Samsung has issued promo material for the successor to the best-selling Galaxy S, as it looks to head-off device launch congestion at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) by officially unwrapping the handset on Feb 13th.
The South Korean phone maker confirmed plans to unveil its latest Android effort on the eve of next month’s high-profile tech expo via an event invitation sent out to journos and other movers and shakers.
The invite shows the original Galaxy S next to the none-too-cryptic but strangely portentous slogan “Evolution is fate”. And while the use of the term 'evolution' suggests on some level that the device will be an incremental upgrade, previous device leaks suggest otherwise.
Chief among the rumoured features that have got Fandroids in a bit of tizz is a dual core processor that promises to keep things ticking over at a speed that makes Sammy’s previous flagship Galaxy phone look a bit sluggish.
It’s also reportedly home to a 4.3-inch screen – expected to be Super AMOLED Plus– and will house Near Field Communication technology for contactless credit card payments. And in the US at least, its expected to offer LTE support for super fast downloads over 4G networks.
Taking place in Barca between February 14-17th, this year's MWC is expected to see a slew of Android tablet and phone launches, including the first HTC slate, dubbed the Scribe, as well as the much-anticipated PlayStation phone from Sony Ericsson.
