With the release of the Samsung Galaxy S III, everyone would have thought that its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S II, will slowly fade into the sunset and be eventually forgotten. Samsung appears to have a different plan for the Galaxy S II. Samsung is apparently planning on releasing an upgraded Galaxy S II called the Samsung Galaxy S II Plus. This is consistent with Samsung’s strategy of releasing slightly upgraded devices.
Alleged specs and photos of the rumored Galaxy S II Plus have surfaced and the renders look good. The Galaxy S II Plus has ditched the physical home button and the bump in the back has been significantly reduced. The Galaxy S II Plus will reportedly feature a 4.5-inch AMOLED display and will run on a dual-core 1.5GHz Exynos CPU paired with 1GB of RAM. Built-in storage will be 16GB but expandable via microSD, and the handset will feature an 8-megapixel rear camera. None of these specs are confirmed for now so they might still change by the time the handset is officially announced by Samsung. If the Galaxy S II Plus is priced aggressively, we might see another hit from Samsung.
