Behold II features
Although, Behold II is touted to be the upgraded version of the original Behold model, the marked technical differences between the original Behold and its successor make Behold II altogether a unique handset. Behold II is 0.5-inch longer and 0.3 grams heavier that the original Behold model.
The mystic brown color scheme and the curved edges of the handset make Behold II a pretty phone. Samsung has upgraded the display of the latest Behold handset. Behold II sports 3.2 inches, 320 x 480 pixels AMOLED display. With the AMOLED screen, Behold II will display crispier images, which you can view with least eyestrain.

The unique Cube Navigation Menu presents the multimedia applications installed in the smartphone in a 3D cube format. Behold II sports a 5-megapixel camera fitted with auto focus, LED flash and digital zoom.
The integrated multimedia player supports audio and video playback. Compared to its predecessor, Behold II has incorporated greater internal storage space.
