The slightly improved version of the popular Galaxy S is now available for purchase in the UK. Samsung Galaxy S Plus has hit shelves at Virgin Mobile and can be grabbed for free on select plans.
Moreover, this is the white version of the Galaxy S Plus, which was initially launched in Russia as Samsung Galaxy S 2011 Edition.
Customers who want to get this Gingerbread handset can do so for free on a £15.99 monthly contract for 24 months. However, this will only net them 75 minutes, 250 texts and 250MB of mobile data.
Those who want to switch to this carrier just for this smartphone are advised to ask their current provider for their PAC code in order to be able to keep their phone number. The PAC code must be sent to Virgin Mobile who will transfer the phone number as fast as possible.
