Samsung Galaxy S2 specs and release date leaked

UK mobile site puts Samsung Galaxy S2 up for pre-order - and reveals specs in process.

Although the official teaser video puts the great Mobile World Congress reveal of Samsung's Galaxy S follow-up at Sunday, February 13th, UK phone seller mobilefun.co.uk has jumped the gun and posted up a rather extensive list of Galaxy S2 details on their site - along with an option to pre-order.

Mobilefun pegs the release date at 4th March 2011, and prices the handset at £549.95. Also leaked are the specs, with Sammy fans reportedly able to look forward to a dual-core 1.2GHz Orion processor, a 4.3" Super AMOLED Plus screen, Bluetooth 3.0, 1GB RAM and an 8MP camera with LED flash and 1080p video recording (and a lower-spec front-facing camera for video calls). The S2 runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread out of the box.

Also featured is the same NFC (near field communication) technology currently found in the Google Nexus S, which will allow handsets of the future to be used to make payments and money transfers in a similar fashion to Oyster cards.

The Super AMOLED Plus technology is the next generation of Samsung's already blacker-than-black AMOLED screens, which are responsible for the retina-burningly vibrant colours found on the Nexus S and current Galaxy S. The new "Plus" Super AMOLED screens make that contrast even sharper, while also being easier to use in bright sunlight, according to Samsung.
