Galaxy S2 Hot Rival: 1.5GHz “TAKE Janus KM-200”

Samsung’s Galaxy S2 for some time now has been the talk of the town, with many of our readers showing a huge interest in the dual-core processor smartphone. Up until now, the S2 has looked like a handset “not to be messed with” including some fantastic specs. In recent months, we have looked at comparisons with other big names, a roundup of retailers, problems with screen problems, the handset being hacked to improve 1080p recording, accessories and so on.

But today’s news may be about to trample all over the S2‘s good name? We are talking about a new device to add to the mix, by the name of TAKE Janus KM-200, yep you’re right, not the best of names to get your tongue around, but its the specs particularly that of the bigger dual-core that’s impressive.

According to Slashgear, being carried by Korean carrier KT Telecom, the S2 lookalike will be the world’s first 1.5GHz dual-core handset, compared to the S2’s 1.2GHz. Along with this, it will include a 4.3-inch qHD display, run on Android’s 2.3.3 Gingerbread, carries Qualcomm’s MSM8260 along with 1GB of RAM, 8MP camera equal to the S2 with benefit of 1080p HD video recording, 1.3MP to the front and as stated an integrated DMB-TV digital tuner.

And it doesn’t stop here! Added to this, the new Janus KM-200 will include 16GB of internal storage with expansion via a microSD card slot, WiFi, GPS and so on. In terms of color and price, the new device will be retailing in a standard black color, white, or two-tone black and white with a price similar to that of $740.

We have to say looking at the specs listing, the Galaxy S2 has certainly got a fight on its hands, but with the iPhone 5 and Droid Bionic to be coming sometime soon, with the latter having several enhanced features such as bigger processor and camera, its a job to know how the competition will fair?
