The rumored Galaxy S II Plus has reappeared, this time on the website of a Chilean mobile carrier which posted a complete page for it.
The Galaxy S II Plus is essentially the Galaxy S II with a larger screen. Furthermore, the phone looks a lot like the T-Mobile Galaxy S II (T989).
This may seem odd for Samsung to introduce a refreshed version of the Galaxy S II, especially since the Galaxy S III is already out, but the company may have its reasons.
The Galaxy S II is selling quite well still. This is why Samsung has been reported in the past to be working on the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update of the smartphone.
Samsung may be thinking of capitalizing on the popularity of its previous flagship handset hence the Galaxy S II Plus.
Furthermore, Samsung may be targeting this device for markets which have not yet been fully diluted by the Galaxy line of smartphones and tablets.
Meanwhile, the new images and specifications for the rumored Galaxy S II Plus comes from VTR which has a dedicated page for it currently up now on their website.
The phone is equipped with a 4.52-inch Super AMOLED Plus 16-million-color screen just like the T989. Sadly though, the screen only has a measly 800 x 480 pixels screen which is small when you take into consideration that this is a 4.5-inch screen.
It does have, however, a powerful dual-core Exynos processor clocked at 1.5GHz. It will also sport 1GB in RAM plus 16GB of internal memory. That storage can be complemented by up to 32GB in microSD external memory.
On the front of the device are four capacitive keys although this will be powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich straight out of the box.
The Galaxy S II Plus on the VTR site is only available in black and will measure 130.5 x 69.7 x 9.52 mm and weigh 132 g.
As for imaging, the front of the device has a camera although it is unclear now whether it would be a VGA unit or a 1.3-megapixel unit. It does, however, have an 8-megapixel rear-facing snapper equipped with LED flash.
Physically, the Galaxy S II Plus shown on the site has a volume rocker on the left side and a power switch on the right side. These are both on the smooth and flat trim surrounding the device.
