With Samsung’s next-generation flagship phone already making the rumor rounds, I don’t know how many of you still remember the Galaxy S2. That was Sammy’s top-tier device last year, but a lot of things happened since then, making the once upon a time high-ender no more than a mid-ranger these days.
Still, Samsung might be looking to bring some of the old S2 magic back, with a handheld called the Galaxy S2 Plus. This is rumored to be coming in “early 2013”, and, as you might have already guessed, it should be a slightly upgraded version of the 2011 phone.
Sources close to SamMobile claim that the upcoming device will run Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean while having only 8 GB of on-board storage. Early leaks already pointed at the featuring of a dual-core 1.5 GHz Exynos processor, 1 GB of RAM, an 8 MP rear-facing camera and a 4.52-inch screen, so all in all this new guy is set to be a middle-end device as well. But in that case, is an S2 Plus really needed or is Samsung overestimating its fans’ dedication to the company?
