kiwijunglist: Await galaxy S2 to dip to $500 - ?JUNE? or save up an extra $100, and buy it for ?$600? in May.


If you can get it for that price new, then do it, it's worth it!

But please share the place, for others on the forum?

Looks like it's confirmed to have the quad core Exynos, not sure about the screen size yet.  Hopefully 4.7, but who knows...

But who knows, it might have the same 8MP camera, maybe with a new camera chip, like the HTC One X, to take faster photos, and maybe a wider aperture lense

I think we'll either be shocked, surprised, or in awe.  Or all 3...

Having used the HTC one X for a few days, I think it's right to go 4.6/4.7, as long as they keep the same size, there is only about 1-2mm difference between my X and GS2, and it's slimmer than the GS2(apart from camera bulge)



Fingers crossed they can fit it into the ceramic chassis, only 14 days...

How about stick with 4.3" screen, but make the body smaller than the S2.  That is what I would like, however unfortunately it's unlikely to happen.
