Samsung Galaxy Y Plus is now official in India

Although all eyes are now at the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S 4, which is bound to be announced tomorrow, there's one more new device that the Korean company has in stock for us. Meet the Samsung Galaxy Y Plus – supposedly an upgrade to the Galaxy Y, which is already listed on the company's Indian web page.
However, looking at its specs sheet we find it strange that the Samsung Galaxy Y Plus is only marginally better than its predecessor. In fact, the newer model is thicker and comes with a smaller screen. There is a modest, 2.8-inch LCD touchscreen on its front with resolution of 240 by 320 pixels. Under the hood runs a single-core 850MHz processor, which is unlikely to impress anyone with its performance. Many of the device's characteristics remain unchanged, including the 2MP main camera, 1,200mAh battery, weight of about 100 grams, 4GB of native storage and slot for microSD cards. There's also support for Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G connectivity, and use of 2 SIM cards simultaneously. Out of the box you get Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which is anything but a recent version of the platform, but it is still better than Gingerbread.
The price of the Samsung Galaxy Y Plus in India is projected to be around 8,000 rupees, which equals to a tad below $150. Whether the smartphone will ever be released in other markets isn't certain at this time.
