An upgraded, media-focussed take on the Android behemoth that is the Samsung Galaxy S2 could be on the way to Blighty, reports suggest, as all eyes turn to Sammy ahead of its showcase event at the Mobile World Congress (MWC).
Dubbed the Samsung Galaxy S2 HD, the handset rocks a broadly similar spec sheet as the standard edition of Sammy’s wunderkit, but with the 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen making way for a higher-end 1280x780 resolution HD display that measures a positively tablet-esque 4.65 inches.
Other changes rumoured to be on board the revamped kit are NFC smarts for contactless payments and a longer-life battery, intended to address the longevity problems that are many a smartphone’s Achilles heel.
Already apparently pencilled in for a US release, an ad on MobiCity suggests it may be coming over here too – a market where the S2 has been instrumental in establishing Android as the world’s most popular smartphone platform.
Speculation over Samsung’s plans comes ahead of next month’s MWC event at which it is expected to unveil the successor proper to its biggest-ever selling phone in the shape of the S3.
