The Samsung Galaxy SII is one of Samsung’s most popular phones to date, and it’s no wonder that the company will want to relive that heyday — although the Samsung Galaxy SII TV has little in common with the former flagship.

Featuring a 4-inch display capable of a resolution of 800×480, the Samsung Galaxy SII TV has a little trick up its sleeve — being that it features a small antenna for watching live TV.

The retractable antenna supports the ISDB-T broadcasting standard, which means you’ll be able to watch live TV on the go without it costing you a single penny.

The spec sheet isn’t going to blow you away with a 1GHz dual-core processor, 4GB of storage, a 5 megapixel snapper, microSD card slot, a 1500 mAh battery and Android 4.2.2 — but this isn’t meant to be a beastly device.

The Samsung Galaxy SII has been designed for the Brazillian market, and will come with dual-SIM capabilities — but don’t expect to be getting your hands on with the device if you live anywhere other than Brazil.
