Whether it was deliberate or not, Samsung has confirmed the existence of the Galaxy S II (or 2) and the Galaxy Tab II (or 2) complete with photos of the device held by hostesses dressed in blue.

The S II will have a dual core Orion Cortex A9-based processor clocked at 1GHz with Wi-Fi, 24Mbps HSPA+. NFC Support, Bluetooth and a 4.3-inch WVGA Super AMOLED plus display, which is the biggest screen you can find now in the world of super smartphones.

It is more than likely that the Galaxy S II will come with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), an eight-megapixel camera with full HD recording capabilities, dual surround speakers, front facing camera. It will apparently be thinner and lighter than the Galaxy S; sources have claimed that it will be 8.5mm thick and 116g.

As for the Galaxy Tab II, it will have a 10.1-inch screen with a resolution of 1280x800 pixels, a CPU speed of 1GHz (possibly Tegra 2 according to some although that doesn't make sense to us) and possibly the same specification as the Galaxy S II except for the NFC and the stock Honeycomb OS.

Whether Samsung will keep selling the original Galaxy Tab and the Galaxy S remains to be seen; prices and availability are expected to be known by the end of the month.
