Samsung 'Galaxy 4S' pic posted

Is S III stand-in snap real or Photoshop?

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

The Samsung Galaxy S II Plus, the smartphone the South Korean giant is said to be unveiling at this month's Mobile World Congress (MWC) show in place of the Galaxy S III, will be a skinny white boy.

Well, if a picture posted by Russian mobile phone blogger Eldar Murtazin on Twitter last night is anything to go by, it will be.

The S II Plus is being called Samsung's 'Galaxy 4S' - a reference to its role as a stand-in for the S III, seen as the equivalent of the Apple iPhone 5 that wasn't launched last Autumn as expected.

The pic shows nothing that identifies the phone specifically as the S II Plus, and there are already loud cries that the snap is just a bit of Photoshoppery.

Indeed, there are some distortions on the handset's sides the suggest someone has been tinkering with the image. Well, there it is - you decide.

The S II Plus hit the headlines yesterday when it appeared in an online collection of Android benchmark results. Samsung admitted earlier this week that the Galaxy S III will not debut at MWC. ®
