It's not likely going to be more processor cores, though it could be a bump in clock speed. I think they'll need LTE as to not be a step backwards, and they're not putting an additional 1GB of RAM if it already has 1GB. All that leaves is the display size/resolution and SA HD has been leaked all over the place at this point. It seems inevitable.
Superb analysis Kyler, thx. It's weird to consider the Charge's SAMOLED+ screen being the weak link in an SGS2 type phone, but I'd agree that a higher res screen is more likely than other improvements. I'd be pleasantly surprised if we receive something faster than 1.2GHz Exynos as Sammy's first dual-core LTE.
Perhaps a different body necessitated by LTE could explain the non-identical aspect, although Celox seems to suggest thinness and LTE aren't mutually exclusive.
