One year after the launch of the legendary Galaxy S terminal, Samsung released an updated version called S Plus, which was designed to make the most of the good name of the base model. The South Korean manufacturer is currently preparing a Plus version for the Galaxy S II also, and it will be, as in the first case, a slightly improved version.
The continuation of the famous Galaxy S II GT-I9105, the Samsung Galaxy S II Plus, will offer a screen with a higher resolution that jumps from 480 x 800 pixels of the original model to 540 x 960 pixels. But more interesting is the hardware platform, the GL Benchmark data indicating a processor clocked at 1.4 GHz and a PowerVR SGX544 MP graphics processor.
The only chip currently available that uses this graphics core is Texas Instruments OMAP 4470, a solution adopted also by Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 inch, and it includes a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 core processor, a powerful graphics core from PowerVR and a 2D accelerator from Vivante. The remaining specifications of the new Samsung Galaxy S II Plus also include a Super AMOLED panel with a screen diagonal of 4.65 inch, 1GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage supplemented by a MicroSD slot and an 8MP camera sensor.
The first rumors about the Samsung Galaxy S II Plus model emerged during the month of august and online scores obtained in the GL Benchmark test by this model suggests that the final product is far from an official announcement.
