Samsung officially revealed the T-Mobile GALAXY S II on Tuesday at a press event in New York City. The phone’s specs are very similar to the European version of the GALAXY S II, but T-Mobile’s model has more rounded corners and a smoother back panel. The device looks like it’s primarily made of plastic, but unfortunately we couldn’t get close with it because Samsung and T-Mobile kept it under glass. It packs a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and Samsung’s new TouchWiz user interface which is a big improvement over the version that shipped on the original Galaxy S model — we’ve generally found widgets are cleaner and more useful, and overall it is much easier on the eyes. T-Mobile’s Samsung GALAXY S II is equipped with 16GB of storage, a 4.52-inch Super AMOLED Plus display that offers incredible colors and super deep blacks, an 8-megapixel camera capable of recording 1080p video, a second front-facing camera for initiating video chats and support for T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network. Hopefully we’ll be able to get a closer look in the coming weeks. T-Mobile has not yet announced pricing for the GALAXY S II but it’s expected to launch this fall.
