Samsung is planning to release two Galaxy S2 Plus variants: the GT-i9105 and the NFC-enabled GT-9105P. The rest of the specs are still less than inspiring.

S2 Plus

Samsung has been dominating the Android landscape for quite some time now, but there was a time when it had to play second fiddle to HTC. We’d like to think that the introduction of the Galaxy S2 played a big role in the reversal of fortunes.

Unconfirmed reports about the “sequel” to the phone, the Galaxy S2 Plus, have been making rounds since last August. Now, we’re hearing that Samsung is planning to release two Galaxy S2 Plus variants, the GT-i9105 and GT-i9105P.

According to Unwired View, save for the inclusion of an NFC chip, which the GT-i9105P model will come with, the rest of the Galaxy S2 Plus specs are the same. In case you’ve forgotten all about the unremarkable sheet of specs, here’s what we know of the phone so far.

Like its predecessor, the S2 Plus will sport a 4.3-inch display with 800 x 480 resolution. In addition to the dual-core 1GHz processor, it’ll have 8GB of internal storage, 8MP main camera, 2MP front cam, 1,650mAh battery, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

For those who are still interested, the Galaxy S2 Plus might be launched in mid-January or February.
