Samsung Galaxy S II powered by NVIDIA Tegra 2
Samsung Galaxy S II will most probably be the second most successful smartphone of 2011 – the first of course being the Apple iPhone 5 when it is eventually released.

The image above is taken from Samsung’s first commercial video for Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone. They’ve posted the clip below so you can see how the little girl mistakes the little clown fish swimming on her (or sadly her parent’s) Samsung Galaxy S II as a real fishy. Concerned for its welfare, she tenderly plonks the phone in the goldfish bowl so it can ‘be happy’ again. The point of the video, of course, is to emphasize the vivid and clear display of the Samsung Galaxy S II‘s Super AMOLED Plus display. We know a lot of you out there who are keen to own this device are a lot smarter, but just in case you haven’t noticed yet, there is a disclaimer on the video saying that the Samsung Galaxy S II is in fact, NOT waterproof.
