Back in January, Samsung announced the Galaxy S II Plus smartphone. This handset packs almost same specs from the original Galaxy S II, except the fact that this device will be shipped with the newer Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) Operating System and Samsung’s latest Touchwiz Nature UX out-of-the-box. It also comes with a popup video feature which allows you to play a video anywhere on the screen in a resizable pop-up window while simultaneously running other tasks.
