Samsung Galaxy S2 Plus image & specs leaks online

The image on the left leaked online way back in February

Thanks to VTR, a mobile carrier in Chile, an image of the Samsung Galaxy S2 Plus has surfaced online which closely resembles a leaked press image from Samsung that was leaked all the way back in February by a Russian blogger.

Although the rounded corners appear to be heavily influenced by lawyers, along with the image a few specs were also revealed which indicate that the Samsung Galaxy S2 Plus will come with a larger 4.5″ AMOLED touchscreen display, in addition to being paired with a dual-core 1.5GHz Exynos processor.

According International Business Times, the device also includes 1GB RAM, 16GB of internal memory, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a microSD card slot for an additional storage space of [up to] 32GB, Bluetooth v2.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n.as well as Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich preloaded.

In comparison, the current version of the Galaxy S2 is shipped with a 1.2 GHz Exynos processor. It's also not the first Plus version by Samsung, the Korean handset maker recently launched the Galaxy S Plus, an upgraded edition of Galaxy S.

Pricing and availability have yet to be confirmed, but if the rumors online are to be believed, it's expected to fall into the low-to-mid range offering, which might make it an attractive (cheaper) alternative to the hugely popular Galaxy S3.

This product seems to be out of place. It would've made sense if Samsung released this after the S2 launch, but BEFORE the S3 launch...but wait, that would be copying the iPhone release model

They can't sue them for this! Right (psychological war)?

Where is this to be released? If this falls into a lower price point, it could be really good for Pre-Paid.

No idea mate, seems to replace the single home button on most of their other devices. Maybe they''re copying Windows Phone now?

The menu button is still a menu button on devices that still have it (eg. Nexus S).

Why does it have four buttons? Since ICS the menu button has been obsolete hasn't it?

legacy apps will still need the menu button. if they use the on-screen buttons , a little three-dotted thing appears so that u can use it
