The specs of the S2 are impressive but the size of the phone is the real attention grabber here. The body is only 6mm thick and the 67.5mm wide with a 5-inch FHD display! Other features include OTG and, WCDMA 3G and dual SIM support. Pricing in China will be 1699 Yuan for this version (around $273.99), we will have to see what resellers set the international pricing at.
