Galaxy S2 “Plus” versus iPhone 5? Release date in August or September [Rumor]
Samsung working on next Galaxy phone, sources say Galaxy S II Plus.
We received a bunch of e-mails from credible sources living in Asia that Samsung is planning to launch the next version of its popular Samsung Galaxy S II that will surely challenge the upcoming iPhone 5.
According to the note, the phone could use the “Galaxy S II Plus” branding, because the specs of the phone is not far from the current version of the Galaxy S II. The Galaxy S II Plus might include 1.4 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB RAM, and Android 2.3.4 with custom user interface courtesy of Samsung’s popular TouchWiz UI. Another source also added that the phone will arrive in August or September.
Android 2.3.4 is the latest build of Gingerbread that includes Google Talk with Video support, so we’re confident that if the new Galaxy S II phone will push through, it will then support Google’s new voice and video application.
Apparently, there’s also a new rumor “confirming” that the iPhone 5 will arrive in September, and the source of the leak is from an employee of a Chinese carrier. iPhone 5 is expected to include better processing power alongside Apple’s latest version of iOS that supports better notification and iCloud internet storage.
Update: However, one of the sources that leaked the information is also suggesting that Samsung will change the name of the phone, and will not include the Galaxy branding.
