Today during the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, Samsung officially announced the GALAXY S II, the successor to the popular GALAXY S line of phones.

The GALAXY S II measures 125.3mm x 66.1mm x 8.49mm and runs Google's latest Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system and has support for HSPA+ 21Mbps connectivity. It's powered by a dual-core processor and has an 8MP camera that's capable of recording 1080p HD video.

The phone also offers Samsung's next generation 4.27-inch 800 x 480 pixel resolution Super AMOLED Plus screen, which should offer a better color gamut and contrast ratio than the first GALAXY S devices which used its SUPER AMOLED display.

Samsung will offer some of its own apps on the device, including Social Hub Premium, Readers Hub, Game Hub, and Music Hub. The Music Hub will provide access to over 12 million tracks from 7digital, Game Hub will offer games from partners such as Gameloft, and the Reader Hub will provide access to 2,000 global and local newspapers, 2,3000 magazines, and 2.2 million books.

The GALAXY S II will come in 16GB and 32GB versions and its microSD card slot can be upgraded to a 32GB card.

It's unclear when the GALAXY S II will make its debut, or how much it will cost.
