As I had reported earlier that Samsung will be announcing the Galaxy S2 in India on April 13th, the company has today made this official.
Samsung announced a whole plethora of gadgets at the Samsung South West Asia Forum in New Delhi today. Amongst many other devices, the much awaited Samsung Galaxy S II will be launched in India in May and will be priced at Rs. 30-35,000 (US$ 675-785).
Both the devices boast of similar specifications that includes a 1 GHz dual core NVIDIA tegra 2 processor, 8 MP camera, 1080p video camcorder, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 n, DLNA, HDMI out and support HSPA+ network. However, there are some differences that distinguish the two devices. The Galaxy S II has a 4.3-inch WVGA (480 x 800) Super AMOLED plus touch screen display whereas the LG Optimus 2X has a 4-inch WVGA (480×800) TFT LCD touchscreen display. The Galaxy S II has a whopping 16GB of internal storage as compared to the Optimus 2X that has an internal storage of 8GB. Samsung has added Cisco based enterprise solutions to attract the enterprise users while the Optimus 2X shows off dual display support (HDMI mirroring) and may be upgradable to Android 2.4 when it is ready.
