Samsung Galaxy S Plus packs beefier hardware inside the shell of the original model
There is absolutely no hiding the fact that Samsung is making the Galaxy S II its number one priority right now, however, you just can’t help it to step back for a moment and see how the original model paved the way for it. Sure it’s over a year old and its specs are regarded to be as mid-range by now, but nevertheless, there are always different ways to bring the spotlight back to it.

Interestingly enough, it appears that the original model is getting a slight refresh in the form of the Samsung Galaxy S Plus – and boy does that plus mean more! Specifically, it retains the shell and design of the original, but underneath it all, it’s packing some beefier specs to perk up the interest of some people. From the looks of it, the Galaxy S Plus features a faster 1.4GHz single-core processor, larger 1,650 mAh battery, and it runs Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread right from the start.

Obviously, recent buyers of the original model (and its variants) might be crying right now knowing that this one is coming to market. As it stands for right now, Vodafone is going to be the exclusive carrier for the handset, but it’ll be interesting to see how Samsung plays out its cards in bringing this device to other markets. In fact, Vodafone is selling the handset for free on plans that start at £30 per month.

Although it might not compete with the likes of some dual-core packing smartphones out there, it will easily nestle into the mid-range market for those who don’t want something too high-end. Any takers?
