Samsung Galaxy S2 listed by UK retailer

UK mobile retailer Mobile Fun has a listing up for the Samsung Galaxy S2, featuring what is hopefully a factual list of the next-gen Android phone’s features. We’re slightly suspicious that the spec listing tallies perfectly with previous internet rumours, but… maybe those rumours were just spot on?

Here’s the site’s bullet-pointed Galaxy S2 tech spec sheet:

  • Powerful dual-core 1.2GHz Samsung Orion processor
  • Ultra sharp 4.3″ Super AMOLED Plus screen
  • Next-generation Bluetooth 3.0
  • NFC technology for contactless payments and more
  • 1GB RAM lets you multitask with ease
  • Comes with Android 2.3 Gingerbread
  • 8MP camera with LED flash and 1080p video recording with 1.3MP front-facing camera for video calls

The photograph used on the site’s listing is clearly a very ropey fake, which doesn’t instill much confidence in the above – but we’ll give them the benefit of the doubt.

We’ll throw it up and see what happens.

    I read the CPU as being a “Powerful dual-core 1.2GHz Samsung Onion processor”. My eyes aren’t what they used to be.

    I’d have one. But not for that price. Samsung’s got a bit big for its boots lately, hasn’t it?

    wow, its really hard to decide what phone to get next, motorola atrix, sony experia play, sony arc, lg optimus 2x… very very tough choices. The worst phone in that list is the arc, but its probs the best looking, i do use my phone for portable gaming so having the play would be amazing, esp for the nintendo emulators as well as ps1 games. but then theres the atrix with tegra 2 chip and 1gb of ram, and now this with 1.2 dual core and 1gig of ram, moto locks the bootloader where samsung doesnt, but i like the idea of the nvidia store as alot of phones and tablets are going to use the tegra 2, and better versions of games are optimised for that chip where as the orion will only be on the samsung so i doubt many things will take advantage of it. Tough Tough choices, but much rather have these kind of choices than having no choice and being locked into the apple ecosystem.

      I know, I’m in same boat and I agree the arc does look the best but is the lowest spec of the lot. however I go for more on looks then technology however I have to say the arc is too low spec compared to these high end dual core mobs. then this galaxy s2 hit the scene. this mob is defo the second hottest looking mob and the spec is sik. wud of like a dedicated camera button but hey can’t get everything. so galaxy s2 it is!!

      writing off a x10 :o)

    • LG/Google Nexus 5 review

      Nexus 5It’s smooth to use, the 1080p display is sharp, clear and bright, the device is extremely light and thin and therefore very pocketable and portable — much more so than other 5-inch phones we’ve used. And yet… we’re a bit unimpressed by the overall package…

      The HTC One V is HTC’s third entry in its high-profile new HTC One range, offering a smaller 3.7″ display running on a single-core 1GHz processor.
