The Samsung Galaxy S2 may not just be a face-lift from the Google Nexus S. The new phone is expected to have all of the bells and whistles as the attractive Nexus S, but exhibit a dual core processor as well. It will be running (at least) Android 2.3, but with the skinned modifications we see on every Galaxy S device.

This definitely seems like a case of deja vu seeing as the same incident happened between the Google Nexus One and HTC Desire; the Desire nearly having the same hardware as the Nexus One. When it comes down to it, deciding which phone to purchase will solely determine if the user prefers an unmasked version of the Android OS or one cloaked in a Galaxy S fashion.
