Samsung looks set to unleash yet another iteration of its hot-selling Galaxy S2 smartphone with a larger screen on board, leaked snaps suggest.

Codenamed ‘Hercules’, the handset, heading to Canada’s Telus network, is reportedly home to a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display – 0.2 inches bigger than the version released in the UK and Europe.

More expansive display aside, the handset also appears to rock a smoother, curvier back this time around. This is evident in a separate T-Mobile (USA) branded unit spotted on TMONews, with a battery cover that looks to be fashioned from brushed aluminium rather than the original S2's plastic.

The rest of the device is believed to be unchanged. This would mean it still sports a 1.2GHz dual core SoC processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and an eight-megapixel snapper with HD 1080p recording capabilities.

Alas, we’re possibly looking at a variant meant only for our North American friends, who’ve had to wait a bit longer to get on board with Sammy’s best. On the bright side, Samsung is launching a new a white Galaxy S2 model in our shores next month, so at least there’s that to look forward to.
