The Galaxy S2 Plus has been officially announced by Samsung today, so now we can finally make a proper idea about this new, if we can call it new, Android based smartphone. You see, the S2 Plus is not what most of us expected, as the phone is actually very similar with the original model, the Galaxy S2. The specs are almost the same, while the features are notable only if you take a look over the version of the Android system, which of course is the latest variant of Jelly Bean.
As you can see in the image from below, the Galaxy S2 Plus design is the same with the S2 one, there are no changes in this section. The Plus will be featuring the same 4.3 inch WVGA Super AMOLED Plus display, so those who were expecting to see a larger screen on this device will be disappointed.
Also, if we concentrate on the specs side, we can notice that the handset is bringing a dual-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, only 1 GB of RAM, an 8 MP camera on the back along with a 2 MP front facing one, only 8 GB of internal storage memory and a microSD card slot; furthermore, apparently there will be two versions available, an NFC and a non-NFC one.
Now, as mentioned in the introduction, the Samsung Galaxy S2 Plus will be featuring the latest version of the Android system, the Jelly Bean 4.1.2 flavor (updated to 4.2 when available) along with Samsung’s Touchwiz Nature UX.
That’s all we could find out so far, so there are still no words about the Galaxy S2 Plus release date, future availability on the market or pricing offers, but fresh news about the same are highly expected. Well, what do you say, are you willing to buy the improved model of the original SGS2, or you rather wait for a better device (probable more expensive too), such as the Xperia Z, or even the highly rumored and already expected Galaxy S4?
