EXHIBIT 12 Page 1 of 16 Samsung Galaxy S II From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The Samsung Galaxy S II (GT-I9100) is a smartphone running under the Android operating system that was announced by Samsung on February 13, 2011 at the Mobile World Congress. It is the successor to the Samsung Galaxy S, with a different appearance and significantly improved hardware.[6] The phone is also the predecessor of the yet-to-be unveiled Samsung Galaxy S III.[7] The Galaxy S II was one of the slimmest smartphones of the time, mostly 8.49 mm thick, except for two small bulges which take the maximum thickness of the phone to 9.91 mm.[8] The Galaxy S II has a 1.2 GHz dual-core "Exynos" system on a chip (SoC) processor,[9] 1 GB of RAM, a 10.8 cm (4.3 in) WVGA Super AMOLED Plus screen display and an 8 megapixel camera with flash and full 1080p high definition video recording. It is one of the first devices to offer a Mobile High-definition Link (MHL),[10] which allows up to 1080p uncompressed video output to an MHL enabled TV or to an MHL to HDMI adapter, while charging the device at the same time. USB On-The-Go (USB OTG) is supported.[11][12] Samsung Galaxy S II The user-replaceable battery on the Galaxy S II gives up to ten hours of heavy usage, or two days of lighter usage. [13] According to Samsung, the Galaxy S II is capable of providing 9 hours of talk time on 3G and 18.3 hours on 2G. [13][14] On March 12th (2012), Samsung began rolling out the latest version of Android's Operating System - Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) - on the Galaxy S II.[15] Contents ¦ 1 Launch and availability ¦ 1.1 Asia/Pacific ¦ 1.2 North America ¦ 1.3 South America ¦ 1.4 Africa ¦ 1.5 Europe ¦ 2 Hardware ¦ 2.1 Processor ¦ 2.2 Memory ¦ 2.3 Display ¦ 2.4 Audio ¦ 2.5 Camera ¦ 2.6 Connectivity ¦ 2.7 Accessories (optional) ¦ 3 Software ¦ 3.1 Android operating system ¦ 3.2 User interface Samsung Galaxy S II (GT-I9100) Manufacturer Samsung Electronics Series Galaxy series; S series Compatible Dual band CDMA2000/EV-DO networks Rev.

The release of the Galaxy R 'GT-I9103' corroborated with early pre-release reports of an Nvidia powered Galaxy S II smartphone.[18][19] Eldar Murtazin, of, hinted that Model / SGSII LTE & HD LTE Model & Rogers Model) Page 3 of 16 Samsung might have faced delays in meeting worldwide shipment of both its Exynos chip and Super AMOLED Plus screens. He noted that nobody expected the "huge success" and "sky high" demand for the previous Samsung Galaxy S.[20] GPU ARM Mali-400 MP (GT-I9100) [2][3] Adreno 220 (models with Snapdragon SoC) Different regions around the world have received this device to market beginning from the earliest of April 2011.

[25] Samsung Galaxy II LTE U.S. Cellular March 1, 2012 Samsung Galaxy S II U.S. Cellular Digicel December 21, 2011 Samsung Galaxy S II Digicel Dismantled Samsung Galaxy S II, from left to right components include the handset, battery and back cover The Exynos branded SoC was the source of much speculation concerning another branded successor to the previous "Hummingbird" single-core SoC of the Samsung Galaxy S. The Exynos 4210 uses ARM's Mali-400 MP GPU.[2][28] This graphics GPU, supplied by ARM, is a move away from the PowerVR GPU of the Samsung Galaxy S.[29] The Exynos 4210 supports ARM's SIMD engine (also known as Media Processing Engine, or 'NEON' instructions), and may give a significant performance advantage in critical performance situations such as accelerated decoding for many multimedia codecs and formats (e.g., On2's VP6/7/8 or Real formats).[30][31][32] Page 5 of 16 At the 2011 Game Developers Conference ARM's representatives demonstrated 60 Hz framerate playback in stereoscopic 3D running on the same Mali-400 MP and Exynos SoC. They said that an increased framerate of 70 Hz would be possible through the use of an HDMI 1.4 port.[28] The Motorola Atrix advertised in June 2011 that it was "the world's most powerful smartphone"; in August 2011 the UK Advertising Standards Authority ruled that the Atrix was not as powerful as Galaxy SII due to its faster processor.[33] A newer Samsung Galaxy S II (i9100G) uses a 1.2 Ghz dual core TI OMAP 4430 processor with PowerVR SGX540 graphics.[34] Memory The Galaxy S II has 1 GB of dedicated RAM and 16 GB of internal mass storage. Within the battery compartment there is an external microSD card slot. Display The Samsung Galaxy S II uses a 108.5-millimetre (4.27 in)[12] WVGA (800 x 480) Super AMOLED Plus capacitive touchscreen that is covered by Gorilla Glass with an oleophobic fingerprint-resistant coating. The display is an upgrade of its predecessor, and the "Plus" signifies that the display panel has done away with Pentile matrix to regular RGB matrix display which results in a 50% increase in sub-pixels. This translates to grain reduction and sharper images and text. In addition, Samsung has claimed that Super AMOLED Plus displays are 18% more power efficient than the older Super AMOLED displays.[35] Some phones have display issues, with a few users reporting a "yellow tint" on the left bottom edge of the display when a neutral grey background is displayed.[36] Audio Samsung Galaxy S II [37] The Galaxy S II uses Yamaha audio hardware. The Galaxy S II's predecessor, the original Galaxy S, used Wolfson's WM8994 DAC.[38] User feedback on Internet forums as well as an in-depth review at Clove,[37] have expressed the Yamaha chip's inferior sound quality compared to that of the Wolfson chip featured in the original Galaxy S. Camera On the back of the device is an 8-megapixel Back-illuminated sensor[39] camera with single-LED flash that can record videos in full high-definition 1080p at 30 frames per second. There is also a fixed focus front-facing 2-megapixel camera for video calling, taking photos as well as general video recording, with a maximum resolution of VGA (640×480). Connectivity The Galaxy S II is one of the earliest Android devices to natively support near field communication (NFC).[40] This follows on from the Google Nexus S which was the first de-facto NFC smartphone device.[41] It has been reported that the UK version will be supplied without an NFC chip at the beginning of its production run,[42] with an NFC-equipped version released later in 2011.[43] Page 6 of 16 Samsung has also included a new high-definition connection technology called Mobile High-definition Link (MHL). The main specialty of MHL is that it is optimized for mobile devices by allowing the device's battery to be charged while at the same time playing back multimedia content.[44] For the Galaxy S II, the industry standard micro USB port found on the bottom of the device can be used with an MHL connector for a TV out connection to an external display, such as a high definition television.[45] The micro USB port on this device also supports USB On-The-Go (USB OTG) standard which means the Galaxy S II can act as a 'host' device in the same way as a desktop computer in allowing external USB devices to be plugged in and used.[11] These external USB devices typically include USB flash drives and separately powered external hard drives. A video demonstration on YouTube[46] has shown the OTG function to be readily available with an ordinary micro USB (B-type) OTG adaptor. The same YouTube video goes on to mention a successful test completed on a 2 TB USB external hard drive (requiring own power source) but however reports of failure when trying to connect USB keyboards, tested USB mice and tested USB game pads. Currently the only file-system supported for USB drives within OTG is Fat32. A 3.5 mm TRRS headset jack is available and is located on the top side of the device. The micro USB connection port is located on the bottom side of the device. BCM4330 combo chip integrates 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0 + HS and FM radio. BCM4330 supports Wi-Fi Direct that communicate directly with one another without having to interact with an access point.[47] Accessories (optional) ¦ ¦ ¦ ¦ ¦ Dock connector for battery charging and audio-visual output[48] MHL cable which makes use of the device's micro USB port for HDMI output[48] USB OTG adaptor for use with external USB devices such as USB flash drives.[11] Stylus pen for use on the device's capacitive screen.[48] Support for a stylus on the Galaxy S II is precursor to the Samsung Galaxy Note. A number of case manufacturers have released a variety of cases for the Galaxy S II. Software Android operating system The Galaxy S II ships with Android's 2.3 (Gingerbread) installed.[4] Samsung Galaxy S II US variants begun shipments with the slightly updated Android 2.3.5 (Gingerbread) installed.[49][50] The Android 2.3.6 firmware update from Samsung was made globally available from Dec 12 2011.[51] On March 13th 2012 Samsung began to roll out upgrades to Android 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich)[52]. This was a limited release with users in Korea, Hungary, Poland and Sweden being the first to receive the update accessible via the companies own phone management software kies. Page 7 of 16 User interface The phone employs the latest proprietary Samsung TouchWiz 4.0 user interface. It follows the same principle as TouchWiz 3.0 found on the previous Galaxy but adds new improvements, such as hardware acceleration. It also has a new optional gesture based interaction called 'motion' which (among other things) allows users to zoom in and out by placing two fingers on the screen and tilting the device towards and away from you to zoom in and out respectively. This gesture function works on both the web browser and the images in gallery[53] used within this device. There have been improvements to the widgets drawer and layout in how many widgets can be added and how they are presented. Additionally there is another new optional gesture-based control called 'panning' on TouchWiz 4.0 for the movement of widgets and icons shortcuts between screens, by allowing the device to be held and moved from side to side to scroll through home screens. This gesture-based management of widgets is a new optional method next to the existing method of holding and swiping between home screens.[54] Bundled applications Four new Samsung 'Hub' applications were revealed at the 2011 Mobile World Congress: Social Hub Which integrates popular social networking services like Facebook and Twitter into one place rather than in separate applications. Readers Hub This hub provides the ability to access, read and download online newspapers, ebooks and magazines from a worldwide selection. Music Hub An application store for downloading and purchasing music tracks on the device. Samsung has teamed up with 7digital to offer this service.[55] Game Hub An application store for downloading and purchasing games. Samsung has teamed up with partners including Gameloft to offer this service.[55] Other applications More applications include Kies 2.0, Kies Air,[56] AllShare (for DLNA), Voice Recognition, Google Voice Translation,[57] Google Maps with Latitude, Places, Navigation (beta) and Lost Phone Management, Adobe Flash 10.2, QuickOffice application and 'QuickType' by SWYPE. Before launch, it was announced that Samsung had taken steps to incorporate Enterprise software for business users, which included On Device Encryption, Cisco’s AnyConnect VPN, MDM (Mobile Device Management), Cisco WebEx, Juniper,[40] and secure remote device management from Sybase.[58] Cisco’s AnyConnect VPN for Samsung devices is now currently available on Android Market,.[59] Media support The Galaxy S II comes with support for many multimedia file formats and codecs. For audio it supports FLAC, WAV, Vorbis, MP3, AAC, AAC+, eAAC+, WMA, AMR-NB, AMR-WB, MID, AC3, XMF. For video formats and codecs it supports MPEG-4, H.264, H.263, DivX HD/XviD, VC-1, 3GP (MPEG-4), WMV (ASF) as well as AVI (DivX)), MKV, FLV and the Sorenson codec. For H.264 playback, the device natively supports 8-bit encodes along with up to 1080p HD video playback. [60][61][62] Community support It was public news that Samsung sent a number of Galaxy S II devices to four developers of the CyanogenMod project, with the only request from Samsung being to bring full support of CyanogenMod to the device.[63][64] Page 8 of 16 Reception Reviews of the Galaxy S II have been positive. Engadget gave the device a 9/10, calling it "the best Android smartphone yet" and "possibly the best smartphone, period."[65] CNET UK gave the device a favorable review of 4.5/5 and described it as "one of the slimmest, lightest mobiles we've ever had the privilege to hold."[66] TechRadar gave the device 5/5 stars and describes the device as one that "set a new bar for smartphones in 2011."[67] Pocketnow was "impressed" with the speed of the web browser.[68] SlashGear states that the device "sets the benchmark for smartphones in general."[69] GSMArena points out minor drawbacks such as an "all-plastic body" and the handset having "no dedicated camera key," but still calls the handset "absurdly powerful" and concluding "we just cannot see beyond the new Samsung flagship if we're to name the ultimate smartphone."[70] After slightly over one month since its debut, more than 1 million units of Samsung Galaxy S II were activated in South Korea.[71] Worldwide, 3 million units were sold in 55 days.[72] After over 85 days of its first release, Samsung has declared global shipments of over 5 million for Galaxy S II[73] and 10 million after 5 months.[74] Partially owing to strong sales of Samsung's Galaxy range of smartphones, Samsung overtook Apple in smartphone sales during Q3 2011, with a total market share of 23.8%, compared to Apple's 14.6%.[75]. As of February 2012, Samsung has shipped over 20 million units globally. Variants Galaxy S II GT-I9100G The Samsung Galaxy S II GT-I9100G was released in late 2011, and is usually sold instead of the original GT-9100 in certain markets. It features a Texas Instruments OMAP4430 chipset instead of the Exynos chipset on the GT-I9100. It has the same 1.2GHz dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor as the GT-I9100 model, however the GPU is replaced by a PowerVR SGX 540 graphics processor. While practically equivalent, the different chipset makes this variant incompatible with custom ROMs such as CyanogenMod designed for the i9100. Galaxy R (GT-I9103) The Samsung Galaxy R is one of the currently available variants of the Galaxy S II. It was announced for releases first in Europe starting from the end of July 2011 with subsequent releases for worldwide. It features the Nvidia Tegra 2 AP20H chipset which is a 1Ghz dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor. The Galaxy R is slightly smaller in physical size along with some notable "downgraded" features.[76][77] Its differing comparable features include a 10.2 cm (4.0 in) SC-LCD capacitive touchscreen display, a 5 megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording, 8GB internal storage and a microSD memory card slot. The overall physical size and back of the design of this device differ slightly to that of the original Galaxy S II. Like Galaxy S II, the Galaxy R will also support Kies Air (PC Suite via Wi-Fi).[18][19] Galaxy W (Galaxy S II Mini) The Samsung Galaxy W I8150 is a smaller-sized 9.5 cm (3.7 in) touchscreen variant. The Galaxy W, too, is a downgrade in features to that of the Galaxy S II with the same comparable downgraded features as that of the Galaxy R. The Galaxy W and Galaxy R both feature a 'SC-LCD' capacitive touchscreen with continued 480x800 resolution, both Galaxy W and Galaxy R feature a 5 megapixel still-image camera with 720p video capture. The main differences of the Galaxy W from other variants, is that it features a 1.4 GHz Qualcomm manufactured processor, its physical design differs slightly and furthermore its screen has a higher pixel density (ppi) compared to that of the Galaxy S II and Galaxy R.[78][79] Page 9 of 16 Prior to the release of the Galaxy S II, there were speculative reports of an exact same smaller-sized, stripped down variant planned for release; in a similar example to the way the HTC HD Mini was towards the HTC HD2. The name previously rumored for this smaller Galaxy S II variant included the naming suffix of 'Mini' added the end of its name.[80][81] Galaxy S II LTE and Galaxy S II HD LTE Announced on August 28, 2011, the Galaxy S II Long Term Evolution (LTE) and Galaxy S II HD (LTE) mobile phones are part of the Galaxy S II family. They run on the Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS, have 16GB of internal memory, and feature a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor. The S II LTE has a 4.5-inch wide Super AMOLED display. The S II HD LTE features a 4.65-inch high-definition AMOLED display, offering a screen of 720x1280 pixels – 720p HD resolution.[82] Both of these variants have NFC enabled.[83] U.S. variants Sprint's Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch (SPH-D710) The Sprint version of the device, previously codenamed "Within", is known as the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch (Model SPH-D710). Unlike its predecessor, the Epic 4G, the Epic 4G Touch lacks a physical QWERTY keyboard. At 4.52 inches, it has a larger display than the international version.[84] Additionally, the Epic 4G Touch features four touchcapacitive buttons, as opposed to the hardware/capacitive button combination found on the international version. Other differences include an LED notification light, larger battery (6.66Wh), and a WiMax radio. The device was launched on September 16, 2011.[85] Unlike the T-Mobile USA and AT&T versions this particular model does not come with the NFC chip. [86] T-Mobile's Galaxy S II (SGH-T989) The T-Mobile USA version was codenamed the Samsung "Hercules" and given the model number SGH-T989 (as opposed to other phones with the Galaxy S II name which are I9100 models). It has a 4.52 inch screen, and features four touch buttons.[87] The cellular radio in this variant supports UMTS Band I (2100), Band II (1900), Band IV (1700), and Band V (850). It also contains NFC.[88] It uses a 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm APQ8060 (S3) Snapdragon processor, as opposed to the 1.2Ghz dualcore Exynos processor. The reason for this is that the Exynos processor is not compatible with T-Mobile's 42 Mbit/s HSPA+ network. As opposed to most of their other phones, T-Mobile's version was initially released with no support for Wi-Fi calling for calls on their own network, but Wi-Fi calling through third party apps such as Skype is possible. T-Mobile and Samsung released an update for Wi-Fi calling on December 15, 2011. The update is available from Samsung via KIES for the T989 and OTA (unconfirmed) from T Mobile. The S II was available for pre-order through T-Mobile's website on October 10, 2011 and became available in stores on October 12.[89] Sprint's Variant: Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch AT&T's Galaxy S II (SGH-I777) The AT&T version was codenamed "Attain" (Model SGH-I777). However, it appeared on AT&T and Samsung websites simply as the Samsung Galaxy S II. It maintains a 4.3 inch screen, but also features four touch buttons.[50] It also contains NFC.[88] It was released on October 2, 2011. Page 10 of 16 AT&T's Galaxy S II: Skyrocket (SGH-I727) This is the second variant of this phone to come to AT&T (Model SGH-I727) along with some changes. For instance, the display features the same 4.52 inch screen shared with the Sprint model. Additionally, this variant also includes LTE radio, to coincide with AT&T's launch of its LTE network. However, to make this change it was required for the SoC chipset to be changed from the Exynos to the Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8260, as the Exynos SoC does not support LTE (akin to a similar limitation made on the T-Mobile model). 'Skyrocket' was released on November 6, 2011 alongside a similar LTE-capable [HTC Vivid] at the same date. The NFC feature is not enabled. AT&T announced at its CES 2012 Developer Summit keynote that the Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD would be released early in 2012. The Skyrocket HD will be the US variant of the Galaxy S II LTE HD and will feature a 4.65" Super AMOLED Plus display that is capable of 1280x720p resolution, the same 1.5gHz processor as the Skyrocket, and an LTE radio. No release date was specified. AT&T's Samsung Captivate Glide (SGH-I927) This is the third variant to come out on AT&T (Model SGH-I927)[90] It includes a dual-core processor, but is a 1 GHz Tegra 2 processor instead of the 1.2 GHz Exynos processor. Its display is Super AMOLED is instead of Super AMOLED Plus, and the display size is reduced to 4 inches. It can record video in 720p resolution at 30 fps. Its biggest attraction is the addition of a slide-out physical QWERTY keyboard. U.S. Cellular's Samsung Galaxy S II (SCH-R760) U.S. Cellular's variant (Model SCH-R760) is the same as Sprint's Epic 4G Touch, but without the integrated WiMax radio. All other specifications remain the same. Japanese model (NTT DoCoMo) In Japan, the Galaxy S2 is known as the NTT DoCoMo SC-02C, manufactured by Samsung Electronics and branded by the DoCoMo carrier, and is the successor to the DoCoMo SC-02B (Galaxy S) within the DoCoMo Smartphone range. Released on 23 June 2011, the Japanese model includes additional features such as 1seg terrestrial television support, as well as i-mode software functions specific to DoCoMo handsets, such as i-channel, BeeTV, MelodyCall and DoCoMo map navigation. The SC-02C uses the Wnn Japanese input system, and uses the Samsung Exynos 4210 Orion Dual-core 1.2 GHz (S5PC210) processor.
