Samsung Galaxy S II to get a Plus version with 1.5GHz processor?

Samsung logo The announcement that the Samsung Galaxy S III won't be unveiled at the MWC wasn’t met with much enthusiasm but Samsung may have something else instead - Galaxy S II Plus.

A device identifying itself as "Galaxy S 2+" showed up in the online test results of benchmark An3DBenchXL. The benchmark results offer the following info about the device: OS version 2.3.4, screen resolution 480x800 and CPU clock 1.5GHz.

The regular Galaxy S II has a 1.2GHz dual-core processor - and so does the regular Galaxy Nexus. But clues to an alleged upgrade of the Galaxy Nexus with a 1.5GHz processor and a new GPU showed up a couple of days ago (again in benchmark results).

Quite a coincidence, but a Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket i727, for example, more or less matches the specs - 1.5GHz CPU, Android Gingerbread and WVGA screen (though we know nothing of its size).

This might be an international version of the Skyrocket or S II LTE or another Qualcomm-powered S II, as those are usually US or South Korea only. Or it could be someone fooling the benchmark into misreporting the phone stats.

Still, it's impressive, since the 3D benchmark results from this Galaxy S II Plus are second only to a heavily overclocked Galaxy Nexus. Just don’t take them for granted. Also, an introduction of the device at the MWC might be more wishful thinking than certainty.
