There has been a lot of speculation about the Samsung Galaxy S II Plus, going as far back as February 2012. However, back in November, it appeared pretty certain that we’ll see this phone early 2013; without any mention of it at the ongoing CES in Las Vegas, Samsung has just announced the smartphone via a press release.
It’s not a huge step-up from the original Galaxy S II — and some might even debate the other way around. We’ve got a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen with WVGA resolution of 480 x 800 pixels, a 1.2 GHz Dual Core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage (upgradable via microSD card up to 64GB), eight-megapixel main shooter at the back, two-megapixel front-facer, 1,650mAh battery, plus all the usual suspects, including NFC and Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with Samsung’s own TouchWiz Nature UX UI on top of it. There’s no word yet on pricing and availability but we’ll definitely keep you posted as soon as we find out.
