Other manufacturers might be busying showing-off their flagship devices at CES 2013, but Samsung has taken a different route by announcing Galaxy S II Plus today. Powered by Jelly Bean and a dual-core processor, Galaxy S II Plus does not really add any pluses to the original Galaxy S II.
The smartphone features a 4.3-inch WVGA(480×800) Super AMOLED Plus display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 8MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, FM Radio, 1GB RAM, 8GB of internal storage, and 1,650 mAh battery.
It is likely to join Galaxy S III mini in the mid-range segment of the Korean manufacturer’s smartphone portfolio.
Samsung is releasing two variants of the phone, with and without NFC. The NFC variant will be 0.4mm thicker; the rest of the dimensions will remain same. It will be sold in white and dark blue colours.
The original Galaxy S II was launched back in April 2011 and turned out to one of the biggest selling smartphones from the company.
There is no word on the pricing of release date right now, but we expect to see the phone on sale in next few weeks.
