From the forum:
Samsung today announced yet another Galaxy smartphone. Has Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and more memory but little else has improved compared to the two year old original

Samsung Galaxy S II Plus announced 

This is not a re-post of the announcement made two years ago. Do we relay need another Galaxy from the past? Samsung obviously believes so. The Samsung Galaxy S II Plus announced today has not added much to the evolution of mobile phones. What used to be the world's thinnest smartphone measuring 8.49mm is today considered a normal size. The older Galaxy S II had the size 125.3 x 66.1 x 8.49 mm and Samsung has used the same mould to create the new Galaxy S II Plus.

The display size is still 4.3 inches with a 480 x 800 pixel resolution. There is a 8 megapixel camera on board which will record Full HD 1080p video. The new Galaxy S II Plus has got a little more internal storage from 2 GB to 8 GB. This is still expandable with microSD card. Galaxy S II Plus has gained some weight going up from 116 gram to 121 gram. Galaxy S II Plus ships with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

In February 2011, a smartphone with specification such as the Galaxy S II was a high-end smartphone. Today, the same specs are considered mid-end and the price will most likely be reasonable.

The original S II still sells well and this one might be popular too It is a huge marked out there and most people can┬Ęt afford those hi-end phones.
