T-Mobile today revealed additional details about the Samsung Galaxy S II 4G smartphone. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 Processor with 1.5 GHz dual CPUs, running on Android 2.3.5 (Gingerbread) and NFC enabled. The beautiful 4.52-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen makes movies and TV on your phone look great. Plus, HDMI output and DLNA compatibility let you watch movies, shows, video, or view photos on your own TV, right from your phone.
The Galaxy S II will be one of T-Mobile’s fastest smartphones and the first to take advantage of T-Mobile’s faster 4G (HSPA+ 42) network technology, which claims average download speeds approaching 8 Mbps with peak speeds around 20 Mbps on T-Mobile’s 4G network. However, these speeds are not available everywhere yet, so you’ll need to check if T-Mobile has enabled this service in your area.
The smartphone also acts as a mobile entertainment center with quick and easy access to thousands of premium movies and TV shows through Netflix, T-Mobile TV in Mobile HD2, Samsung Media Hub and YouTube.
