Samsung Galaxy S II and Galaxy Tab 10.1″ officially pictured

Samsung hasn’t really managed to keep a lid on either the Samsung Galaxy S II dual-core smartphone (aka the Galaxy S 2) or the new Galaxy Tab 10.1″, and now the company has pushed out official photos of the handsets. Samsung Hub and MovePlayer gathered together the shots, which show the Galaxy S II’s 4.3-inch Super AMOLED WVGA display and the Galaxy Tab 10.1″s 1280 x 800 panel and 8-megapixel rear camera.

The Galaxy S II also gets a 1GHz dual-core processor, WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0 + HS, HSPA+ and all in a 116g, 8.49mm-thick chassis. The 8-megapixel camera can shoot Full HD, and there’s either 16GB or 32GB of storage and the ability to stream content to a nearby HDTV via DLNA. Apps include an updated version of TouchWiz, along with a Readers Hub, Social Hub, Games Hub and Music Hub.
As for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1″, that runs Honeycomb and, since it’s a Google Experience device, Samsung’s TouchWiz UI isn’t loaded. It can also record Full HD video, and it has dual surround speakers. We’ll be checking out both devices at Samsung’s press event at MWC 2011 later today
