It’s been a few months since the Samsung Galaxy S II first launched and it has been extremely successful so far. the Android device top the sales charts in the smartphone market and has indeed made a valiant attempt at living up to its label; the iPhone killer. Today we have news that a new LTE model of the Galaxy S II has showed up in South Korea.
The news comes from an image of the device that has surfaced on the internet, which in itself does not too convincing however it is backed up by a whole list of specs suggesting it does indeed exist. It’s going by the codename of Celox at the moment but seems to be exactly the same except a 4G version. The specs include a 4.5” WVGA Super AMOLED Plus display, 16GB of storage with a microSD slot for expansive storage of up to 32GB and a Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8060 processor.
As SammyHub explains the other features seem to be pretty much the same as the Galaxy S II although it features a larger 1750mAh battery; whereas the original model only has a 1650mAh battery cell. The device will also be running Gingerbread and has a front facing 2 megapixel camera as well as the 8 megapixel camera on the rear. It offers 800MHz of LTE support which allows up to 100Mbps downstream and 50Mbps upstream.
This is not the first device to appear sporting similar specs to the Galaxy S II as we previously brought you news of the Hercules handset. It’s a smartphone very similar to this although the Celox bears an LED flash, a back that sticks out and distinctively different home button in the picture. There is no word of a release date for this device or even if it will hit the market but it seems targeted for Europe’s 800MHz LTE rather than the 700MHz networks which both AT&T and Verizon possess in the US.
What do you think of this device? Do you think we will be seeing it released onto the market?
