Samsung Galaxy S II needs no introduction! It is the successor of the original Galaxy S and the first Android smartphone to cross the 10 million mark. This handset was originally launched with the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) OS and the newer Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) update is already on its way.
Samsung has just introduced a new variant of the Galaxy S II smartphone. No prizes for guessing the name! The Samsung Galaxy S II Plus packs almost same specs from the original Galaxy S II in the same old design, except the fact that the device will be shipped with the newer Android 4.1 OS and Samsung’s latest Touchwiz Nature UX out-of-the-box. Sadly, the internal memory on this device has been reduced from 16 GB to just 8 GB.
Samsung Galaxy S II Plus features a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Plus display, sporting a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels, 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) OS, TouchWiz 4.0 user interface, 8 megapixel rear-facing camera with autofocus and LED flash, full HD (1080p) video recording and playback, 2 megapixel front-facing camera for video calls, 8 GB internal memory, microSD card slot, 64 GB expandable memory and much more.
Other features include a 3.5 mm headset jack, Stereo FM Radio with RDS, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, 3G Connectivity, Samsung Media Hub, Samsung Social Hub, Samsung Kies Air, Google Play Store, full HTML web browser, DLNA, HDMI out, Bluetooth 3.0 with EDR, 1 GB RAM, NFC (Near Field Communication), Wi-Fi Direct, up to 610 hrs of stand-by time, up to 8 hrs 40 mins of talk-time and a 1650 mAh battery.
Apart from that, the rear camera features a zero-lag shutter speed that captures moving objects easily without delay. The popup video feature allows you to play a video anywhere on the screen in a resizable pop-up window while simultaneously running other tasks. The price and availability of this device will be announced soon.
