Samsung has outed its latest iteration of the Galaxy S, the Samsung Galaxy S Plus i9001. Initially headed to Russia at the end of April – where it will launch as the Galaxy S 2011 Edition – the new version packs a 1.4GHz processor along with the same 4-inch WVGA Super AMOLED display of the original.
There’s also 8GB of internal storage, HD video recording and playback, and a bigger, 1,650 mAh battery with a new metal back panel to cover it. The Galaxy S Plus i9001 runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, with Samsung’s own TouchWiz 3.0 on top.
The new version will be priced at 23,990 rubles ($844) when it lands on Russian shores at the end of next month. No word on broader availability, but we’re guessing this new 2011 edition will be slotting in as the single-core mid-range device in Samsung’s range in a number of markets.
