Yesterday we learned from Samsung that it's not planning to announce the Samsung Galaxy S III at this month's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and at the same time, rumors hit the Interweb that Samsung might launch a Galaxy S II refresh called the Samsung Galaxy S II Plus. At least that's what a recent benchmark was suggesting. According to that, the Galaxy S II Plus will feature the same WVGA touchscreen like the Galaxy S II (display technology unknown), but it's expected that the S II Plus comes with a faster CPU at 1.5 GHz. Today, Eldar Murtazin followed up on Twitter and posted a picture which could be a press photo of the Samsung Galaxy S II Plus.

While the recent benchmark test ran on a Galaxy S II Plus with Android 2.3.4 (which is quite outdated anyway), Murtazin's photo suggests that the Galaxy S II Plus might comes with Android 4.0/Ice Cream Sandwich (which is more likely anyway).

Furthermore it suggests, that Samsung has replace the center button with three Ice Cream Sandwich-look alike touch sensitive buttons. On the other hand is the photo above lacking the Samsung-typical on/off button on the side, which is quite typical for Samsung Android phones. Instead, the right side looks rather plain. I looked again at the original photo and I found the power on/off button, ot at least something which looks like it.There's no confirmation yet that the photo above is either representing a real upcoming Samsung smartphone nor that it represents the Samsung Galaxy S II Plus but chances are high that a refreshed Galaxy S II might really looks similar.

In any case, we will learn more end of this month, stay tuned!

Cheers ~ Arne
