Korean tech giant Samsung has introduced its Galaxy S2 Plus with all the top specs. It is set to compete with Nokia Lumia 820 besides many other mid-range handsets

After several weeks of speculations Korean tech giant Samsung has finally introduced Galaxy S2 Plus in the market. This is a mid-range smart-phone and cannot be called an iPhone 5 killer or to compete with Samsung’s own Galaxy S3 or Galaxy Note 2, the company’s top draws in the smart-phone market.

Nonetheless the Galaxy S2 Plus comes with enough ammo to attract people who want to go for a mid-range phone with great specs and features. Samsung seems to be betting big on the success of Galaxy S2 that sold the handset in millions. The company has kept the familiar touch of the smart-phone with all its essential features and expects people to fall for it when it is made available in the market later this month.

To be true, a mid-range phone with a great history is sure to attract people’s attention in the market and people will love it. Galaxy S2 Plus comes with a smaller size by Samsung’s standards, but a reasonably large display that is bigger than Apple’ iPhone 5.

So when it comes to camera quality it can compete with the best in the market.

The new smart-phone from Samsung comes with a new processor and software. It runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, which is the key attraction of the device.

It has an 8MP main camera with 1080p video recording. Samsung promises zero shutter lag for the handset. It has a 2MP rear camera as well. 3G connectivity, dual band Wi-Fi, HSPA+, 8GB built-in memory and microSD slot are other notable things with the machine. The S2 Plus has optional NFC. Along with Jelly Bean, NFC has more significance, indeed. It will help you use Android Beam feature nicely.

The Korean tech giant’s latest handset comes with almost all the media options. The Galaxy S2 Plus with NFC is 8.9mm thick, while its non-NFC version is slimmer at 8.5mm. They are respectively named the I9105P and I9105. Both the devices are taller at 125.3mm and wider at 66.1mm. As well, the handset weighs in at 121grams.
