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.
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.
