Samsung Galaxy S2 Plus with Android Jelly Bean launched
Samsung unveils Android Jelly Bean-powered Galaxy S2 Plus reboot
Samsung is rebooting the Galaxy S2 with the announcement of the Galaxy S2 Plus.
Following on from the Galaxy S Plus, the Galaxy S2 Plus is based on the Galaxy S2 but it has been extensively tweaked with an updated design, a processor boost and a new version of Android.
The 8.5mm thick chassis now uses the Galaxy S3’s ‘hyperglaze’ glossy plastic, available in white or blue.
Internally it has a new 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM, the battery has been jumped up to 1,750mAh and there will be a variant with NFC.
The rest of the hardware spec from the AMOLED display to the storage and cameras is the same as the original Galaxy S2.
On the software front it’ll use Android Jelly Bean 4.1 with Samsung’s TouchWiz Nature UX featuring Smart Stay, Page Buddy and a range of other Samsung special features.
Samsung hasn’t revealed pricing information or availability for the Galaxy S2 Plus but considering the company’s approach with the Galaxy S Plus we’d expect it to hit a wide range of regions including the UK fairly soon at an affordable price point.
We’ll bring you more details as we hear them.
