Samsung Galaxy S II Plus might be on the way with beefier 1.5GHz silicon
Samsung's new naming scheme has a special "Plus" category for rehashing of existing devices with speedier processors, larger batteries, more memory and so on. After the original Galaxy S, it outed Galaxy S Plus, for example, with 1.4GHz CPU instead of 1GHz, and larger battery, other things being equal.

Now Samsung might have decided to breathe new life in its extremely popular Galaxy S II the same way by following up with a Galaxy S II Plus, where the CPU is bumped to 1.5GHz, instead of the current 1.2GHz. Thus it will be clocked higher than the more recent Galaxy Note with its 1.4GHz Exynos processor, keeping the bragging rights.

The device has appeared on An3DBenchXL's scores website, allegedly uploaded by Samsung testers. It's listed as the Samsung Galaxy S 2+, but we can imagine how someone could have shortened the official name to get the results quicker. The rest of the specs stay the same - WVGA display and Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

T-Mobile's version of the SGSII is clocked at 1.5GHz with a Qualcomm chipset, whereas Sprint's upcoming Galaxy Nexus is also clocked at 1.5GHz, but most likely still featuring a TI OMAP chipset. If the Galaxy S II Plus is outed with a 1.5GHz Exynos, it will be the highest clock of Samsung's own line of mobile processors so far, at least until the SGS III.
