Samsung Galaxy S2 teaser

So a new Galaxy S is going to debut at Mobile World Congress later this month, that much we know. Outside of that, there's just not a lot of confirmed information available about the handset. However, the folks over at Samfirmware.com claim to have the goods on the Galaxy S2, and they shared that info today. The site claims that, according to their "insiders," Samsung is currently testing two different Galaxy S2 models: one with a 4.3-inch display and one that's 4.5 inches in size (both are reportedly Super AMOLED Plus). Other allegedly spilled specs include either a 1GHz or 1.2GHz dual-core Orion processor, 8 megapixel camera with LED flash, 1.3 megapixel FFC, NFC, Bluetooth 3.0, and Gingerbread.

Many of these rumored specs, like the dual-core Orion and 8MP camera, have been floating around for some time now, and I could see a lot of them making the cut. Considering that the Galaxy S2 will be Sammy's new high-end hotness, Android 2.3 seems like a pretty safe bet, even if it may end up angering original Galaxy S owners that are still stuck on Eclair. The upcoming pack of dual-core Tegra 2 phones means that a dual-core Orion will likely be included, as well. The only spec that doesn't seem cut and dry is the screen size, although Samfirmware is leaning toward the 4.5-inch side of things. What do you all think? Does the introduction of the Infuse 4G mean that a 4.5-inch Galaxy S2 is on the horizon?
