Samsung announces Galaxy S II Plus
10 January 2013 by Olav Hellesø-Knutsen
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
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.

I fail to see the point.
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¨t afford those hi-end phones.
