Samsung ‘flagship’ Gingerbread phone ETA Feb 2011: may be Nexus S, may not be Nexus S

More Google Nexus S rumours abound, again courtesy of Engadget. What appears to be a leaked PowerPoint slide shows an unnamed smartphone with the subtitle ‘1st Half Flagship’. There’s some rather tantalising specs published too.

The Samsung-built sequel to the Google Nexus One will apparently be coming with a 4.3 or 4.5-inch “sAMOLED2” touchscreen, which presumably stands for Super AMOLED 2.

Other features include an 8-megapixel camera capable of 1080p video recording, a 1.2GHz processor and a whopping 16GB of internal storage. It seems our Android prayers have been answered; that’s a huge amount of storage for pictures, playlists and apps.

It also supports Bluetooth 3.0, 14.4Mbps HSPA and will of course run on Android 2.3 aka Gingerbread.

According to Engadget the picture of the smartphone above is a dummy image of an old Apiotek VoIP phone so the real thing – if indeed this is real – probably won’t look like it does here.
