Apart from the Galaxy S4 speculated to arrive in April, it looks like Samsung may have another surprise for us soon. The company is reportedly preparing to announce a new addition to its Galaxy family of Android devices – the Samsung Galaxy Pocket Plus. This entry-level handset, a successor to the original Galaxy Pocket was first spotted in a leaked ROM back in October and the only thing for now what makes us almost certain is that the device will run Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box.
Other than that, there are no other details mentioned, but since it is a follow-up to the Galaxy Pocket, we expect it to come with at least a little improved specs and features. For instance – a higher resolution display, faster processor, better camera, and stronger battery.
As a reminder, the original Samsung Galaxy Pocket features a 2.8-inch QVGA LCD display, a 2 megapixel camera with low resolution video capture, a 1200mAh battery, and 3 GB of internal memory with optional expansion up to 32 GB. The phone is powered by a single-core 832MHz processor, Android 2.3 Gingerbread and also offers HSDPA, Wi-Fi, and GPS. The fact that the Pocket Plus’s operating system is Android Ice Cream Sandwich is a good indication that the Gingerbread-running original Pocket may be getting an update too.
