Samsung Galaxy Pocket Plus image leaks alongside specs. It’s almost identical to its predecessor

It was over a month ago when we first heard about the Samsung Galaxy Pocket Plus. It seems like the Korean company has suddenly fallen in love with the word ‘plus’, as it’s now gladly slapping it onto any number of devices. Lack of imagination, perhaps?

You can see what the Galaxy Pocket Plus looks like in the image below. Hint – exactly the same as the Galaxy Pocket. Thankfully, its specs have also made their way to SamMobile, so we can talk about them now.

GT-S5301

The handset will have a 2.8-inch 240×320 touchscreen, a 2 MP camera, an 850 MHz Broadcom processor, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of built-in storage space, quad-band GSM, HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 1,200 mAh battery. It will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Compared to the non-Plus version, it’s a really, really small step up in terms of processor speed (a whole 18 MHz!) and storage space (1 GB extra), and everything else seems to have stayed the same. Of course, the Galaxy Pocket Plus will ship with Ice Cream Sandwich, whereas its predecessor is stuck on Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

It will take us a while, but Samsung seems intent on training us to understand that ‘plus’ shouldn’t necessarily mean something a whole lot better than before. What things are better are minor. That’s the case here, and it’s certainly the case with the recently unveiled Galaxy S II Plus.

Or maybe, just maybe, ‘plus’ stands for ‘Broadcom processor’. At least it seems so in Samsung’s strange world.

    Phone of the year, this is the GS4/Optimus G2 slayer. I can already envision queues for this monster of a phone, wow, that screen is huge too, so little bezel. Even Desktops should be worried now.

    I wouldn’t even use it if someone gave it to me for free.

    What carrier will sell this?

    true these are late 2014 specs at best. ZTE wombat and the Galaxy Pocket Plus are enough to sway me from purchasing a Note 3. That processor should also be troubling for the IPad 5 and dare i say, Tegra 5 even. I just fainted and went straight to the loo when i read this!

    id pay a handsome sum for this beast of a phone. Ultra Phone. Tell you what, even the S5 is going to have to be pretty damn special to top this because i seriously doubt the S4 will. Samsung just destroyed their own sales of their flagship by releasing this. I wonder what this also means for the Note series a other OEMs. It means they have little to no chance of succeeding when Samsung outdid themselves by releasing a product that should have been saved till the end of the year, thus not cannibalizing their Galaxy S sales. This also overshadows the next nexus release ¦/

    When a phone like the Galaxy Pocket Plus garners more comments than the rest of your articles combined along with the more popular handsets (which also get 0 comments most of the time) and also that column by resident Apple fanboy, Brian S Hell whom no one actually bothers replying to, its proof your blog has gone to the gutters!
