Galaxy S II I9103 to Sport Super LCD Display

Samsung unveiled its next generation high-end Galaxy series smartphone – Galaxy S II GT-I9100 at the Mobile World Congress 2011 last month in Barcelona, Spain. This new Galaxy S II GT-I9100 has a dual-core Samsung Exynos 4210 SoC processor and flaunts a gorgeous 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display. Samsung would be introducing a substitute of Galaxy S II with model number GT-I9103 which will have Nvidia Tegra 2 processor. It is expected to sport Super Clear LCD display, reported Samsung Hub.

Samsung is expected to introduce a Galaxy S II variant with a different processor and screen technology. The Galaxy S II specifications page itself notes that the Exynos processor may not be applicable to some regions. Call it dearth of Exynos CPUs or different strategy, the Galaxy S II variant with model number GT-I9103 is close to reality. The Galaxy S II GT-I9103 will have dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor and will sport Super Clear LCD display. At this moment, it’s unsure whether this model would have more differences compared to the original Galaxy S II GT-I9100 mo


Lately, Samsung has quietly introduced the Galaxy S LCD 4GB (GT-I9003) in India to meet up the popularity and demand of the Galaxy S (GT-I9003). The new Galaxy S LCD is basically a toned down version of Galaxy S with Super Clear LCD, a different processor as well as graphics and a couple of other differences. Hence, there’s a price difference between both the models. You may read our review of Galaxy S LCD 4GB GT-I9003 here to know more about it.

We expect Samsung to make an announcement regarding the Galaxy S II in India by next month. Let’s hope that Samsung introduces both Galaxy S II models at the same time or at least with a short time gap between them.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Wi-Fi Priced at $399, Launching on April 4

The Samsung Galaxy Tab was the first successful Android tablet which was launched back in 2010. It was the only tablet other than the iPad which had good sales, but compared to the iPad, it was a relative flop, mainly due to its high pricing. It was priced at $599 which was perceived to be quite high, as the iPad started at just $499. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 will likely be priced even higher, but here’s some good news for Android tablet fans. The Wi-Fi only version of the Galaxy Tab will be priced at $399, which is exactly the same as the first generation iPad. It will be launched on April 4. Though the Galaxy Tab Wi-Fi has much better hardware specifications, the iPad offers a better OS and more tablet apps. With the Motorola Xoom Wi-Fi coming in the next month, we don’t know how much of a success the Galaxy Tab Wi-Fi will be, but if Samsung announces an upgrade to Android 3.0 Honeycomb for the Galaxy Tab, it could be a very interesting device. By the way, you can also expect a Wi-Fi only version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 soon, but it will likely be priced much higher, closer to the $600 mark.
