Last year, Samsung launched the Galaxy Mini S5570 under a different name in India: Galaxy Pop. Now it looks like a slightly upgraded version of the handset is about to be introduced.
Called Samsung Galaxy Pop Plus S5570i, the new phone has appeared over at Indian retailer Flipkart, and it doesn’t look different from the original model. However, it comes with a more powerful processor (832MHz vs. 600MHz).
The weird part is that Flipkart says the Galaxy Pop Plus S5570i runs Android 2.2 Froyo – but this has to be a mistake, since the older S5570 has been already updated to Android 2.3 Gignerbread in some markets.
Flipkart is asking 8,330 INR (about $169) for the Samsung Galaxy Pop Plus S5570i, without saying when the device will be available. I guess it will happen soon anyway.
