Samsung Galaxy S II gets previewed: Great screen, performance untapped

Samsung's Galaxy S II isn't expected to ship for a while yet, but a prototype unit has already turned up for some Russian previewing. Mobile-review has managed to grab the S II and put it through its paces, with the 8-megapixel camera getting particular praise.

The Galaxy S II is accused of being a little too wide, but then there's a 4.27-inch WVGA Super AMOLED Plus display to fit in. That's said to be a significant improvement over the Super AMOLED on the Nexus S, helped by the new DNIe+ image processing tech (which is similar to Sony's BRAVIA Engine on the XPERIA Arc).

Unfortunately, our questions about the processor - some handsets will use Samsung's own Exynos, some will get NVIDIA's Tegra 2 - go unanswered, though the Galaxy S II is said to be speedy. This is only part one of the preview, so we'll have to wait a little longer to find out exactly what mobile-review think about the smartphone overall.

      If its anything similar to the Galaxy S, then the S2 will be carrier independent. Meaning it will be released on all carriers.

    I have the previous release of samsung galaxy S, It’s great phone.
    But i think the new release is much more good, hence position of power key, flash, size and some other interface seems to be improved
