If neither the Galaxy S III for Galaxy Note II are up your alley, perhaps you’ll prefer Samsung’s rumored Galaxy S II Plus or Galaxy Grand Duos. Because, I mean, who would want to throw down for two of the most exciting Android phones on the market (with Jelly Bean and multi-window support) when you can get mid-to-low-range devices?
The Galaxy S II Plus, essentially a rehash of the titanically popular Galaxy S II, will allegedly come equipped with that familiar WVGA 4.3-inch display, Android 4.1,an 8-megapixel camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera and “connectivity features,” though it’s unclear what exactly that entails. Connectivity to my refrigerator? To my washing machine? We’re guessing HSPA.
And then we have the Galaxy Grand Duos, which isn’t particularly exciting, and looks identical to the Galaxy S III. According to reports, the device will sport a 4.5-inch display with an 800 x 480-pixel resolution, Android 4.1, an 8-megapixel camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera and may possibly come with dual-SIM support. Duos, dual-SIM support. Get it?
There’s been no official (or unofficial) word on when either of the devices will go on sale, but we imagine we’ll hear more soon now that specs and photos are being leaked. Is this the big news Samsung plans on sharing at CES? We doubt it.
