Samsung Galaxy S II Plus appears with Exynos processor

This week the fabled Samsung smartphone model known as Galaxy S II Plus has shown its face once again, having disappeared from the news circuit for several weeks only to show up in model form with a few more specifications here well into the age of the Galaxy S III.
