Samsung Galaxy Pocket Plus in works?

The existing Samsung Galaxy Pocket S5300 is the cheapest Android smartphone in the company’s portfolio and it’s also available in a dual SIM variant. However, both devices (single and dual SIM versions) run Android 2.3 Gingerbread which may soon not be a “good enough” option even for the emerging markets of the world. To “solve” this “issue,” Samsung will soon launch the slightly improved Galaxy Pocket Plus (model number S5301), which will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of box. The new OS may also require better hardware and while we’re not sure what will be inside the Galaxy Pocket Plus, we guess it will build on top of the original Galaxy Pocket’s specs, which include a 2.8-inch QVGA screen, HSDPA and Wi-Fi connectivity, 832MHz processor, GPS, 2-megapixel rear camera, 3GB of internal memory and a memory card slot.

We don’t even have an image to show you at the moment and what you see above is the “plain old” Galaxy Pocket. We will watch this story closely and let you know as soon as hear something new. These kind of devices are important for Samsung as they help it conquer emerging markets of the world, bringing smartphones to more people…
