Samsung may have the Galaxy S II on the way to keep its flagship spot occupied, but according to the latest rumors there'll also be a replacement to the original single-core Galaxy S as well. Connected insider Eldar Murtazin
has heard that Samsung is readying the Galaxy S i9001, an overclocked version of the original device.
The Galaxy S i9001's single-core chip will apparently be running at 1.4GHz, rather than the 1GHz it originally offered. That, Murtazin suggests, will make the i9001 Samsung's rival to the HTC Pyramid
, though we're expecting the HTC handset to be dual-core.
Exact release dates are unknown, and of course none of this is official. Still, we wouldn't be surprised if Samsung milked the Galaxy S series' success a little longer, just as it has done with the recent 4G version
Update: Samsung Russia
has confirmed the Galaxy S Plus i9001, with a 4-inch Super AMOLED display, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, TouchWiz 3.0, 8GB of internal memory, HD video recording, a 1.4GHz processor and HD video recording/playback. It will arrive in Russia at the end of April, priced at 23,990 rubles ($844). [Thanks Kunal!]
