A new leak hints that Samsung might be preparing to launch the Galaxy Pocket Plus, the successor to the budget-oriented Galaxy Pocket, very soon. The rumor claims Samsung will release the device globally within the first half of 2013. The Pocket Plus, much like the Galaxy Pocket, is aimed at the low-end prepaid market, but it will sport some decent hardware.
- Android IceCream Sandwich (4.0.4)
- BCM21654, 850Mhz Broadcom SoC
- GSM (GSM850/ EGSM900/ DCS1800/ PCS1900), WCDMA (W850/ W1900)
- 4G Bytes (eMMC) + 4G bits (RAM) memory
- 2 megapixel camera
- 2.8″ QVGA TFT (C-type, Multi Touch)
- 1200mAh standard battery
- A-GPS / BT v3.0 / USB v2.0 HS / WiFi (802.11 b/g/n) / FM Radio
- Sensors: Accelerometer, Digital Compass
The hardware in the Galaxy Pocket Plus looks good for a budget smartphone, except the 2.8-inch display will be a huge turnoff.
