Samsung Galaxy S II Plus and the two SIM Grand Duos snapped silly

8

What's the story here, Samsung? A Galaxy S II Plus has been spy-snapped, as well as the rumored downmarket Note II, at the name of the Galaxy Grand Duos, which was said to feature two SIM card slots and a stylus.

The S II Plus is allegedly graced with Android Jelly Bean and sports the same 4.3" WVGA screen we have on the S II, but the dual-core processor clocks slightly down at 1 GHz, while we still have an 8 MP rear camera with flash. It would weigh 121 grams, with 125.3 x 66.1 x 8.98 mm dimensions, which makes it slightly heavier and thicker than last year's Galaxy S II. The Plus is expected to appear before year-end, and we'd wager to bet it might be a simple rehash for emerging markets.

The Grand Duos is the more interesting one, as it supposedly features a frugal 4.5" WVGA screen, dual-core 1.2 GHz CPU, 8 MP rear camera, 2 MP front-facer and Android Jelly Bean, too. The eventual stylus is not confirmed in this latest leak, but two SIM card slots are.

China is the source of these news about a Galaxy S II Plus and Grand Duos, so it is most likely that the carriers there will be the ones exclusively offering the two handsets, but let's what happens if/when Samsung makes them official.
