Samsung must have had a revelation recently when they figured out a new way to name their slightly updated smartphones with the suffix “Plus”, just like how Apple added an “S” to the back of their iPhone 3G, iPhone 4, and some even say, the iPhone 5 will also be getting a similar treatment. The Samsung Galaxy Pocket Plus would be the latest device to arrive with such a suffix, and it does seem to resemble the Galaxy Pocket as it was – a mirror image, basically. So the exterior might look the same, but what about stuff underneath the hood?
Just to recap, the Samsung Galaxy Pocket Plus will come with a 2.8-inch 240×320 touchscreen display, a 2-megapixel camera at the back, an 850 MHz Broadcom processor, 512MB RAM, 4GB of internal memory, quad-band GSM, HSPA, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth connectivity, GPS support, and a 1,200mAh battery, all running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. This is just an additional 1GB of storage space and 18MHz of increase in processing speed, and of course, a bump in the operating system. I would like to see something more from the word “Plus”, perhaps they should call this the Samsung Galaxy Pocket Meh.
