4G LTE Samsung Celox Caught on Camera, Headed to the U.S.?



Last week, a phone called the Samsung Celox surfaced in a render showing off a Galaxy S II design and the ability to run on a 800MHz LTE frequency. That of course meant that it was possible that we wouldn’t see it launch in the United States. AT&T and Verizon both run on 700MHz LTE. Today, we have good news in the form of two photos that have leaked out showing off the Celox in the wild without the physical home button.

If you recall, the render had a physical home button. That very well could mean that the device you see here might be bound for North America and its various 4G LTE networks.

That’s purely speculation at this point but it seems fairly likely. The original Galaxy S devices arrived in the United States sans home button and it appears Samsung is doing the same with the Galaxy S II. It probably has something to do with a company called Apple and a device called the iPhone.

The rumored specifications on the Celox are impressive and include a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, is powered by Android Gingerbread and a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, has an 8MP rear camera and a 2MP front facing camera, and 16GB of internal storage.

No telling when this phone might hit the U.S., next month on Verizon is a possibility, but how does it look to you? Would you pass up the Droid Bionic for it?

    Aw, I liked the home button…
    Can apple really claim that having a central button on the face of a device is a patent violation?

      I know they could try, at least in the U.S., and I doubt Samsung really wants to risk that. Look at what just happened with the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the EU. =/

    That doesnt look 4.5 in that picture, more like 3.7-4.0.

    I would def go for this phone if it was released at the same time AND most importantly, had LTE as well

    That would be waaaaay cool if the Celox turns out to be a 4g LTE phone on Verizon.  It would give the HTC Vigor some stiff competition.  Bionic?  What’s a Bionic?
