Samsung Galaxy Pocket Plus with Android Ice Cream Sandwich coming soon?
Back in March, Samsung announced the Galaxy Pocket S5300, which is currently the company’s cheapest Android smartphone, being sold for around $130 (unlocked). A dual SIM version of the handset, called Galaxy Pocket Duos S5302, was also introduced, several months ago.
And now it looks like there is a third Galaxy Pocket in the making.
According to SamMobile, the new handset is called Samsung Galaxy Pocket Plus (model number S5301). Unlike the Pocket and Pocket Duos, which run Android 2.3 Gingerbread, the Pocket Plus runs Android Ice Cream Sandwich. Unfortunately, there is no word on what other features the Galaxy Pocket Plus S5301 will bring, and there are no images of it available.
As a reminder, the old Galaxy Pocket S5300 (pictured above) comes with a 2.8 inch QVGA display, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, 832 MHz single-core processor, 3GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 2MP rear camera. The new Plus version should have slightly improved specs.
While smartphones like the Galaxy Pocket don’t attract as much attention as the likes of Galaxy Note II and Galaxy S III (or the upcoming S 4), they are still important to Samsung, allowing to company to reach categories of customers that can’t afford its high-end and mid-end devices.
