Get your buckets of salt ready as this will either make or break your anticipation of the supposed successor to the Samsung’s current flagship phone. Tech blogger Eldar Murtazin from good old Russia has tweeted a pic of what appears to be an upgraded version of the Galaxy S II. Currently nicknamed as the Samsung Galaxy S II Plus in the Android app An3DBenchXL, the model in question has a while finish and has ditched the hardware home button with a touch sensitive one.
The unit will be loaded with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and is rumored to debut on this year’s Mobile World Conference — as seen in the weather widget where it’s supposedly located in Barcelona, and that “Mobile World Live Keynote” memo entry. For its form factor, the device is definitely thin, either on-par with the Galaxy S II or even thinner. There also appeared a “Galaxy S II Plus” on benchmarks which allegedly has a 1.5 GHz dual-core Samsung Exynos processor though this device ran on Gingerbread, further bringing confusion on the rumor mill.
In any case, what’s clear is that Samsung won’t be releasing the much waited Samsung Galaxy S III in MWC. Murtazin then claims that the S III will arrive sometime in April. So it’s basically a wait and see game for the Android aficionados out there.
