Samsung ‘Galaxy S II Plus’ could premier before Galaxy S III

Do you remember long ago when Apple went ahead and held out from releasing an iPhone 5 - and just went along with the 4S instead? We could see a similar strategy from Samsung concerning the future of their 'Galaxy' flagship device. It has recently come to our attention that Samsung won't be showing off the GSIII at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain - thus makes perfect sense there may be a middle man underway.

A Galaxy S II Plus benchmark has been logged in the An3DBenchXL database, and fits our specifications of what this device could carry. The data shows it running Android 2.3.4 with a 1.5GHz processor, and WVGA display. It could very well be running the same processor as the Note.

To refresh your memory, there was indeed a Samsung Galaxy S Plus, so it makes sense to have a Galaxy S II Plus. The line has been practically flawless, and moved Android's reputation in a very positive direction - so why change now? Most of our questions will probably be solved at MWC, but until then - we run on leaked data and speculation.

    Well, even though I would definitely wait for the GSIII, choice is a good thing to have.
    The important thing is that Samsung is releasing the GSII Plus next to the GSIII (albeit a little bit earlier) rather than merely offering a disappointing mini-refresh like the iPhone 4S.

    My Galaxy S II is running 2.3.6 so running 2.3.4 sounds like minus to me.
