Samsung has just tweaked its 2011 bestseller, Galaxy S II, into a more 2013-ish midrange handset and tagged it as Galaxy S II Plus. This native Gingerbread device will now run in the Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) version of the mobile operating system to give it a boost in functionality.
Likewise, the upgraded version of the ever popular Korean gadget will be powered by a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor that will definitely give users "a faster and more fluid experience when interacting with the handset." Apart from the "nature-inspired user-interface" which Samsung is pegging unto, this handset will still sport a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus WVGA display (480x800p).
Mobile shooters will still enjoy the mounted 8MP camera at the back of this chic device. Expect it to be reinforced with an LED flash and a 2MP front camera offering. Initially, it'll have an 8GB internal memory, expandable up to 64 GB. Connectivity ptions would still be the conventionals - WiFi, Bluetooth and NFC. Likewise, the same set of sensors will be present in this capable phone like gyro, accelerometer and proximity sensors.
If you really want a capable mid-range phone, this Galaxy is maybe for you. However, there are no details on the pricing and availability yet but well keep you posted on that part.
