Samsung’s latest, fastest, smartest smartphone yet, the Galaxy S 2, is now available to purchase on 3.
Unveiled at the Mobile World Congress 2011 in Barcelona back in February, Sammy’s hotly awaited sequel to the ten million-selling original Galaxy S has already been confirmed for O2 and Vodafone. Now 3 has joined the party by announcing it will also offer the handset when it finally hits store shelves on these shores.
Standout specs include a faster than fast dual core 1.2GHz processor that keeps everything ticking over nice and smooth, a retina-scorching 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display that makes the competition look a bit dated, an eight-megapixel snapper that shoots videos in full 1080p, plus a front-facing VGA for video calls and an ultra-slim design – the slimmest in fact, of any Android to date – that measures just 8.49mm in thickness.
If that hasn’t got you drooling already, it also runs on the newest, tastiest version of Android - 2.3, aka Gingerbread – plus Sammy’s all-new custom UI which brings back the much-missed app tray with a snazzy 3D rotating effect and puts a greater emphasis on hubs that allow you to access all your content more easily than before.
Punters looking to pick up Galaxy S 2 with 3 can register their interest on 3’s website. No concrete release date or contract options have been revealed but expect to hear more regarding those real soon.
