Samsung Galaxy S II TV announced in Brazil, comes with ISDB-T television receiver

Samsung has announced the Galaxy S II TV (GT-S7273T) in Brazil, a device that carries only the name of the 2011 flagship but is otherwise a completely different device. It comes with an ISDB-T receiver, which will allow users to get television reception on the 4-inch screen, and also includes an antenna at the bottom that can be pulled to improve reception.

As for the specs, like mentioned above, there’s nothing from the original Galaxy S2 here. There’s a WVGA (480 x 800) display, 1GHz dual-core processor, 5-megapixel rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, 4GB of built-in storage and a microSD slot, and a 1,500mAh battery. That the phone is running on Android 4.2.2 is the only attractive part of the specifications, complete with all the TouchWiz features and customization we’ve come to expect.

The Galaxy S II TV will probably be exclusive to Brazil, though there’s no mention of a launch date just yet.

  1. That piece of shit is strong enough to run 4.2.2, but the S2 (2011 flagship)isn’t? Such a shame…

    • It’s pretty common. Best example is Sony: they couldn’t make ICS work well on 2011 1GHz phones, but the new devices like Xperia tipo with a weaker processor runs ICS well. Either they fail to adapt newer Android versions to older chipsets/devices, or they don’t want to so you buy newer devices.

    • yeah…another slap in the face to all us U.S. S2 owners/users who’rr stuck w/4.1.2 til death do us part!such a shame…str8-up LAME!!

  2. Strange design of TV antenna at the bottom of phone :lol

    • I thought it was an S Pen at first. :P

    • I guess one would watch the TV in landscape mode. Assuming it can be twisted when extended, it can easily become the top-right corner placement of the antenna.. :)

  3. Samsung Brazil must have really liked the galaxy sII because even the galaxy s advance they renamed to galaxy s II lite……

    • Who didn’t like the Galaxy S2? Tell me, I’ll take care of them, no one will know where they disappeared to. :P

  4. Ugh this has nothing in common to the SII.. This is more like the S4 Mini..

    • Or the Galaxy Ace 3, it’s exactly the same in specs. Go Samsung with all the variants! :P

  5. Why?
