It has a 4.3-inch, Super AMOLED 800x480 screen, a dual core 1.2-GHz processor, fast 4G network connectivity, and a sleek and simple design. Super AMOLED Plus display is bright and vivid, and surprisingly crisp given the relatively low resolution
The refurbished TouchWiz 4.0 is rather similar to the previous version, but it also has a few aesthetic and functional enhancements here and there. The newest version of ToucWiz falls on the enhancing side. TouchWiz adds sweet enhancements plus some welcome aesthetic tweaks as reported by GottaBeMobile.
Like all Galaxy phones, the S2 provides Samsung's Media Hub for your movie- and TV-watching pleasure.
The AT&T version has a 4.3-inch display, while the Sprint and T-Mobile versions have 4.5-inch displays.
The Sprint and T-Mobile versions have more rounded corners than the AT&T and European versions.
Both the Sprint and AT&T versions are powered by a 1.20-GHz dual-core Samsung Exynos processor.
The phones will ship with an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording and a front-facing 2-megapixel camera.
