The Samsung Galaxy S and the Samsung Galaxy S II are by far some of the most popular high end Android handsets. The Galaxy S was announced at MWC in 2010 and then brought out for the U.S. over the summer of 2010. The Galaxy S II was announced at MWC in 2011 and then brought out to the U.S. in the summer of 2011.
Guess what? MWC 2012 is just around the corner. Samsung has sent press invites out to journalists for a press conference at CES in Las Vegas in 2 weeks. While many sites are making reference to this press event as a possible new phone launch, it’s highly unlikely because the invite has come from the consumer electronics division and not Samsung Mobile. Samsung Mobile has invited press to their booth at the convention, again not a launch sign.
More after the break
On the other hand though, we all remember receiving the invites to the first “Samsung Unpacked” event at MWC in Barcelona last year. That’s when we’re pretty sure a proud JK Shin will again take to the stage and introduce us to this new device.
SlashGear has outed these press reference shots along with some of the details of the next installment of Galaxy S.
According to SlashGear, the device is expected to run the new quad core, Exynos 4412 1.5ghz processor, Touch Wiz 5.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, a 5 inch HD superAMOLED display with a resolution of 1280 x 720.
It looks like the camera will be 12 megapixels on the rear with an LED and a Xenon flash and of course a 2 mega pixel front facing camera. Slashgear has also said that it will feature an “S Pen” like the Samsung Galaxy Note and run on 4G LTE.
Slashgear gets this info from a Russian blogger who has in the past tipped us off to some really good stuff. The final piece from the Russian is that the phone will dual boot Android and Samsung’s Bada OS, that one we’re not too sure about. What do you think?
