Today, Samsung has announced a new addition to its popular Galaxy line of smartphones, the Galaxy S II Plus. The new device will look to build on its popular predecessor by adding new features to increase usability and functionality.
The handset will offer the same 4.3-inch display seen its processor with a 800 x 400 pixel resolution and the same 8-megapixel rear facing camera as well.
However, the device will offer a new 1.2GHz dual-core processor, with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of built-in storage, and a 1,650 mAh battery. The Galaxy S II Plus will also ship with the latest addition of Google’s Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) Operating System, complete with the latest TouchWiz UI offering additional S-Vice, voice unlock, and popup video features.
With the rumored Galaxy S IV set to debut at World Mobile Congress in February, Samsung is likely offering the revamped Galaxy S II Plus as mid-tier device between upcoming S IV and the Galaxy S III mini.
Samsung will offer the Galaxy S II Plus in two color versions, white and dark blue. Unfortunately, the company has yet to state when we can expect the handset to be released and how much it will cost.
