Samsung Galaxy S2 HD could be heading to UK

Samsung Galaxy S2 HD could be heading to UKHow do you make something pretty amazing even more amazing? Aside from releasing it in pink, tweak it - and re-release it. Looks like that's what's happening to the Samsung Galaxy S II in the form of the Galaxy S II HD which may be coming to the UK.

We say 'may' because Mobi-city was showing an ad with exactly that claim, according to thenextweb.com but it's now since been pulled. Oh, you tease, you!

The Galaxy S II HD is not an enormous upgrade - certainly not as enormous as we expect the Galaxy S III to be - but definitely gives a few welcome improvements. For example, that already rather amazing Super AMOLED Plus screen would be beefed up from 4.3in to 4.65in, NFC would be shoved in and we'd also get the 1650mAh battery bumped up to 1850mAh.

Although this is one of those statements that is bound to cause furious comments below, we can personally say that the Samsung Galaxy S II is probably the best Android smartphone (and maybe not just Android) on the market today - even eight months or so after its release. At least, in this writer's humble opinion.

And if it is coming, considering Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy S III at MWC, our money's on it arriving pretty darn soon!

This is a very good thing. Very good indeed...this means that the S3 will be a massive upgrade over the original S2. This S2 HD is basically the specs Samsung could have come out with if they were feeling lazy with the S3.

Means the S3 will either be Cortex A15 or quad-core. This phone has a 1.5ghz Exynos already (it's out in Korea, has been for months).
