If Samsung wants to compete with Apple, they will have to release their flagship at around the same time as Apple, right? Following that as rule of thumb probably, there are rumours that Samsung will be upgrading their flagship smartphone – the Galaxy SII, and launch it sometime in August or September.
One greater than you shall come
According to Pop Herald, Samsung is working on what they call the Galaxy SII “Plus” which will boast of a slight improvement in specifications. Apparently, they came to know about the same through some of their sources in Asia. There are two different versions about what the device will be named though. While the Galaxy SII “Plus” seems to be the most probable, others are saying that Samsung will completely drop this handset from the Galaxy branding.
The specifications that are being spoken of are that the smartphone will be running on the latest flavour for Android aka Gingerbread 2.3.4. Also, the Galaxy SII “Plus” will be powered by a dual-core processor clocking 1.4 GHz and have 1 GB of RAM.
These guys also say that there’s confirmation of Apple launching the iPhone 5 in September this year. Like all rumours, we advise you take it with a pinch of salt.
