Samsung Galaxy S II Plus on the cards?

Samsung Galaxy S II Plus on the cards?Not to sound like a broken record, but we’re still not happy about the lack of Samsung Galaxy S III action at Mobile World Congress. Bums.

However, Samsung did console us with a promise to debut other “exciting new mobile products”. Might one of those be the Samsung Galaxy S II Plus?

The device has popped up by way of an An3DBenchXL benchmark entry, going by the name “Galaxy S 2+”, with an 800*480 resolution, Android 2.3.4 (Gingerbread) and a 1.5GHz – presumably dual-core – processor.

Samsung is no stranger to variants of existing phones. The Samsung Galaxy S has had a Plus injection (i.e. 1.4GHz processor), and the other day we heard whispers of a dual-core Samsung Galaxy S Advance.

Another possibility for Mobile World Congress is the monstrous Samsung Galaxy Tab 11.6in. I don’t much fancy making Skype calls on that bad boy.

We’ll be kicking Sammo staff in the shins and making woeful attempts to flirt with Samsung girls in… just over three weeks.

Samsung are going to "do an HTC", aka nosedive after a year of success, I can feel it.

SGS2+ my ar*e, my S2 runs happily at 1.6ghz already, this is a total con.

As for that picture, it resembles a f*ck ugly, melted in the middle S2 with stupid buttons.

I'm genuinely considering an iPhone 5...if it's as much of a jump from the 4S to 5 as it was from the 3GS to the 4, I may well be interested on a hardware level ;).

Yes, what a pointless excercise. HTC at least went to the trouble of sticking a red "B" on the Sensation XE....

Pretty much as soon as the XE launched there was a ROM available to turn a standard Sensation into an XE on a hardware level.

To make an S2+ would require even less of a change, you'd only need a new kernel, not an entire ROM, to turn an original S2 into an S2+. Hell, here's a link to a rock-stable 1.6ghz kernel for the original S2 for anyone reading this in the future after the S2+ has launched:

Save yourself some cash, OC a standard S2. No need to thank me ;).
