Samsung Galaxy S Plus gets official in Russia as the Galaxy S 2011 Edition, has 1.4 GHz processor
The Samsung Galaxy S Plus was leaked just once up until today, but it looks like almost all the information in that leak was accurate – an impressive feat. Today, Samsung has officially announced the new device in Russia, where it will be sold under the name Samsung Galaxy S 2011 Edition. The smartphone may still be named Galaxy S Plus in other markets though, GSMArena suggests. That would after all make sense, as the name is the only thing that the leak in March seems to have been wrong about.
The Samsung Galaxy S 2011 Edition has a 1.4 GHz Qualcomm single-core processor, a 4-inch Super AMOLED 800×480 capacitive touchscreen, a 5-megapixel main camera with autofocus and 720p HD video recording, a VGA front-facing camera, 2 GB of ROM, 512 MB of RAM, 6 GB internal memory expandable via a microSD card slot, Bluetooth 3.0, HSPA+ 14.4 Mbps, HSUPA 5.76 Mbps, Wi-Fi, GPS, and a 1650 mAh battery. Its dimensions are 122.4×64.2×9.9 mm, and it weighs 119 grams.
The Samsung Galaxy S 2011 Edition runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread. It will become available in Russia in May for an estimated retail price of 21,990 rubles – approximately EUR 540 or $780.
Hopefully it will be cheaper in other markets, as unlocked smartphones are usually more expensive in Russia than in most European countries.
