Smartphones with built-in TV receivers are commonly found in parts of Asia, but now Samsung is bringing this technology to Brazil in a new device, the Galaxy S2 TV. Somewhat confusingly named, the S2 TV doesn't share much, if anything in common with the regular Galaxy S2. The design is completely different, as is the internal hardware — the S2 TV has a 4.0-inch WVGA LCD display and is powered by a 1GHz dual-core CPU, and has 4GB of storage and a 5-megapixel camera. It's also running Samsung's latest TouchWiz UI atop Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
Of course, it's the ISDB-T TV support that sets this handset apart from most others, and there's an extendable antenna found on the bottom right corner of the Galaxy S2 TV. You'll need to live somewhere where this TV standard is used to make the most of the S2 TV's headline feature, however, and that excludes anywhere outside of South America and a few countries in the Far East.
