Just when you were thinking that there wasn’t going to be any more versions of the Samsung Galaxy S handset, up pops this gem. We’re hearing that another handset, called the Samsung Galaxy S ‘Plus’ is on the way, although it won’t be coming to the US anytime soon.
The Samsung Galaxy S Plus is going to be similar in appearance to the original, although it’s going to feature a metallic finish on the back of the handset, rather than the plastic case, as reported from Phandroid.

However, while you may be disappointed to hear that this won’t be shipping with a dual-core 1Ghz processor, it will instead be coming with a 1.4Ghz single core chip, perhaps taking a page out of the HTC Flyer‘s book since that tablet comes with a 1.5Ghz single core.
Other specs confirmed so far include a 4-inch Super AMOLED display, an 1650mAh battery, 8GB of internal memory and wait for it, Android 2.3 Gingerbread on top of Touch Wiz 4.0 – so that’s good. No word on what quality camera this will be shipping with yet or the included RAM, but we’ll let you know.
On to some more disappointing news, as we’re hearing this handset will be available in Russia first at the end of April, with a release elsewhere afterwards. It will be priced at around 23,990 rubles or $840 without contract.
What are your thoughts on this currently unannounced handset, does it appeal to you or not? The specs we know so far are decent and it’s rather interesting about that 1.4Ghz processor choice by Samsung. We’ll be sure to let you know when we get more details, especially if we hear about a release in the UK or US.
