Galaxy S II (S2) Feeble: Hercules, Eternity & Blast To Rival

The Samsung Galaxy S II (S2) is arguably the phone that everybody wants, we know this from some of our readers comments and just by looking at the reported sales units. We know that the U.S. is still waiting for its arrival and at the present time, consumers really have nothing to go on in terms of release date. Just yesterday we expressed our belief (shared by others) that the Galaxy S II may not even turn up, we’ve seen a minimal amount of leaks, we know that when the Galaxy S was introduced to Korea, America followed after, this time around, its not happened and so on.

But with the introduction of some big smartphones on the way, Samsung may find cause to worry. Just this morning we had already looked at the iPhone 5 and the effects the new batch could have on it and this also could be said for the Galaxy S II. To find out about two of the handsets in question, the Samsung Hercules and the HTC Eternity click onto their respective links.

The other we wanted to give you news on was a handset that first got mentioned back in May. A concept phone by the name of the “HTC Blast” shouldn’t be dismissed. Ok, so we don’t know if it will ever be released but the specs are truly impressive.

Firstly if we tell you that compared to the Galaxy S II and its 4.3-inch Super Amoled Plus display, the Blast as Softpedia reported is rumored to have a 4.7-inch display, with the menu buttons hidden out of sight. In terms of dual-core processors which seem to be the rage at the moment, the Galaxy S II will come with a 1.2GHz whilst the concept Blast may include a whooping 1.5GHz along with Adreno 220 GPU for greater graphics.

Up until now, the Galaxy S II has risen above some of its rivals with its 8 megapixel rear camera, something of which is now expected on the Motorola Droid Bionic and possibly on Apple’s iPhone 5 with talk of it being 3D.

The Blast on the other hand is rumored to pack a massive 12 megapixel rear with dual-LED flash and support for High Definition video recording, along with a 3MP to the front, compared to Samsung’s 2MP. Currently the Galaxy S II runs on Android’s 2.3 Gingerbread OS whilst back in May, the Blast if released, would include Android 3.0 Honeycomb.

A key inclusion to the HTC Blast would be that of 3G and 4G connectivity, as well as benefits of WiFi and Bluetooth.

Have you been lucky enough to pick up a Galaxy S II, or are you still keeping everything crossed that it will make an appearance in the U.S.? Give us your thoughts on the HTC Blast?
