It looks like Samsung wants to launch yet another version of the original Galaxy S Android smartphone. This time, the new model is called Samsung Galaxy S Plus i9001.
According to a LiveJournal page that seems to belong to Samsung Russia, the Galaxy S Plus will be launched with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and a powerful 1.4GHz processor (single core).
Other features should include TouchWiz 3.0 UI, 4 inch Super AMOLED display, 8GB of internal memory, a 1650 mAh battery, and a metallic back cover. Apparently, this is what the new Galaxy looks like (pretty much like the i9000 and i9003):
In Russia, the Samsung Galaxy S Plus should be available starting next month, for the hefty price of 23,990 rubles (about $840). We’re now waiting for an official announcement to come.
