Allow us to provide a distraction from the red hot Galaxy Note 2 for a while, as fresh information about the Samsung Galaxy S2 Plus and Galaxy Premier (also known as Superior) has made it to our desks. What we have here is the possible sheet of specs for the two unannounced phones from Sammy.

Here are the leaked specs of the Galaxy S2 Plus (GT-I9105) and Galaxy Premier (GT-I9260) that Sam Mobile has gotten their hands on.

Samsung Galaxy S2 Plus:

  • 4.3-inch WVGA Super AMOLED Plus Display
  • Single-core 1GHz MSM7227A-1 Turbo
  • 8MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera
  • 16GB/32GB and microSD card slot (up to 32GB)
  • 1,650mAh battery
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
  • 125.3 x 66.1 x 8.5 mm

Samsung Galaxy Premier:

  • 4.65-inch HD Display
  • Single-core 1GHz MSM7227A-1 Turbo
  • 8MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera
  • 8GB/16GB and microSD card slot (up to 64GB)
  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
  • 133.97 x 68.1 x 8.8 mm

The same source said that the two phones will be geared towards the mid-range market; retailers should be able to order them starting from week 47 this year.

Notice anything odd about the supposed specs above? Let’s start with the use of a positively ancient single-core 1GHz processor. Didn’t they say a week ago that the Galaxy S2 Plus and Galaxy Premier (Superior) would be sporting a dual-core 1.5GHz processor? The Galaxy Premier (GT-I9260) has been rumored to be the next Nexus phone, but seeing the processor and the inclusion of a microSD card slot points out that that won’t be the case.

Leaked specs come and go, and for now, this is what we have to play with. Until we hear something more concrete, we shouldn’t lose sleep over it. What do you think of the supposed specs of the Galaxy S2 Plus and Galaxy Premier?

    How is that a “plus” to the S2? Sounds like a huge step backwards with the single core CPU.

    Yeah, I don’t know why samsung would bother calling it plus when it has less power.
