Rumors about a sequel to the Samsung Galaxy S II have been circulating for some time and as new year approaches we have more details. The successor will be called Galaxy S II Plus and will be launched in the first quarter of 2013, probably in mid-January or February. The Galaxy S II Plus will reportedly launched in two versions GT-i9105 and GT-i9105P, which will be identical except for the latter featuring an NFC chip.
What to expect from the Galaxy S II Plus
Although the Samsung Galaxy S II is a Plus model, do not expect spectacular improvements. The handset will come with a 4.3-inch display with 800 x 480 pixels, 8 megapixel rear camera with flash, 2 megapixel front-facing camera and 1650 mAh battery.
The processor will get a slight downgrade and will be a 1 GHz dual-core one instead of a 1.2 GHz unit, and the internal memory will be only 8 GB. Good news is that the Galaxy S II Plus will ship with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box. So far there is no word on where the new handsets will be available, and neither for what price.
