Updated smartphone will not make its way to the UK

Samsung unveils Galaxy S II Plus

Announced today at CES 2013, Samsung has updated its Galaxy S II smartphone.

Running on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, the smartphone features a 1.2GHz dual core processor, 4.3-inch WVGA AMOLED Plus display, 8MP rear camera and a 2MP front-facing camera.

While the specs seem pretty much the same as the Galaxy S II, the new smartphone does feature the ability to simultaneously play a video in a pop-up window while using another app. This function also features on the Galaxy S III as well as the Galaxy Note II. And apart from the updated OS, that seems to be pretty much it.

Oh, and if you live in the UK, don’t expect to get your hands on the Galaxy S II Plus any time soon as a spokeswoman has confirmed to ZDNet that the smartphone will not be available over here.
