Samsung has unveiled the latest addition to its popular Galaxy family, and it’s not exactly a “new” phone. Let’s go with more of “new to you” because the new device is the Samsung Galaxy S II Plus, and it is essentially just a slightly upgraded/updated Galaxy S II. The device has the same 4.3″ WVGA Super AMOLED Plus display that it’s older brother (er, twin brother?) features. It has a 1.2GHz processor (exact model not yet specified), an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and 1GB of onboard RAM. Not too shabby Samsung, but really? Do we really need a phone with just updated RAM and camera? I suppose Samsung thought the same thing because the biggest change is the inclusion of the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. As far as we can tell, it will feature an overlayed UI (Samsung TouchWiz), but the exact specifications still haven’t been fully released.
There hasn’t been a word yet from Samsung about which carriers you can find the new (er, old?) device, or the pricing of the device just yet, but we will be sure to update you the minute we get word about them.
