South Korean electronics giant Samsung has officially unveiled its 'Galaxy S2 Plus', an upgrade of Galaxy S2 smartphone which was launched way back in April, 2011.

Samsung seems be in a roll right now; the company is grabbing headlines after unveiling its state-of-art 'Bendable Smartphone Screen Technology' at the International CES (Consumer Electronics Show) which is currently underway in Las Vegas.

Now, Samsung has launched the new Galaxy S2 Plus in Seoul, South Korea.

Galaxy S2 Plus seems a like a modest upgraded version of its predecessor, but on the bright side the new smartphone comes with the latest Android v4.1.2 OS (Jelly Bean).

The company claimed that the the smartphone's nature-inspired user-interface is complemented with intuitive features that make the device really easy to use. One such feature is the 'Direct Call' that enables users to automatically dial a call by taking the device to the ear.

It further added that the technology 'Smart Stay' recognises whether the user is looking at the screen to dim it accordingly. Another feature 'Smart Alert' lets users know about missed events or status updates just by picking up the phone.
