Earlier today Samsung confirmed that we wouldn’t be seeing the Galaxy S3 at Mobile World Congress. However, the manufacturer could still be preparing to launch an improved version of the Galaxy S2 at the Barcelona tech expo, dubbed the Samsung Galaxy S2 Plus.
That’s according to Pocketnow, who spotted a phone labelled the “Galaxy S 2+” in An3DBenchXL’s benchmark database. This speed-testing tool also revealed some possible specs for the yet-unannounced smartphone, including Android 2.3.5 (Gingerbread) and an improved 1.5GHz dual-core processor. However, the S2 Plus will also supposedly tout a 480 x 800 WVGA touchscreen – which sees no improvement on the original flagship.
It’s totally feasible that the S2 Plus is coming, though, as Samsung last year released the Samsung Galaxy S Plus handset, and upgraded version of its original Galaxy S. This Vodafone exclusive improved on the original with an upgraded version of Android and a bumped-up 1.4GHz single-core processor – the same specs supposedly improved on the mooted Samsung Galaxy S2 Plus.
We’ll bring you more details as soon as we get them.
