With the Galaxy Note II hype at its max, no one is thinking about any other Samsung product right now, but they should, since there’s at least one new interesting model to have a glance at. I’m talking about the Samsung Galaxy S II Plus, pictured below, courtesy of a leak from Chilean carrier VTR.


They’ve posted information and pics of the new phone on their site ahead of any form of launch from Samsung. The device looks very much like the T-Mobile version of the Galaxy S II (T989) and also has similar specs. We’re dealing with a handset that packs a 4.52 inch display, with a 800 x 480 pixel resolution and Super AMOLED Plus technology. Inside there’s a 1.5 GHz dual core CPU, 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage, as well as a microSD card slot and an 8 megapixel camera at the back.

Galaxy S II Plus is rumored to be running Android 4.0 ICS, which the T989 did not. Interestingly enough, VTR posted a link to the T-Mobile page of the T989 Galaxy S II, so this is in fact a rebranded version of the T989 for the international market. Not sure if this model is worth the Plus name, since aside from the bigger display it doesn’t have anything extra…
