Samsung Galaxy S II: Leaked Hardware and Touch Wiz 4.0 Videos before Release

By Updated on

It has been a while since we last heard about the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S II, but we’re pleased to say that we have something good for you. A new leaked video of the device has surfaced over in Ukraine and it gives us a fantastic look at the handset for the very first time.

The Galaxy S II has a gathered a huge following since it’s unveiling at MWC 2011, as Samsung can proudly boast that they have currently have the world’s thinnest smartphone on their books in the S II, or S2 as it’s also known.

The video gives us a look at just how thin the device really is, not to mention giving us a first look at the brand new Touch Wiz 4.0 User Interface on top of Android 2.3 Gingerbread. However, a brief glimpse is all you get though, as most of the duration is reserved for a hardware guide, and showing you where all the ports are, and there’s a peek at inside the battery compartment too.

Since this prototype has mangaged to leak out, we’re presuming that more videos are on the way from Gagadget, the source of the information. You can head over to their website for tons more information on the S II , but you’ll need Google Translate at hand because it’s all in Russian.

What are your thoughts on the upcoming Galaxy S II – Is this a handset that is on your shortlist or not? It’s scheduled for release within the next few months.

UPDATE: We’ve now included a second video which gives you a detailed tour through the interface, enjoy!

    It looks the same as Froyo 2.2.

    Hope Samsung put out Gingerbread for the S soon, including the lagfix using EXT4.
