Can we please catch a break? We’re all for hearing about newer, bigger, better, and badder Android devices (even if they’re just rumors), but Samsung’s still got a ton of countries to launch the Samsung Galaxy S in before they jump into a supposed Galaxy S2. New rumors are saying that the device – scheduled to launch in early 2011 – will be as good as an Android handset has ever sounded.
For starters, a 4.3-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 1280×720 leads the way into a very delicious-sounding package that includes 1GB of RAM, 4GB of ROM, 32GB of built-in storage, 2GHz processor (possibly a dual-core architect), an 8-megapixel camera with “full” HD video (indicating 1080p?), Bluetooth 3.0, WiFi up to N, and an accelerometer accompanied by a gyroscope. Everything is said to be pushed along by the power that Android 3.0 (otherwise unofficially known as Gingerbread) provides.
This sounds a lot like the dream device I just got done describing in the article regarding Google’s accomplished mission in launching the Nexus One. It also sounds a lot like what we first heard about Android 3.0 (whose rumors were later “debunked” by a very annoyed Google engineer): support for 720p screen resolutions at the OS’s core would be the biggest giveaway. Still, it’s a rumor that we’re going to have to throw into the bin, but we’ll make sure it sits at the top as we await more details to leak out sometime before the year is up.
