We just told you about the Galaxy S II+ by Samsung earlier this morning, based on the rumored device’s benchmark profile showing up online from the day before. And now we’ve got word that we’re looking at the official press image of the device right there, and if you ask us it doesn’t look that bad at all. Even if we’re a bit disappointed that it isn’t the Galaxy S III, and it’s only a slight improvement over the original Galaxy S II, you can’t deny that it looks pretty sleek.
The image above comes from Mobile-Review editor Eldar Murtazin, which he posted via his Twitter account. As far as features go, as a refresher, we’re looking at a device that’s running a 1.5GHz dual-core processor under the hood, and will be running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. That last bit is very interesting, considering the benchmark test clearly states the Galaxy S II+ is running Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread, but things change.
We’ll have to wait and see what happens, but it’s definitely looking like Samsung is gearing up to show this particular handset off at Mobile World Congress later this month.
Update: Looks like there is some questions flying around to the legitimacy of the above leaked render. While it’s perfectly possible that the device you’re looking at above is a Photoshop creation, it’s also possible it isn’t. It could also be a double-effect, where the device stats are true but the image is fake. We’ll leave it up in the air for now, but as soon as we know more and hear something definitive, we’ll pass it along.
