Samsung announces Jelly Bean Galaxy SII Plus smartphone

Samsung has just unleashed its latest Samsung Galaxy S Android powered smartphone, but unfortunately its not the rumoured Galaxy S4 offering that we are all waiting for, but in fact the Samsung Galaxy S2!

Well, technically it’s the Samsung Galaxy SII Plus, which is a slightly updated version of Samsung’s megastar handset from 2011 that will be added into Samsung mid range of handsets.

The new Galaxy SII Plus features a 4.3-inch WVGA (800 x 480) Super AMOLED Plus display, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, and 1GB of RAM. The handset comes running the updated Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean OS with Samsung’s Touchwiz UI, which will also feature some of the ‘Inspired by Nature’ features.

Additionally, you will get an 8-megapixel camera on the rear with a decent 2-megapixel front-facing camera for video calling and self-shots.

The SII Plus comes with a decent 8GB of built-in storage plus a Micro SD card slot for storage that can be expanded up to 64GB to really bolster your memory options. You get some pretty high quality connectivity too, with HSPA+ and Wi-Fi support, but sadly no NFC or 4G is included.

There is currently no official pricing and availability information, but hopefully the handset will land in the top end of the mid-range smartphone market in the next few months.

Would you take a step back to the Galaxy S2 Plus, or will you be holding out for the incoming Samsung Galaxy SIV?
