Samsung announces Galaxy S II Plus

Written by Slobodan Simic



Updates a golden oldie


Since the Galaxy S II was a big hit for Samsung, it is no wonder that the company wants to squeeze a bit more cash from the aging name and has released a new Samsung Galaxy S II Plus running on an updated OS, slightly different design and a new chipset.

Based around the same 4.3-inch 800x480 (217ppi) Super AMOLED touchscreen, the new Galaxy S II Plus uses a new chipset with dual-core Cortex-A9 CPU clocked at 1.2GHz and paired up with a Broadcomm GPU and 1GB of RAM. The rest of the specs are pretty much the same as on the original Galaxy S II so you are looking at 8MP rear cam with 1080p video recording, 2MP front camera, 802.11abgn WiFi, HSPA+, Bluetooth 3.0+HS connectivity, 8GB of internal storage expandable by microSD card slot.

Samsung also threw in optional NFC support that will be available on the I9105P SKU which makes the phone slightly thicker at 8.9mm as opposed to 8.5mm on the original I9105 Galaxy S II Plus. The battery on both models is the same 1650mAh one.

The actual design is slightly changed as well as Samsung decided to use the "hyperglazed" plastic already seen on the Galaxy S III and it will be available in Chic White and Dark Blue colors.

Of course, original Samsung Galaxy S II will also get the Jelly Bean update pretty soon and will probably feature the latest Nature UX features that come with Galaxy S II Plus.

Unfortunately, the price or the launch date has not been revealed.
