Description

Samsung just announced the rumored Galaxy S II Plus on the hush-hush, and the specs don't differ from the ones it had on its 2011 flagship, but the phone is breathed new life by loading it from the get-go with Android 4.1.2. It also supplied it with its latest Nature UX interface, which features options like Smart Stay that keeps the screen on when you are are looking at it, and PopUp Play, which detaches the current video in a separate hover window, so you can do something else underneath. Other than that, the specs stay a 4.3" WVGA Super AMOLED Plus display, 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, a gig of RAM, 8 GB of storage plus a microSD slot, 21Mbps HSPA+ radio, and an 8 MP rear camera with zero shutter lag this time.
