and will no doubt appease many end users.

An area of the new Galaxy handset being heavily pushed by its crafters is the inclusion of four new ‘Hubs’ which allow users comprehensive and catalogued access to certain entertainment areas of their devices. Although the ‘Readers Hub’ and ‘Music Hub’ are shockingly reminiscent of Apple’s iBooks and iPod UI’s respectively, the ‘Social Hub’ and ‘Game Hub’ are sure to increase user interactivity.

Samsung’s TouchWiz 4.0 UI is a pleasant addition to the Galaxy S 2 offering a smooth and friendly interface with the dual-core handset’s party piece, a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, simply a pleasure to behold on every front.

Has the Samsung Galaxy S 2 met the expectations set by its predecessor or falling short of the range’s short heritage? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
