-Hey everyone I'm Bonnie Cha, Senior Editor at CNET.com and we're here at Mobile World Congress 2011 in Barcelona Spain with the first look at the Samsung Galaxy S2. This is the next generation galaxy smartphone and some of the designed features that are new, it has the 4.27-inch super AMOLED touch screen that's gorgeous as usual and its really super thin as you can see here. It is running Android 2.3 along with TouchWiz 4.0. So, Samsung's user interface is on here. Some of the new features of that are these 4 hubs up here that includes the gaming hub, music, readers hub, and the social hub. With these 3 new hubs here, you should be able to get new gaming content as well as music and books. They have redone some of the widgets, so it is has Flickr interface here. Some of the new specs, it is running in videos with grip 2 chip set. So, it is dual-core processor phone. It also got a 8-mega pixel camera here on the back along with the flash, as well as the 2-mega pixel camera on front for video calls, so that's very nice. For its availability, there just making global announcement today. No word yet on US availability or pricing, but I suspect that it probably will make its way to the US carrier sometime this year.
