Samsung Galaxy S Plus Tipped To Have 1.4GHz CPU


Samsung’s Galaxy S series includes almost more variants than we can keep track of, and the Galaxy S 2 is just around the corner. Color us surprised, then, to see word of a Galaxy S Plus pop up with a purported release date only a month away.

The mysterious smartphone has surfaced on a Russian Samsung Livejournal group, serving as “the official representative of Samsung Electronics Russia in the community”. If what we’re being told about this model checks out, it would seem to fall somewhere between the original lineup and the S2 in terms of performance, powered by a single-core 1.4GHz processor.

The CPU boost aside, the rest of the S Plus specifications largely mirror the original S; the site reports the phone including 8GB of storage, having a four-inch Super AMOLED display, and a 1650mAh battery (a slight bump over the 1500mAh original). Model numbering would also coincide with the Galaxy S scheme, with the S Plus supposedly being I9001.

We’ll be curious to see how a 1.4GHz Galaxy measures up against the dual-core 1GHz Galaxy S 2. It doesn’t look like we’ll have to wait long, with the S II tipped for May and the S Plus reportedly due out in Russia at the end of April, carrying a price tag of nearly $850.
