Samsung Galaxy S II Plus might come in early 2013 with Jelly Bean
The Galaxy S II was Samsung’s 2011 flagship, but it might get resurrected in 2013 in a mid-ranger named the Samsung Galaxy S II Plus, according to an anonymous source speaking for Sam Mobile. We can’t say how trustworthy this is, but we have already heard about such a device, and last month it even appeared on the AnTuTu benchmark, so we wouldn’t rule it out.

The possible arrival of the Galaxy S II Plus would mean that Samsung is adopting a very Apple-like and actually pretty logical approach to the market. What do we mean? Simple, Apple is using its older high-end products to today’s mid-range. Often, Apple would even pick up an old technology like the iPad 2 and use its screen and processor in new products like the iPad mini. This allows it to save some resources and be certain that there will be less or no manufacturing problems.

The original Samsung Galaxy S II was a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and a 4.3-inch 480x800-pixel Super AMOLED Plus display. The new Galaxy S II Plus may or may not come with similar characteristics, but rumor has it that it will feature Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, and Samsung’s Nature UX skin.

The device should be announced in December or January, if those whispers about it are true, so stay tuned.
