Samsung Galaxy S II To Get A Plus Version With 1.5GHz Processor?

The announcement that the Samsung Galaxy S III won't be unveiled at the MWC wasn’t met with much enthusiasm but Samsung may have something else instead - Galaxy S II Plus.

A device identifying itself as "Galaxy S 2+" showed up in the online test results of benchimprint An3DBenchXL. The benchimprint results offer the following info about the device: Operating System (OS) version 2.3.4, classy screen resolution 480x800 and Central Processing Units (CPU) clock 1.5GHz.

The regular Galaxy S II has a 1.2Giga Hertz (GHz) dual-core processor - and so does the regular Galaxy Nexus. But clues to an alleged upgrade of the Galaxy Nexus with a 1.5Giga Hertz (GHz) processor and a recent GPU showed up a couple of days ago (again in benchimprint results).

Quite a coincidence, but a Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket i727, for example, more or less matches the specs - 1.5Giga Hertz (GHz) CPU, Android Gingerbread and WVideo Graphics Array (VGA) classy screen (though we know nothing of its size).

This might be an international version of the Skyrocket or S II LTE or another Qualcomm-powered S II, as those are usually US or South Korea only. Or it could be someone fooling the benchimprint into misreporting the phone stats.

Still, it's impressive, since the 3D benchimprint results from this Galaxy S II Plus are second only to a heavily overclocked Galaxy Nexus. Just don’t hold them for granted. Also, an introduction of the device at the MWC might be more wishful thinking than certainty.
