Android™ 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich
A Big, Beautiful Screen for Big, Beautiful Color
The Samsung Galaxy S II 4G raises the bar on picture quality with the 4.52" Super AMOLED™ Plus Display. Colors are deep and vivid. Detail is razor sharp. It's also energy efficient to prolong battery life. Not only is the color hard to believe, but so is the slender 9.9mm thickness and 4.7 ounce weight. The back is textured to improve grip and reduce fingerprints and smudges. The glass is tough but thin to resist scratches and damage.
The 1.2 Dual-Core GHz Processor Keeps Everything Humming
Your Galaxy S II 4G is turbo-charged with a 1.2GHz dual-core Samsung Exynos™ Processor. You'll have blazing-fast web browsing, non-stall gaming and buffering-free videos. The powerful processor handles multi-tasking with a breeze. You can check email while downloading a movie while listening to music while playing a game. You'll get tired before your GS II does!
The "Advanced Android™ Experience"
Your Galaxy S II 4G runs on the popular Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich. It gives you longer battery life, tons of apps, new technology support and more intuitive navigation. Keys on the virtual keyboard have been repositioned for more accurate typing. You can also type by dragging one finger with Swype®. You'll also get customizable power-saving options to manage battery life. Your apps are displayed on a clear, simple menu for quick selections.
Streamline All Your Apps for Smoother Navigation
Ice Cream sandwich is fully integrated with Google Mobile™ Services such as Gmail™, Google Talk™, plus Google Maps™ and Navigation, and includes an updated Voice Actions application. If you love adding apps, you'll have tons to choose from on Google Play™. The intuitive TouchWiz® user interface is customizable, with user-defined options and real-time widget support.
Two Cameras: HD Videos, Photos and Chat
The 2.0 megapixel front-facing camera points at you so your friends can see you - even if they're on the other side of the world. Google Talk allows users to video chat with your Google contacts, whether they're on a mobile phone or a computer. The rear-facing 8.0 megapixel camera shoots HD video and has a 4X digital zoom. It also has a built-in LED light that acts as both a flash when you shoot stills, and as a steady light for shooting video.
Integrated Social Networking and Social Hub
Enhanced interfaces in Samsung Social Hub, Contacts and Calendar make it easier to connect with friends, send messages and manage your events and social networks. Send and receive text and multimedia message, emails and social network posts with the unified composer and unified inbox. Your Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn accounts are all combined in Social Hub so you'll never have to open a browser to answer messages, post updates, leave comments, etc. Multiple calendars are integrated and color-coded in the Calendar app to keep track of everything with a glance.
