Galaxy S II, the flagship Android-based mobile phone that South Korean handset vendor Samsung brought to the market only a few months ago has just got a new OS flavor leaked for it, namely Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread.
The mobile phone was made available for purchase with Android 2.3 on board, but Google released new flavors of the OS in the meantime, and it seems that Samsung too is getting ready to update its device.
Before the official software arrives, however, users can try out a leaked build of Android 2.3.4 for the handset, with all the improvements that the official release will sport already included into the mix.
Among them, we can count the inclusion of Google Talk video, along with an improved power management, expected to result in longer battery life for the device.
The GTalk video support that the new firmware update will bring forth will certainly prove a great addition to the mobile phone's capabilities. The Galaxy S II
comes with a two-megapixel photo snapper, which should result in a great video chat experience.

Before giving the leaked build a try, users should know that some of those who installed it reported a series of issues that affected the handset, including lagtime and more.
One way or the other, it appears that Samsung
is getting ready for the release of this new software update for its users, and that it might not be too long before an official announcement on this is made.
Samsung's Galaxy S II smartphone is on its way to become one of the most popular Android-based handsets in the world in the near future, even if it is not available in all markets around the world as of yet, and the availability of a new software for it, with various enhancements packed inside, will certainly help it become even more appealing than before.
