Samsung Throws 1280x720 Display On Massive 4.65" Galaxy S II HD LTE Smartphone

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.

Well Apple has the "retina display" thing down so therefore any screen that even enroaches on the "so small you can barely see the pixels approach is certain to be approached by an Apple Lawsuit.

Unless battery life gets better on these devices I would recommend people to stay with Apple.

As much as I want to back Android they have to improve battery life. Period.

pushing the limits of "naming" nomenclature already.... as opposed to what other type of nomenclature?

Really depends Thunderbird my Sensation lasts all day with mid to light usage. I can also carry my USB cord with me it weighs a couple of ounces. I have a car adapter and it plugs in to any computer USB port and charges. So I can charge anywhere easily and therefore see no issue with energy. As far as it goes you can also get an extra battery for $30 or less if you need it as well.

Either way I had the original EPIC (Sprint Galaxy 1) and this is the one thing that is a great upgrade for a Galaxy phone. Yes the dual core is great the memory and camera are great, but that was already true, so this upgrade in resolution is the only thing I saw that really needed it on a Galaxy phone. Oh and as far as it goes from what I have heard the Galaxy last longer than my Sensation anyway as far as battery life and efficiency goes

"This is certainly one of the most exciting smartphone ever. With almost 5 inches of screen real state this can be consider a mini tablet along with its fast dual core processor. I have my eyes on the non LTE though, just waiting to see if the Iphone 5 is all that and a bag of chips.'

@ rapid1 I am just bummed with my Samsung Captivate. I am on my 2nd one and battery life is horrible.

I might get a day out of it with only moderate internet use. At night say 10pm I am at 33%, that is not acceptable in my book.
