Updated Samsung Galaxy S now available

Mobile phone network Vodafone has listed the update to the original Samsung Galaxy S - the Galaxy S Plus, which is now on sale on contracts starting from £31 a month.

The Samsung Galaxy S Plus is the same handset as their best-selling original mobile from mid-2010, only with a few updates to make the new version more relevant when compared with other mobile phones around today.

It has been reported Vodafone is the only network to be carrying the Samsung Galaxy S Plus, ideally for those who favour the older model over the new Samsung Galaxy S II.

Samsung's Galaxy S Plus has the same dimensions and look of the first device, along with the same 4-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touch screen.

The key differences between the two models are the updated processor, from a 1GHz CPU to a 1.4 variant and an improved battery life with a 1650mAh power source, from a 1500 mAh version.

Android 'Gingerbread' 2.3.3 runs on the newer model, along with the Samsung TouchWiz 3.0 UI – all of which is already available to existing mobiles, from an update via the Kies software.

Vodafone is selling the Samsung Galaxy S Plus on 12 month contracts, with a cost attached of £199 and on a 36-month price plan. This escalates to 18-month contracts, with the phone free at £36 a month and then on to 24 month price plans, at £31 a month.
