Iterative updates of the Samsung Galaxy S2 and Galaxy Note could be unveiled at this month’s Mobile World Congress (MWC), ameliorating disappointment that a bona-fide S2 sequel will be a no-show at the event.
Evidence that Sammy has a rejigged version of the blockbuster blower that is the S2 up its sleeve was unearthed by the good people at Pocket Now, who clocked a handset dubbed the S2 Plus in the database for a benchmark app.
According to the site, the beefed-up smartie will feature Android version 2.3.4 out of the box, as well as a 1.5GHz processor and a 480x800-pixel resolution screen of unspecified dimensions.
For news on a successor to the tablet-cum-smartphone mash-up known as the Galaxy Note, we’ve got mobilecowboys to thank. Citing gen gleaned from an unnamed insider, the Dutch site’s report is light on detail about specs. But we’re guessing that the ‘S’ part means it will pack a sinewy quad-core processor instead of the current-gen Note’s dual-core number.
News of Sammy’s product portfolio for 2012 comes as the company gears up to showcase what it’s got in store for us this year at the MWC tech expo.
Yesterday, in news that dashed hopes of Fandroids everywhere, it disclosed that it will not be revealing a successor to the S2 at the show. It will instead lift the lid on the phone informally dubbed the S3 at a separate launch event during the first half of 2012.
