Samsung to upgrade the Galaxy Pocket
Galaxy Pocket Plus

Mobile gamers preferring small devices for their gambling needs will soon be able to buy Samsung Galaxy Pocket Plus devices.

The Samsung Galaxy Pocket is popular among a wide range of mobile casino regulars thanks to its small size and pretty decent specs. The device is a budget smartphone combining low price and small size with an acceptable list of features.

The Korean giant is planning to replace the popular smartphone with the Galaxy Pocket Plus later this year. Rumors at Android casino forums suggest the Pocket Plus will receive a processor upgraded to 850MHz, possibly with a brand new architecture, 512MB of RAM instead of 384, and 4GB or internal memory will replace the 3GB found in Galaxy Pocket.

The operating system will also be bumped up to Android Ice Cream Sandwich, taking the mobile casino games experience on a qualitatively new level.

Other features of the smartphone will remain unchanged: 2.8 inch QVGA screen, quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G connectivity, 2MP camera, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, FM-radio and a microSD card slot for memory extension will all make their way from Galaxy Pocket into the Galaxy Pocket Plus.

So far, there’s no information on the exact release date and pricing policy for the upcoming Samsung smartphone, however, the device is expected to launch in the first half of 2013.
