Korean mobile phone manufacturer Samsung is geared up to come with an updated version of its already popular Galaxy S2 smartphone very soon. The device which will is codenamed as Celox is targeted against the soon to be launched Apple iPhone 5.
Celox which is expected to be released in September is said to come with an appeal coinciding with the Apple’s successor to the iPhone 4. The new handset will boast a 4.5-inch WVGA Super AMOLED Plus display which is little bigger than the 4.3-inch screen of the Galaxy S2.
The Celox will come with LTE/4G compatibility. The device is said to be powered by the Qualcomm APQ8060 SoC (coupled with the MDM9200) rather than the Samsung’s own Exynos 4210 SoC.
It also features an 8 megapixel camera, a 1750mAh battery, 16GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi, GPS, TouchWiz UI 4.0, and runs on Android 2.3 OS.
Moreover, there has been a steady fall in the price of the Samsung Galaxy S2 in the past few months. It is being anticipated that the S2 might be replaced by an even more powerful smartphone, which could probably be the Celox.
