The other features of the phone include an 8 mega pixel camera, with digital camera features like touch focus and smile detection.

Galaxy S II will also have 16 GB/32 GB memory, with 1GB RAM, gorilla glass display, touch sensitive controls, gyroscope control, swipe text input, multi touch method input, accelerometer sensor and touchWiz .
