What could possibly be better than a Galaxy S II? Well, a Galaxy S II LTE, of course. But what could be better than even that? The Galaxy S II HD LTE. We're thinking that Samsung
is pushing the limits of naming nomenclature already, but there's no denying the pure impressiveness of their newest smartphone. The company just announced the official launch of the Galaxy S II LTE and S II HD LTE, with the first guy offering a 4.5-inch WVGA (800×480) Super AMOLED Plus display, Android 2.3, and a 1.5GHz dual core applications processor.
It'll also support LTE
with transmission five times faster than 3G, allowing the user to download 138 music files (4MB), 110 eBooks (5MB), and six HD games (90MB) in a minute. There's an 8MP camera, 1080p HD support and a TV-Out function function based on the MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) adapter. The phone also touts embedded 16GB memory, a 1850mAh battery, NFC (Near Field Communication), WiFi a/b/g/n support, and Bluetooth 3.0+HS.
The HD brother has a remarkable 1280x720 resolution display, making it the first AMOLED display to feature 316 pixels per inch (ppi), higher than the standard 300ppi. More news on the panel: 4.65-inch screen, screen ratio of 16:9, 110% natural color reproduction, and 180-degree viewing angle that ensures a clear image from far left or right. The phone supports multiple modes including LTE, HSPA+ (for SKT and KT) and Rev.A (for LGU+), and WCDMA/GSM (roaming), and the chassis itself is only 9.5mm thick.
We wonder if Apple's going to take a swing at these guys, too.
