The Samsung Galaxy S II
The price of the much-awaited successor to the popular Samsung Galaxy S have now been revealed. YugaTech’s sources have pegged the dual-core 1.2Ghz Android smartphone for the price of PHP 29,990 – possibly as the prepaid kit for Globe Telecom. Remember when single core flagship smartphones cost PHP 34k and above? Well, that’s definitely not the trend anymore.
Samsung’s new flagship is an impressive device. It has a 4.3” Super AMOLED Plus screen – which is still the best display technology you can get, despite the lack of upgrade in its 800×480 resolution. It has a dual-core 1.2Ghz processor, 8MP Camera with LED Flash with 1080p video recording plus a 2MP front-facing camera. It comes out of the box running Android 2.3 Gingerbread and Samsung’s TouchWiz UI 4.0. What’s doubly impressive about this device is that Samsung continues its design philosophy by making the phone even slimmer and lighter than before, despite getting a larger battery and screen real estate. The Galaxy S is only 8.5mm thin, and weighs 116g. In comparison the iPhone 4 comes at a relatively portlier 9.3mm and 137g. (Only relatively, because we all know the iPhone 4 isn’t portly at all.)
The Galaxy S is said to be coming this June, with a short exclusivity deal with Globe. Reports say that the Samsung Store in SM North EDSA are selling them, but we’ll wait for confirmation to say for sure.
