It’s been about three months since we first heard of the Samsung i9001, dubbed Galaxy S Plus or Galaxy S 2011 Edition, and since then it has been officially launched in Russia, and it’s also on its way to the Netherlands in the very near future.
This, if you remember, is an updated version of the Galaxy S, and features a better processor, larger battery, and runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread from the start. The Galaxy S Plus has a 1.4 GHz processor (the original only has 1 GHz), and a 1650 mAh battery (as opposed to 1500 mAh).
Today, Fonehome has learned from Samsung that this device will also become available in the UK later this year. Unfortunately, a more exact timeline has not been given. Nor any information whatsoever about pricing. It stands to reason though that this smartphone would be Samsung’s upper-midrange offering for 2011, being positioned slightly below the Galaxy S II in the manufacturer’s portfolio, and should be priced accordingly.
So it looks like if you’re in the UK you’ll still be able to get a decently-specced Samsung Android smartphone even if you don’t have enough money for the flagship Galaxy S II.
