Samsung Galaxy S2 Announced At MWC?

The successor of the very popular Samsung Galaxy S may be presented at the Mobile World Congress one month from now as a Korean newspaper unearthed more details about the handset.

ETnews suggests that the device will come with a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED screen with the same resolution as the HTC Desire HD, a dual core processor, Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) as well as NFC technology.

Obviously, it will be a beefier variant of the Samsung Nexus S which was unveiled a few weeks ago. Expect the Galaxy S to come with Samsung's own TouchWiz 3.0 user interface.

The mockup presented by the Korean newspaper looks a lot less curvy than the recent Samsung models and reminds us of the lines of the LG Chocolate.

Should the extra core be confirmed, we'd be curious to see whether that will be the Samsung Orion, whose graphics is said to be five times faster than its predecessor, or as another rumour puts it, the Nvidia Tegra 2.

The Orion SoC, which was released last year, may well provide the fundamentals for the Apple A5 processor set to equip the iPhone 5 and possibly the iPad 2.
