The Chosunilbo is reporting (citing Samsung as its source) that the manufacturer will reveal a follow-up to the Samsung Galaxy S with the occasion of next year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The device is said to carry a dual core processor (Tegra2?) to operate Google Android 2.3 Gingerbread. It is also rumored to feature an electronic payment system (NFC?) and gyroscope but no other details have been given out which could relate it to the summer device rumor sporting a 4.3-inch HD screen.
With Samsung already having a huge bite out of Gingerbread with its recent Nexus S device (the only one currently out there to run Google’s current operating system out of the box) and NFC being supported by both the platform and the handset, Samsung has what it takes to pull this off. Nevertheless, if these rumors turn out to be true and we will indeed see a next potential “10 million units sold” Samsung smartphone soon, we can’t help but wonder what will happen to the Gingerbread update for the Galaxy S?
