The New Year’s resolution of the world’s second largest mobile phone maker, Samsung, is to dramatically increase its mobile sales figures to 60 million during 2011.
According to The Korea Times, Shin Jong-kyun, head of Samsung’s mobile business division, said that the Korean company plans to unveil a new model of the Galaxy S during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2011 to be held next month (14-17 February) in Barcelona. This smartphone will be running a dual-core processor, not specifying whether it’ll be Nvidia’s Tegra 2 or the company’s own Orion CPU. It will also boast a “super” AMOLED (active matrix organic light emitting diode) Plus display sporting enhanced density (50% more sub-pixels for better contrast and outdoor readability), as well as operate on Android 2.3 aka Gingerbread (like the Samsung built Google Nexus S).
The current Galaxy S has been a huge sales success for the company, especially considering that Samsung sold around 20 million smartphones during 2010, with more than half of those sales being generated by the Galaxy S alone.
During the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2011 held last week in Las Vegas, the company showed off its Infuse 4G smartphone, which it says will be “the thinnest Android device”, sporting a 4.5" Super AMOLED Plus touch-screen, 1.2 GHz CPU as well as Android 2.2 (Froyo).  
Shin also stated that Samsung willl also be introducing additional touch-screen tablet PCs this year to join its successful Galaxy Tab. He didn’t provide any more details, but said that the company will divulge more detailed business plans during MWC 2011.
