Samsung Announces Galaxy S II LTE, Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE
As expected, Samsung has announced the LTE versions of the Galaxy S II and the Galaxy Tab 8.9 and will be showing them both off in more detail at this week’s IFA conference in Berlin.
This announce comes just a few days after Verizon confirmed that it would not be carrying a Galaxy S II device leaving AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile as the carriers who will see a Galaxy S II device introduced tomorrow.
Of course, we’ve already seen what all three look like so it won’t be too much of a surprise.
These LTE devices will be upgrades over the original devices, the Galaxy Tab 8.9 has yet to be released in the U.S., and both will include a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and the Galaxy S II will be bumped up to 4.5-inches.
As for pricing and a release date, those details will likely be unveiled at IFA which starts on September 2nd and ends on September 7th. For those of you hoping for a Galaxy S II LTE on Verizon, this gives you a sliver of hope.
If you recall, a report claimed that Verizon would be carrying a phone similar to the Galaxy S II soon and while speculation rests on the Samsung Stratosphere, it’s possible that the Galaxy S II LTE aka Samsung Celox could be that phone.
Keep those fingers crossed.
