Expected to be released sometime next year, the unannounced Samsung Galaxy S II Plus will reportedly have two versions: GT-i9105, and GT-i9105P – the latter coming with an NFC chip.
Although it’s a Plus edition of the original S II i9100, the i9105 doesn’t seem to bring superior specs. On the contrary, its processor is a 1GHz dual-core one (instead of a 1.2GHz unit), and the internal memory is only 8GB. Still, the good thing about the S II Plus is that it will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box. Other than that, it should feature a 4.3 inch display with 800 x 480 pixels, 8MP rear camera with Flash, 2MP front-facing camera, and a case that measures 125.3 x 66.1 x 8.98 mm.
Samsung could officially present the Galaxy S II Plus GT-i9105 and GT-i9105P as soon as next month (January). At the moment, there’s no word on where the new handsets will be available, and neither for what price. In any case, this is what both versions should look like:
Another “Plus” Android smartphone that should be introduced by Samsung next year is the Galaxy Pocket Plus S5301. This, of course, should be the successor to the low-end Galaxy Pocket S5300 launched in March running Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
