Samsung today announced the Galaxy S II Plus, an updated version of its 2011 smash hit smartphone. The biggest differences between the original S II and the S II Plus are the software. The S II Plus ships with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and the most current version of Samsung's TouchWiz user interface. The S II Plus also gains the pop-up video feature that's available on the Note II. The internals have been given a slight upgrade, as well. The S II Plus has a 4.3-inch WVGA Super-AMOLED Plus display, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and an 8-megapixel main camera. It ships with 8GB of onboard storage, and supports microSD cards. It supports HSPA+ in the 850/900/1900/2100MHz bands, which makes it compatible with the 3G networks run by AT&T and T-Mobile. Pricing and availability were not disclosed.

just the software?

so i have a galaxy s II the same model

does this mean it is pretty much the same thing as this?

I've looked at the specifications, it's just the same as my Galaxy S II i9100--the camera, the ram, the memory, the processor... And since I've rooted the leaked official Jelly Bean 4.1.2, it seems that there's nothing different between the two. I'm n...

Very good use of keeping with an already great phone and giving it a makeover without totally overhauling it. No need to have the newest when you can keep with a proven model enhanced
Yeah the GS II has always been a great phone. I have several buddies who have them and they work flawlessly. Honestly, with the price difference and the feature difference, the GS II might be better than the GS III purely on value.

Perfect for ppl who want unlocked, unlimited service

Especially at the lower cost, an unlocked version of the S2+ would be perfect for people who just want a good unlocked Android phone for cheap, so they can get OFF their contract(s) and ON to an inexpensive (but unlimited) plan! Go see how:

cheap is $100.00 or less, I wouldn't call a $250 or $300 smartphone cheap by any means.

Should have been based on T-Mo's version

It had a bigger screen and battery
I like the i9100, and its probably based off of that. As well as having the Exynos CPU. Bought one in the summer of 2011, use it as a swap when i don't care to use my Note 2. I keep an sim adaptor in it.

Yeah it doesn't have a quadcore cpu, or N...
