Samsung has officially launched the Samsung Galaxy S II, the 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus sequel to 2010's best-selling Galaxy S. The WVGA smartphone runs a 1GHz dual-core processor with an 8-megapixel, Full HD video capable camera and NFC support, but still manages to be 8.49mm thick at its thinnest point.

There's also NFC, WiFi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0+HS and HSPA+ support, while the OS is Android 2.4 Honeycomb. Pricing hasn't been announced, but the Samsung Galaxy S II is expected to go on sale in Q2 2011, perhaps as early as April. We've also separately confirmed that Vodafone will be ranging the device. Standby for hands-on and video!

    I am getting confused. I thought Honeycomb was to be 3.0. What is Anroid 2.4?

      Android 2.4 is the dual-core version of 2.3, and both are called Gingerbread. As Google has said, the 3.X fork is for tablets, and the 2.X fork is for phones.
