Samsung Galaxy S2 and Galaxy Tab 2: Leaked specs and pictures

Yesterday we brought you confirmation that as well as the Galaxy S2 smartphone being debuted at MWC 2011 this coming Sunday, the Galaxy Tab 2 tablet would also be launched, although this could have a different name. We also learned that this would be a 10.1-inch tablet running Android 3.0 Honeycomb, which would be stiff competition for the Motorola Xoom.

Now we hear of another Samsung leak, this time from Richard Lai over on Engadget, sourced from Paran, which is a Korean website. An article about the Samsung Galaxy S2 made an appearance on Paran, complete with photo which you can see in this story (excuse the blur). The photo has since been removed although the text with specs remains.

This tells us that the Galaxy S2 will have a 4.3-inch display and run on Android 2.3, Gingerbread. There’s also a dual-core processor, which will bring it into line with the upcoming wave of dual-core processor phones such as the HTC Thunderbolt and Motorola Atrix 4G. Other known specs are HSPA+ and Bluetooth 3.0 and what’s more this could be the slimmest phone so far if the size of 8.49mm thickness is accurate. We have already extolled the virtues of the slim design of Sony’s beautiful Xperia Arc which is 8.7mm thickness so the S2 will be ultra-slim.

Also the article refers to the Galaxy Tab 2 (or otherwise called) tablet, which we published a small amount of detail on yesterday, and speculated on whether it could have a dual-core processor. The Paran article does seem to confirm this dual-core processor and also gives details of a 8-megapixel camera with HD video capture.

Pranov Rastogi over on Fun47 has also reported on some specs for the Galaxy S2 so check it out for more. Of course none of this is confirmed as yet but we won’t have long to wait to find out more. We have just noticed that in an update to Engadget’s story it is confirmed that the specs are genuine so these 2 devices look set to be a big hit.
