Samsung May Dump Orion For Galaxy S2 Smartphone

The alleged specifications of the successor of the Samsung Galaxy S, known as the S2 aka the i9100, may have been leaked by online retailer Expansys.

Pocketnow published the details of the handset which includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8260, a dual core Scorpion model clocked at 1.2GHz with an Adreno 205, a 4.27-inch super AMOLED plus WVGA touchscreen, 512MB RAM and 16GB internal memory plus a microSDHC card reader.

Other specifications include an 8-megapixel camera with AF, LED flash and full HD recording capability, front facing two megapixel camera, A-GPS, NFC capabilities, HSPA+, DLNA and hotspot.

It would be quite a surprise should the Galaxy S2 sport only 512MB RAM. Similarly flabbergasting would be if Samsung may have decided to choose a Qualcomm SoC given that it might have used the Orion, one of its own products, or even the Nvidia Tegra 2 which many expect to equip the Galaxy S2.

Expansys however later told Pocketnow that "the alleged leaks of information are nothing more than speculatively populated product holding pages, created and designed for internal use only".

The Samsung Galaxy S2 will be released at the Mobile World Congress 2011 in Barcelona on Sunday.
