To me it just looks like a cheapo Samsung galaxy SII. I would be really worried about battery life and GPU performance, but hey, let's wait for the reviews for a final saying.
I only expect that they don't try to sell it with an initial price higher than the S2 like they did with the SIII mini!

Just knowing that Jellybean is rolling out to the Galaxy S II users as we speak, I would rather get the original Galaxy S II with the Exynos processor.

Seems a little pointless to me.

Disappointing ! We are not idiot. SS thinks if they carry the name, people will buy all the s**t they produce. they are just ruining their greatest smartphone S2.

PA, I've been meaning to say this for a while now: your Galaxy S III side-view size-comparison image is WAY off, to the point where it, despite being 0.34" thick, is apparently much thinner than the 0.31" thick One S.

I honestly don't see the point of the Galaxy S II Plus. I know for a fact that Virgin Mobile USA is selling the Spring version of the GS2 and Straight Talk has it as well. And plus, since JB is coming to the GS2, I don't get the point of this "Plus" version if nothing new was brought to the table.
