The smartphone is up to a 4.3" display, while the new Tab hits 10.1".

Today is a good day to be a Samsung fan. After multiple "leaks", the manufacturer has confirmed the extension of both the Galaxy S and Tab lines. Samsung Hub reports that the S 2 will be 4.3" while the new Tab will pack a 10.1" display. Perhaps this is Samsung's admission that the 7" form factor is a bust. The Tab hasn't exactly been the best selling slate, so this seems a sensible move.

The Gal S 2 has been confirmed as packing a 4.3" Super AMOLED display and a mighty dual-core 1 GHz processor. It will be 8.9 mm thick and weigh 116g. The camera is an 8 MP shooter. Connectivity options will include HSPA+ and WiFi b/g/n. We're also likely to see versions of this phone with LTE support (Verizon) and WiMax support (Sprint). Unless Samsung decides to wildly alter the strategy that allowed them to sell five million+ handsets in 2010.

The Galaxy Tab has been tipped as packing a 10.1" touchscreen with the Honeycomb version of Android OS and an 8 MP camera. It will be capable of recording and displaying full 1080p HD and will have dual surround-sound speakers. Unlike the first-edition Tab, this larger slate looks to have the muscle and features to really take the fight to Apple.

Both devices will be on display tonight and tomorrow at Samsung's Unpacked Event. I4U news will be there with cameras in tow to capture the magic and bring it all to you.
