Samsung is just one of the many manufacturers getting ready to unveil its new smartphone and tablet products at Mobile World Congress but it will not be happy that the successors to the company’s Galaxy S smartphone and Galaxy Tab tablet devices have already surfaced in separate leaks.
Firstly, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. A render has been leaked to PocketNow, detailing a 10-inch device that quite clearly runs Honeycomb with notable Samsung UI elements also. The back looks to have a slightly raised centre which could aid the user when picking up the tablet but could also provide a slight angle when reading on a flat surface.
The tablet is said to sport an 8MP camera with Full HD video, dual surround sound speakers and could be powered by NVIDIA’s popular dual-core Tegra 2 processor.
To rub further salt into Samsung’s wounds, the Galaxy S 2 emerged on Korean website Daum (and was subsequently pulled), showing the new device and noting its specifications. According to Daum, the handset will feature a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, 1GHz dual-core CPU, Android 2.3 OS (Gingerbread), HSPA+, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n and apparently weighs just 116g.
It’s only a day until we will see the official announcements – who here is excited?
