Samsung has unveiled a new version of the Galaxy S II including support for Long Term Evolution 4G. The Galaxy S II LTE runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and support for 3D graphics and gaming. It has a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, an 8-megapixel camera and HD video capture.
The device will ship with Samsung's various hubs, include the Social, Game, and Music hubs (Reader hub to be available after launch), which provide users with access to content, media, and other services. Samsung notes that the Galaxy S II will support the mobile hotspot feature and will allow up to eight other Wi-Fi devices to connect to the mobile network. Samsung didn't specify what bands the Galaxy S II LTE will support. AT&T and Verizon Wireless are deploying LTE on different slices of 700MHz spectrum in the U.S. European network operators are deploying LTE in a number of bands, including 800MHz, 1800MHz, and other frequencies. Samsung is expected to make a more formal announcement on September 1 in Berlin at the IFA event.
