Samsung Galaxy 2 in the Pipeline; To Feature Dual-core Processor, Retina Display?

Written By Sam on 17 November 2010

Here’s an interesting rumor doing the rounds. We hear a successor to the Samsung Galaxy S is in the pipeline. And it is likely to be launched in the first quarter next year. The news comes at a time when speculation is rife about the company’s upcoming handset being developed in association with Google — referred to as the Samsung Nexus S likely also to be released in Q1 next year. So, the temptation to co-ralate the two is high. Is Samsung working on its own version of the Nexus S? We know what HTC did when the Nexus One it had launched together with Google bit failed to impress — the company went ahead and launched its own version of Nexus One separately, the HTC Desire. Is Samsung going the HTC way in this regard? Or will Samsung Galaxy 2, which is also being dubbed as the Samsung GT i9100, will be a successor of the Nexus S?

Mobile reviewer Eldar Murtazin is understood to have had the opportunity to use and test the device, as revealed in one of his latest tweets. And reports are floating thick and fast that the device might actually outshine the Nexus S. Here are two reasons why:

  • 1.2GHz Dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 design based Orion microprocessor with Mali 400GPU.
  • 4.5-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen for improved viewing experience with the Retina-like display

Some reports suggest the Galaxy 2 will make an appearance in the Mobile World Congress which will be held in February 2011 at Barcelona.
