Or maybe they didn't.
Yesterday, Expansys posted up what they claim to be the hardware specifications for several exciting devices due to launch at MWC 2011. The specs given are a tad off. For example, the Galaxy S 2 was listed as packing a Qualcomm processor. Expansys has made a statement:
Don't Miss: The best Deal on a new Samsung Galaxy S8
"...the alleged leaks of information are nothing more than speculatively populated product holding pages, created and designed for internal use only...we do not have full details of the specific products mentioned."
Which means these lists shouldn't be taken as gospel truth- but they may provide rough outline of what we can expect.
The Galaxy S 2 is said to pack a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor with a 4.3" Super AMOLED Plus display and an 8 MP camera. It'll be able to record full 1080p video. Also tipped was a 2 MP front-facing camera, NFC capabilities and HSPA+ connectivity. The Desire HD 2 will basically be the same thing, with a non-AMOLED display. Both devices are said to have a dinky 512 MB of RAM.
The Desire 2 has a 1 GHz processor and a 3.7" SLCD display. It'll have a 5 MP shooter capable of recording 720p video. Last, we have the Wildfire 2, which will have only a 600 MHz processor and a 3.2" touchscreen. The camera on this one is also said to be 5 MP.
We're likely to see more from all of these devices at MWC 2011. The Galaxy S 2 has been tipped before as having a 2 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM. While that seems more likely than a mere 512 MB of RAM, a dual-core processor seems more likely than a single-core.
