Samsung continues unabated on its quest to serve a colossal range of Galaxy smartphones (and tablets) to cater for any and all needs. Hey, it’s a tactic that’s clearly paying off.
Not content with the 197 new Galaxy smartphones already launched in 2012, the rumour mill is hearing tales of something called the Samsung Galaxy S II Plus, and – yes, there’s more – the Samsung Galaxy S III mini.
Starting with the smaller guy, the Samsung Galaxy S III mini is, as the name suggests, a bit like the Samsung Galaxy S III, ‘cept, er, smaller.
However, while “mini” used to imply something in the 3in arena (the original Samsung Galaxy mini was 3.14in), the Samsung Galaxy S III mini is thought to have a 4in WVGA Super AMOLED display. Not so "mini" after all.
With other Samsung Galaxy S III mini specs tipped to include a dual-core processor (probably something Exynos-flavoured) and 5MP rear camera, it’s starting to sound a heck of a lot like the Samsung Galaxy S Advance.
Meanwhile, Chilean carrier VTR has let slip details of the Samsung Galaxy S II Plus. It’s said to rock a 4.5in AMOLED display, dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage, an 8MP rear camera, and Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0).
It’s not clear if either of these chaps is destined for the UK, but it’s probably fair to say that you fiends are more interested in the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, right?
